Ruffles In All The Right Places With Lark & Ro

It’s no secret… I’m a big fan of ruffles! Soft folds of fabric add shape and a feminine touch to pretty much anything they adorn. Both Lark & Ro dresses in today’s post just wouldn’t be the same without ruffles; they add that little extra zest and visual interest to make the dress more special (and in some cases, more flattering!).

The color of both dresses - blush pink and burgundy - are also very trendy for fall. Shades of pink and red were shown all over runways, and Lark & Ro does a great job of making those color palettes wearable for everyday life with affordable designs that make sense for work, church and/or weekends.   

Have you ever shopped Lark & Ro? Which ruffle dress do you like better?

(Note on sizing: I'm wearing size XS in the burgundy dress above, and S in the blush pink dress below. Lark & Ro’s fitted styles tend to run a bit small.)

Where does time go? Because it has been flying lately. I can't believe that FLBlogCon is already here! (This Saturday, 9/23.) Earlier this summer I was asked to be the afternoon keynote speaker, and I'll be discussing blogging pitfalls, and why and how we can overcome them. There are still a few conference tickets left, and you can use the code below to get $15 off. As for today's outfit? We snapped these photos on our way out of Miami. This was my road trip outfit, inspired by a catalog photo, which fit in so well with the seemingly endless colorful murals that Wynwood has to offer. It was a colorful send-off to a perfectly colorful trip!

I generally don't buy things without a well-thought out plan. But this purse was a total impulse buy - it was the last one on clearance and it was too over-the-top-Barbie to pass up!! During a recent brainstorming session, I was excited to realize it's the perfect complement to a pair of rose gold heels I recently added to my closet, and all of it looked great with a neon pink dress as the base. Hot, hot pink is perfect for Florida year-round and I can't wait to wear this look for a special event or fancy dinner soon!
