This statement will come as no surprise to those of you who have been following Bowtiful Life for a while now, but ruffles are one of my favorite kinds of embellishment on clothing! They add a feminine touch to any look and when they’re partnered with an edgier accessory or pair of shoes they create the perfect mix of sweet and sassy.

This red and ruffled dress is so fun and I fell in love with it as soon as I saw it! When I was little I used to wear red ALL the time. It was one of my go-to colors and I think at one point in time almost half of my closet was red. I haven’t been wearing red as much in the last few years, but this dress makes me want to add more red to my wardrobe again!
One of the things I like most about this dress is the placement of the ruffles. The ones on the bodice frame the shoulders without overpowering the torso. Likewise, the bottom ruffle is a nice finishing touch to a simpler silhouette and adds a nice “swishing” feeling as you walk. It’s an incredibly girly dress but also simple in structure.
These boots are some of my favorite shoes that I own. I don’t wear them incredibly often because of the height of the heel, but they’re fun to pull out when I want to add some extra “oomph” to a look. They’re surprisingly comfy for how tall the heel is and the over-the-knee part of the boot doesn’t slip down as you walk. To top all that off, they’re under $100!
