If you’re part of my SnapChat family (follow along @merrittbeck), you saw this look when I was trying on some new pieces I got in the mail a couple weeks back! I’d been eyeing this ruffle sleeve top for a few weeks prior to purchasing it, and my blogger friend Emily Lunstroth even sent me a pic of it saying it looked like me before I’d even bought it! Accurate. I am OBSESSED with this top! As I mentioned in last week’s post, I like to find items in neutral colors that have special details – it keeps my fall/winter wardrobe from becoming boring or repetitive. This top is certainly one of those pieces – it’s just FUN. The ruffled sleeves make such a statement, but because of the easy t-shirt style and solid black color, it’s a staple too. Does that even make sense? Can there be such a thing as a statement staple? I’m running with it.

A few other statement staples you may want to take a peek at include a trendy pair of jeans in a classic shade, an everyday sweater with a cut-out detail, a striped blouse with elegant sleeves, and a solid blazer with exaggerated epaulets.

Another item that came in the same package from Nordstrom is this pair of dark wash flared FRAME jeans. I love the flattering high waist and how long these are! They look amazing with my favorite black pumps for dinner, don’t you think? I think they’ll be a go-to pair I reach for with all my favorite sweaters once the weather cools down too. The dark wash seems to elevate the look of denim that you just can’t achieve with lighter washes, so these are perfect for dressing up.
