Puff and Polka

Marc by Marc Jacobs Top (similar style here), American Eagle Denim, Jcrew Flats (similar style here), Express Pearl Earrings

Hi my favorites! I'm wearing one of my most beloved tops today. I go gaga over shoulder detail--especially puff sleeves. Pairing shoulder volume with a slim bottom is key to balancing out the proportions. You never want anything too large on bottom which will add bulk. I think skinny denim or a pencil skirt are fabulous options.

Lots of Love xoxo
Darby

  6. I have to say, not many people could pull off a top like that, but you look awesome, Darby! I love it paired with the polka dot skinnies--I have a similar top and you're my outfit inspiration for tomorrow!
