One trend I am loving right now are ruffles and bell sleeves. The look is so chic to me, feminine and fun at the same time.  Plus, it’s a look I can actually wear to work as well as the weekend. Normally, I am not a huge trend person as I prefer to have more timeless pieces in my closet, however if I am buying a trendy item I tend to spend less and save more for the investment piece. I did pick up this top from Banana Republic recently which I wore this past weekend with white denim. I am also planning on wearing it with black denim, regular denim for a denim on denim look, and a black skirt for work. It’s a little short in the front and hits at the waist but not a crop top of any kind. Tomorrow starts Banana Republic’s friends and family so it will be on sale as well as my shoes shown here. I’ll also have a post tomorrow about what items I’d love to snag from the sale. Besides, the Nordstrom anniversary sale, the BR Friends and Family is one sale both the hubby and I love. Also, if you’re looking for a fun pair of earrings to invest in for Fall these gold orbit earrings from J.Crew are the ones. They are light weight and add a little dimension to an outfit versus plain gold earrings. J.Crew has been killing it this Summer with their earring selection. I seriously can’t get enough. You can shop this entire look below plus a few other ruffle tops I am loving right now.
