I have been doing a lot of reading over the last few months. One of my favorite books I’ve read is “Atomic Habits.” It’s totally changed my life for the better. For instance, I’ve made it a priority lately to dress up while working from home. During the week, I’ll put on jeans with a cute henley or dressing up my favorite joggers with a puff sleeve sweater or a ruffle sleeve top and my favorite hoop earrings. One of the things author James Clear mentions in the book (“Atomic Habits”) is when you’re trying to create a new habit it’s important to do it every day. If you miss a day it’s okay, but if you miss two, you’re more likely to miss three, and may give up your habit. Since life is so uncertain at the moment, I’m doing anything and everything I possibly can to set up a routine or a bit of normalcy!
Ever since creating this routine, I am feeling a lot more like myself! I may not be researching the latest and greatest dresses for wedding guest season yet because who knows what summer will bring, but I have been shopping the latest fashion trends as of late. I’m obsessing over Lele Sadoughi headbands because I finally found a brand that doesn’t give me headaches, and my latest favorite: ruffle sleeve tops!
It’s no secret statement sleeves have been everything over the last five years. I’ve loved cold shoulder, off the shoulder, puff sleeve, balloon sleeve, and this season I’m obsessed with ruffle sleeve tops and padded shoulders (that’s another post!).
There is so much to love about ruffle sleeve tops! They’re feminine, frilly, beautiful, and have the power to dress up any outfit! You can wear them on a Zoom call with your coworkers or family. They’re perfect for the office, date night, brunch, church and so much more!
If you’re shopping for the perfect ruffle sleeve short sleeve or long sleeve top for spring 2021, you’re in luck! Today, I’m excited to share 20 trendy ruffle sleeve tops you’ll love.
