Chambray, Ruffles, and Off The Shoulder: The Tasting Room

July 12, 2017

Happy Mid-Summer! Seriously though this summer is flying by! It seems like just a few posts ago I was bracing myself for the summer hustle. Oh wait, it was only a few posts ago πŸ˜‰ No judging! ;p Thankfully our summer approach this time around I spoke about here has been so far so good. We are planning a little family trip later this month that I’m getting excited about. I’m very much looking forward to a change of scenery.

So let’s talk about this top shall we? For me, a piece that encompasses chambray, ruffles, AND off the shoulder calls for a little celebration. The combination just adds the right amount of sassy to our casual-comfy staple.

I chose to wear this fun little top to a social event at The Tasting Room last month. I paired it with white high-waisted cropped flared denim (which I LOVE) and a pair of Channel inspired tweed heels for some added texture. Lately I have been drawn to adding yellow to a look and my yellow jeweled vintage bag was up for the task.

Aside from the insane Houston summer heat showing itself as glistening beads, the ensemble worked perfectly. I have linked the outfit below. My top is currently on sale for only $15 so be sure to grab yours while you can. Also while my bag is a vintage find, I did manage to find a super cute yellow bag by Revolve here that totally pulls off a similar vibe.

Now it was my first time to visit The Tasting Room so just the new adventure alone was exciting. Throw in a group of lovely bloggers to catch up with and some fabulous 20’s inspired cocktails and you’ve got a great time. The staff so graciously welcomed us while sharing their concepts behind the modern twists they incorporated into classic cocktails from the 1920 Era. The Roaring Twenties happen to be one of my favorite eras so their inspired theme was quite fascinating!
