All in the (back) Details

 Earlier this year (like way earlier than I should have been buying spring clothing) I went to Petal Boutique in Charlotte and had a little too much fun trying on spring/summer items. Which, of course, resulted in buying a lot and wishing for warmer temperatures more than ever! With warmer temperatures finally here in the south I have seized every opportunity to break out my favorite spring and summer attire.
Which includes this amazing top I purchased from them and have been dying to wear ever since! If there is one thing I love it is pieces with fun backs. And this one did not disappoint. I love the contrast of the ruffle front with the exposed and zippered back. 
Ruffles + Zipper + Exposed Back = my new favorite top.
Top: Petal // White Denim: J.Crew Factory // Sunglasses: Urban Outfitters // Clutch: Urban Outfitters (similar)
