Sure, lots of people are loving the ruffles of spring, but what about the checks of spring! I found a top from Zara that combines all the trends: the big sleeve, the ruffle and the checks. It's all fabulous and I took this fashionable top out to one of my favorite places--Maman.
Oh how I love a great café and Maman checks all the boxes (pun intended). Normally when I pop into Maman, it's too catch up with friends or work from a booth as I nosh on a delicious baked goodie. But if you have time, stay for lunch or dinner. Isn't the setting swank.
Let me tell you, curling up with your email and a pistachio croissant in this setting is pretty swell. The vibe is all Paris and I think you'll love this spot.
Back to the clothes. This Zara tops was $39.95 the fuchsia gingham check caught my eye and I loved the easy fit. Yes, it's got a deep v-neck, but it also has a strap in back that helps the top stay up (I don't like fussy fashion or tops that have to be constantly adjusted. The swank ruffle sleeve, is all over the editorial pages and I've finally relented and tried it on. And I fell in love.
