Ruffle Blouse, Jeans, Pumps & Wind

Yesterday afternoon downtown was so windy it gave Chicago a run for its money. But thank goodness this Doen ruffle blouse, Madewell jeans and Linea Paolo Valerie Pumps kept me grounded.

We hit the streets about 10 minutes before the downpour began.  Most of this is “pre” Hurricane Michael weather, which is supposed to be headed our way tomorrow.   We’ve lived here so long it takes a lot to ruffle our feathers and fly the coop.  However, I do love a great ruffle blouse.

This Doen Dilly top in toffee is the perfect neutral to pair with most items in your closet.  For today’s ootd I paired this blouse with Madewell cali demi-boot jeans, Linea Paolo Valerie pumps, Mango suede belt and J Crew jeweled earrings (similar here).  For some additional pizzazz I carried this adorable The Volon animal print bag.  Animal prints are on point this season and you cannot go wrong by updating your closet with a few new purchases.

When the downpour began I barely had time to put up my umbrella.  Since Hank’s Seafood restaurant was right around the corner we headed for shelter.  Unfortunately a stop to the lady’s room was necessary so I could dump out the water that collected inside my shoes.  Since we were hungry and already there, we stayed and ate – now that’s a happy ending.

    Beautiful outfit! Madewell Cali Demi jeans are one of my favorite fits. In fact I’m wearing a pair in a lighter wash right now 🙂

      Thank you! Every time I’m in Chicago I visit the Madewell store on Rush Street. I have more Madewell jeans in my closet than any other brand. My daughter works at Madewell so she always on the look out for me! XO
