What could get better than ruffles and ripped denim? I am just loving anything with ruffles on it this season and this simple top is perfectly oversized and incredibly flattering. I stumbled upon it on the clearance rack at my local Express and I just had to have it! Since this one sold out I found a couple of very similar options for under $50! This one is a more casual, sweatshirt material and this one is a bit more dressy.

And can we talk about this denim for a minute? Express has always been one of my favorite places to buy denim for a few reasons:

1 // They are always on trend. I’m seeing unfinished hems, heavy distressing, and girlfriend fits!

2 // The price is great for a high quality jean. They are always going on sale!

3 // They make them in longs! This one is a huge one for me! And they are so flattering on everyone.

I love the distressing and the wash on the ones I am wearing but I have been searching for the perfect black pair and these just might be the ones! I’ve also been eyeing these. Grab a couple of pairs for the cooler months while they’re on sale! Where is your fave place to buy denim?

    It’s a little hard to see the ruffles on the top in your pictures, but the similar ones that you posted look absolutely amazing! I’m loving ruffles and bell sleeves this season and since it’s just starting to get cold I’m on the hunt for some ruffle sweaters, this one is amazing!
