Breezy Days: Ruffle Monster

Ruffle Monster

July 16, 2012
I remember when I saw this shirt on the hanger in the Anthropologie sale section and was like:
"Ummm, who would wear that ruffle monstrosity."

My mom convinced me to at least try it on, and much to my surprise it looked bangin'.
Another point for you mom!
So now I'm the one who would wear that ruffle monstrosity.
The plan was to hit up a dollar movie on Saturday night, so I hurry to get dressed, I walk out of the bathroom to show off my date look and Ryan looks at me and says:
"Bri, you look hot. But you know that we are going to see a dollar movie...in Provo."

So what! I needed an excuse to dress up :)
In the end, the dollar movie was a bust so we meandered Barnes & Noble and Best Buy, then went home to make dinner together and cuddle and watch a movie.
Top: Anthro//Jeans: AE//Hoops: Target//Belt: F21

And during this photo shoot, these dumb shoes broke.
As soon as I'm makin' boo-koo bucks, I'm investing in some nice-ace shoes.
Steve Madden, Zara, ShoeMint, etc etc.
No more of this:
"I'm gonna buy this really cute cheap pair of shoes and they will last me forever!"
Yup, that's false.
Anyone read that "Fast Food Fashion" book yet? Cause I think that's the jist of the book.

Now I'm off to convince my body to get up and work out.
Or at least just to put on the work-out gear.

I love the ruffles! So cute. I had the same problem with the gym today, I got there and was like blahhhh why do I do this. Then after I was like oh yeah.... if only I could have that oh yeah moment first.

That top is super cute on you!

Most of my wedge are Steve Madden and I love them. But I get most of them at a discounted price at Nordstrom Rack, Marshall's, Ross, DSW...I don't think I've ever bought a full priced pair of Steve Madden's because they can get pricey!
