Now Trending: Colonial Farmers

And by colonial farmers (or renaissance prairie girls even) I obviously mean high, ruffled necks.

From Chanel to Altuzarra to McQueen, there's been an abundance of frilly turtleneck-like blouses all over the runway and my shopping cart. It's definitely kind of a weird look at first, like the kind that could only look good on a 7 foot gazelle of a model, but once you try it I can almost guarantee you'll love it. I don't know what it is but something about a covered neck is really elegant to me. As soon as I saw the below one from Zara I knew it was coming home with me.

The first time I wore it I paired it with denim shorts and pumps. I was in LA and definitely felt out of place, but once I got one compliment they didn't seem to stop coming. If you like compliments, I highly recommend it. Also, a special shout out to these glorious sleeves.

The plumettes, the frill, the volume - it all makes my heart flutter.
