Ruffles & Studs

BCBGeneration floral tunic/dress with ruffles, Romeo & Juliet Couture studded leggings, Banana Republic Merino wool cardigan, Vince Camuto cut-out booties (last seen here), Gucci 'Joy' Boston bag, Movado watch

I'm not someone who can normally pull off ruffles. I actually think I look pretty ridiculous in ruffles. This tunic/dress had very minimal ruffles so I thought it could maybe work. My mom actually picked out this dress but I thought it wasn't "me" at all, so she convinced me to buy it for my sister. My sister hasn't come into town to claim it yet so I decided to give it a shot on one of my "What do I wear!?" days. It's a few inches shy of it being able to be worn as a dress (even though my mom was convinced it could be), so I paired it with some studded leggings. They were the first ones I pulled out of my drawer and it was 7:30 a.m. so I really didn't care if they were studded or not. It worked out though, I think the studs gave it a nice touch and made the outfit less "mommy-like." I was self conscious because I kept thinking I was dressed too much like a mom.

What do you guys think?

  20. Haha, Mom-fashion has such a bad rep. How about we call it lazy Mom fashion. I might be a Mom but I hope I'm not in that category! Haha :)

    I think the studded leggings save you in this case--they give it a little edge and you need it if you want to stray from looking too uuuuber girly conservative! I would have added some edgy jewelry too to give it less of a mom look.

    I love tunic on you though! Trying new things is always fun!
