I'm always looking for ways to jazz up a collared shirt.  Don't get me wrong - a white oxford is a classic and a wardrobe staple, but it can get a bit monotonous.  You can go with a fun print or pattern like this one, or one with a fun collar as seen here, but there's nothing quite like the added dimension of ruffles.  I scored this one during the Nordstrom anniversary sale and I just love the color, the material, and all the lovely details (there's buttons down the back).  This shirt and this shirt are other great ruffle top options!

FYI the Nordstrom website says this shirt runs true to size but if you want it to fit like it does on the model and on Julie, I recommend going at least a size up as the sleeves and body are very short.  I'm typically a small but went with a medium...and I think I would have been happy with a large too!

  1. I love the combination of a blue top with the white pants. I also like how you added camel colored bag and shoes. They look great.
