This post is a part of my recent collaboration with Amberleaf. All opinions, and skirts, are my own. However, as women, friends, and some of the best Blazers I’ve ever worn I can’t recommend them enough. You can shop the full Amberleaf collection here.
Normally, I’m not a big ruffle gal. They bring to mind sugary sweet little girls, and when Shirely Temple was dressed WAY too young for her real age for WAY too long. However, Ruffles done right? Ruffles balanced? Ruffles with an edge? Those are Ruffles I can get behind.
This blazer: simple. Chic. I love the zipper. The color. That it would be perfect with both a suit and with jeans. It has just a slight edge, and I love everything with an edge.
This skirt: the heaviest thing I own. (Seriously) It’s from one of H&M’s very first collabs (Eddy Anemian), and I’ve been in love with it ever since. Yes, it’s Ruffles, but it’s not sweet. It looks great with t-shirts, fancy tops, sweaters, and Blazers (clearly). I’ve worn with heels and sneakers and flip flops. It’s feminine, but not a push over.
(Note: though the collab is years old, I’ve found an exact match for someone! I’ve also linked picks from H&M’s current collection. I’ve found so many amazing pieces over the years at H&M and I hope you have the same luck!)
The combo: We know I love a great Juxatipositon. The blazer edges up the skirt, making it workwear that would be perfect at an evening event. I say things like this all the time, but the point I’m really trying to make is that I believe in pieces that go together in unexpected ways. That can let you show up in your life for every facet. Interesting by themselves and super interesting together. For me, both this blazer and this skirt embody that.
And again, I’m a big fan of Amberleaf. Their pieces are expertly made, classic, and well worth your investment.
As mentioned, there are so many picks for you below!
