Casual Friday in a Ruffle Tank and Denim Cut-Offs

The other day I went searching in my closet.  Not after anything in particular, but sometimes when I don't know what to wear, I just start digging though everything I own.  I'm not sure if it's because I'm hoping that a new outfit idea will pop in my head while I dig, or the fact that I'm secretly wishing that something new will miraculously appear, but I'm guessing it's probably a mix of both.  Then just like that, I found it.  Hidden among all the black tops hanging in my closet, there is was, a sleeveless ruffle hem Alisha Levine blouse with the tags still on!  I bought this top five years ago and have never worn it!  With all of the closet clean outs I have performed in the last five years, I could never part with it, because I'm truly obsessed with this top.  It took me a couple of minutes to realize why I hadn't worn it before.  It's because my husband never liked the top.  But guess what, I don't care anymore.  I love it!  How can you not love the ruffle hem and the open back?  It's girly and sexy at the same time.  I ended up wearing this top last Friday, right after finding it, and paired it with my jean shorts, favorite Sam Edelman sandals and finished my outfit with my fringe bag for a causal summer look.
