Preppy Flamenco

Sweater: H&M, Pants: Level 99, Shoes: Zara, Belt: H&M, Sunglasses: BP

I guess I'm sort of into ruffles right now. Have you ever been to a flamenco show? While I lived in Spain, I attended a show in Sevilla and I was so inspired. The dancing was gorgeous of course, but so were the costumes! The full and abundant ruffles, the slicked-back hair, the red lipstick, the passion. Since then, I've always enjoyed when I can incorporate pieces of flamenco into my outfits. Now, this ensemble is FAR from a flamenco dancer's, but it incorporates some small pieces of something that I love and that makes me happy. 

What makes you happy? Do you have any favorite pieces that you like to incorporate into your outfits?
