Pom-Poms, Scallops, Tassels! Oh MY!!!

 Are you a scallop or a ruffle girl? How about some fringe or tassels? 

I know all these elements are big this season, especially ruffles. If you see a ruffle on me it will be a very soft one nothing too poofy for me. I am poofy enough on my own.

Now if you are talking fringe or pom poms I have discovered I am all over that trend. Who knew??

Scallops fall in line perfectly with my preppy sensibilities.

I have a few pieces on my radar and a few that I already own that I will share with you in each of the above categories.....


I just got this cute navy scalloped skirt from Talbots, it fits like a glove and I love the detail on the bottom of the hem, which hits me just barely at the top of my knee..

I am going to have fun wearing this for the rest of the summer. I think it can be a dress up,  or dress down piece according to the accessories I put with it. 

Scallops can get a bit sweet and cutesy so I try to be careful when choosing a piece of clothing, but they are so preppy and I love that!

POM-POMS and Tassels

Pom-poms have been on trend for a couple of season and I must say I am totally on board.

 I did not even realize I was missing something in my life until I purchased my first pom pom dress last year for a swimsuit cover up, and I found I actually wore it as a a dress as well, plus it has POCKETS!!!!

I have a couple of pieces on my shopping list that have some pom poms on them as well as tassels. They just say FUN To me.

If and when I get this dress I will probably have the sleeves shortened a bit. I find for me a little shorter works better. A simple alteration to make it more me.

This is too cute for words, gingham and tassels, count me in. I would wear this with white denim cut offs or white jeans.

Blue and white stripes with black is so my style. Sounds very much like my great room in our home!!! Just a fun little top that will be very cool for the summer heat.

It is knit, blue and comfy PLUS a little fun tassel  detail on the bottom.

I am not a big fan of off the shoulder for me, but I have found that if there are no embellishments on the top edge and it is plain with elastic it still looks cute up on the shoulder. This little cutie would be for a swimsuit cover up for me. It looks so cool and easy to wear.

This is a golden yellow color that I love wearing and the little touches of tassels makes it current and fun. I think a really cute pair of patterned slides would look great with this dress.

Can we all say CUUUUTE!!!

This is about as Bohemian as I will get and notice it is striped!! Go figure!!


I really like the soft ruffle on this chambray skirt. It would be so easy to wear with plain white or a black and white striped tank top and look cute with a pair of black slides or even flip flops.

Cool and easy breezy to wear in the summer. This would be a fun go-out-to-dinner dress. Good for packing too, it is knit!!

Of course there are shoes, sandals and bags with all of the above elements too. I feel another blog post coming on!!
