spring trends: puffy, pink and ruffled

Pink and puffy...
      I truly think I have a thing for fluffy rounded silhouettes. Remember all my fur jackets from winter? (Here --> Fur, fur, fur, fur) Just a slight affinity that I have when I want to mix up my usual straight and sleek attire. This fluffy sweatshirt (only $13!) is just the playful situation I love when mixed with one of my staple pieces - in this outfit, a wrapped faux leather skirt.

And I don't think anyone can escape that ruffled trend. For me, I can't get away with a massive amounts of ruffles - even though I wish I could. Probably only if in black but to get into the trend in a simple way, I love this easy ruffle tee that incorporates the ruffle trend with the cold shoulder trend. Effortless to wear with boyfriend jeans to mix up masculine and feminine or with a skirt.
