I bought this shirt fully knowing that it wasn't the perfect button up fit, but I'm determined I'm going to wear it into submission! I love a ruffle front shirt, even though conventional wisdom says leave the ruffles for the small busted. This one isn't flouncy ruffles, which tend to bounce and jump when you walk, they are rather structured, so I felt I could try to bend the rules a bit. I purchased it to go with my red pencil skirt, but I can't figure out my footwear, so it's been hanging out in the closet for a while.

Today, I grabbed it to layer with a gray cardi, even though I swore off wearing blouses like this under sweaters. It was too late this morning to change (that's a common theme with me!). I left home this morning with all sleeves down. I took a photo with them down until I realized what was really bugging me about the look and I rolled the sleeves up, which creates much less pull around the bust for me. I like it better this way.

Also showing an up close detail of the navy stripes, as well as my fun purple eyeglasses.
