First, I have an Anthro giftcard that's been burning a hole in my pocket but everything is so aggressively ruffled that I'm having a hard time finding anything that suits me. I did, however, see this blouse:

It's really cute but they had five in the store, all size XS. Great. I can order it online but shipping is $10(!) and that makes me mad. I moved on to LOFT because y'all already know I have my sights set on the tulip print utility blouse:

But I also really like this spotted ruffle neck blouse:

Overall I think it's a cute top but oh, the tyranny of the ruffle continues. At least they're tiny? Barely noticeable. I always keep an eye on Banana just in case things change and I did like the look of this:

But otherwise Banana Republic is a SEA OF RUFFLES OH MY GOD THE RUFFLES WHY WILL NOT END. WHY.
Finally, I wandered over to TJ Maxx land and immediately fell for this pretty Joie top except it's only available in XS which seems to be my life these days. There's also this Joie blouse (in more sizes) which is so pretty but not my style and there's this DVF top which definitely is:

But it's more than I want to spend and what did I just say yesterday about high-maintenance clothing? Please remind me I said that. Going to take a nap now.
