Sweet like cupcake! Ruffled top and layered skirt

Las Vegas, Nevad...






Let’s talk SUGAR, SPICE and everything NICE! Oddly enough, since being a little girl I never really enjoyed pink color. It was never my thing, and if to be honest I grew up with quite dislike towards everything pink. I can not really explain, it just happened so.

But growing up and actually starting to know the difference between pink, soft blush, baby pink, hot pink, fuchsia and other colors in pallet of pinks made me realize that on some occasions pink is just what I need. When summer is in town it is one of my favorite colors to wear.

For pink top I used Burda’s 8/2011 pattern 105 of a ruffle dress, I shortened it and placed a ruffle in slightly different position!

Paired up with white, or maybe neon, it creates fresh and sweet look for those breezy summer days. besides, if you make it in layers and ruffles, like I did, then it is a perfect party outfit right there!

    Gorgeous outfit, it suits you really well. I had the same feelings about pink and still the only pinkish outfits in my wardrobe are salmon pink.

    Very pretty! I feel the same about pink, it can be great sometimes, but annoying at others. I really like the shade of pink you chose, it’s perfect for this top!
