The Cutest Ruffle Sleeve Tee + The Best St. Paddy’s Day Sales

Hello, friends! Happy St. Paddy’s Day! I wish I’d been clever enough to shoot an outfit featuring some festive green for today, but alas, it didn’t occur to me until it was too late. I should have saved this one. It’s the perfect St. Paddy’s Day outfit, as it even incorporates some orange for us Protestants. (I like to cover all the bases, haha!)

So it’s day 15 of my 27 Days of Spring Fashion style series, and I have a casual spring outfit featuring this popular ruffle sleeve tee. Then at the end of this post, I’m rounding up some good weekend sales you don’t want to miss (including 30% off Tory Burch Miller sandals and Minnie travel flats and 25% off premium denim) so definitely scroll down for that!

The day we took these pictures, it was about 20 degrees with gusty winds. We jumped out of the car and literally ran across the parking lot to this wall. Paul set the camera and started snapping pictures as fast as he could, and we were back in the car in less than three minutes. It was almost comical. All that to say, the pictures today aren’t exactly our best work, but they get the job done.

This outfit is super simple, I know, but I personally think those are the best kinds! I’ve already featured this ruffle sleeve tee a couple of times. I included it in my last 5 Under $50 post and in last week’s Instagram roundup. It’s only $35, and it comes in this gorgeous red as well as white and black.

This top runs small, so I am actually wearing the large. I also had a medium, but I felt like it was a little snug across the chest and in the arms along the seam where the ruffles attach. If it shrinks at all, it would be a problem, so I kept the large. It is a little bit roomy, but I don’t mind. I like that it is shaped through the waist, and the length is perfect for me. I don’t need to front-tuck it to keep the outfit in balance.

I planned to style this top with my grey jeans for this post, but they were out being hemmed when we shot this look. I also debated wearing white jeans. This red will be fabulous with them, for sure, but I do a lot with white jeans this time of year, and I always like the combination of red with blue jeans. It’s nice to know I have lots of options for this top once the weather warms up a bit!

It’s driving me nuts the way my jeans were bagging out in the knees! After I saw these pictures, I threw them in the wash. They’re 98% cotton, and I’ve noticed them doing that in the knees after I’ve worn them for a while. I try not to wash my jeans too often, but when they start to look like this, it’s time.

That said, I love these jeans. They’re AG, so definitely spendy, but they are so comfortable, and I love the wash and the raw hem. So many raw hem jeans look funny to me, but AG does it right. They are also included in Bloomingdale’s Denim Days promotion — take 15% off one denim product and 25% off 2 or more.

I love the price point on these shoes and how they have the lace-up look without having to actually tie the laces. They’re easy to pull off and on, and they are very comfortable too.

Since I wore pewter shoes and carried a grey bag, I accessorized with silver jewelry. This necklace is old, and I haven’t seen anything quite like it in a while. I like how long it is, and that it has several charms rather than one big pendant. It just seems more casual and easy to wear, and you don’t have to worry about it turning around backward or anything. If you find something similar I can link to, let me know!

I love this casual outfit for early spring. It’s as easy to throw on as any t-shirt and jeans, but the ruffle sleeves lend a flirty, femininity to the otherwise basic outfit.

  1. You’re such a trooper with the weather, Jo-Lynne!! Although these are the times that it makes a good story in my experience!! ha ha!
    I’ve really been loving the raw hems lately—even though I’m old! Maybe one of the reasons is it makes it easier to hem my jeans—I just cut them!

  2. I just got this top! I do like it but got it in the small and although it works, I feel the length is a bit short and I like how flowy yours looks in your photos. I may exchange for the medium and hope it’s not too big! Also loving the flats! I broke down and got the leopard ones!! Such a fun look! Happy Weekend!

  3. Oh that color is gorgeous on you! I searched my closet for green, but only had turquoise in there (since doing a closet cleaning). Happy St. Patrick’s Day to you, Jo-Lynne!

  4. Just an FYI, I did some checking at my local Nordstroms here in Minneapolis/Mall of America and the top is from the juniors section! That is the reason why the sizes are off and the top runs so small. My jumior days are long gone!! LOL but you can pull it off as it looks so good on you!!

    Loving the outfits!!!

  5. I have a similar necklace that I fashioned together from Stella and Dot…a long silver plain chain and three different charms. Love it! Light and delicate and personalized with charms that I chose.
    Also, I have this tee but have not had the chance to wear it yet…too cold! Kudos to you for wearing it for pics in 20 degree temps. How do you manage to not look cold in the pics? Is alcohol involved?

  6. What an awesome top and shoes! I like how very natural you look! If the shoes had good arch support, I’d give them a try. Happy St. Patrick’s Day! Have fun.

  7. PSA. Neiman Marcus is running a Lucky You promotion. You get 30% off one full priced item. Finally ordered the Tory Burch Minnie Flats in Gray that I have been eyeing forever!

  8. Really? Its gave me 30%. I wonder if its because I have an Irish last name! For what its worth the promo code I used is Charm30

    1. WOW, that worked! Did you get an email with that? It might be for subscribers only. Signing up to get their emails now, lol. I often forget about Neimans b/c I get the same items at Nordstrom or Bloomies, but that is one good sale. I am going to have to use that on SOMETHING. LOL.

      1. No! I just followed your link and it came up. Now I am thinking of using a second email address on their site so I can pick up something else for 30% off! LOL!

          1. LOL! I got the pink/orange ones. I saw them on Southern Curls & Pearls and thought they were so cute. I would have gotten the black patent, but they don’t have my size.

  9. Every time you show this top, I debate ordering it. I’m going to pull the trigger and get it. I’m wearing the green cashmere sweater today for St Patricks Day.

    Do the Tory Burch shoes run true to size?

    1. Yes, these Minnie flats do. I have another style of their flats from the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale last summer that ran small, but these are true. I wear the same size as I do in the Lucky Brand flats and the Sam Edelman flats.
