Reminiscent of Latin America and Spain, there's no better way to pair a ruffle skirt than with an off-the-shoulder top and strappy mules for a playful effect.

I don't know whether or not I have mentioned it before, but I'm originally from Honduras and I came to live to Germany around 14 years ago. If I didn't mention it, it's probably because not only do I not find it important nor relevant, but because  it is a bit sad for me to do so, since, like many Latin American countries,  it is a very poor and politically unstable place infested with crime and corruption. Don't get me wrong, because I am by no means embarassed of it and despite its problems, it is an incredibly beautiful country with the kindest and warmest people you will ever meet and with the most paradisiac turquoise-watered and white sand beaches you will ever put a foot on. But don't get me wrong either, because I am not proud of it either.

You see, if I never mentioned where I come from, it is because I only want people to judge me based solely on the quality of my work, my abilities, talents, skills, ethics, intellect, personality, i.e. for who I actually am, not based on a geographic location, which I didn't choose. No human being is their country, neither does that say who you really are. Sadly, a lot of people can't get past prejudice and stereotyping and I base what I am saying not only on observation, but on many negative past experiences ranging from scoffs as soon as I mention my origin to denying me job opportunities, particularly regarding my work as a blogger coming from German PR agencies. But I'll leave that to another blog post.

Having said that, I've discovered that I feel related to ruffled garments and off-the-shoulder tops, two Latin elements (sans the vivid colors and the prints). I own around 3-4 ruffled skirts and probably the double amount of off-the shoulder tops. Yes, that's how much I love it.

I've  read several articles on online magazines  with fashion editors saying good-bye to off-the-shoulder tops in a condescending tone, but I'm sorry to let you know (provided you aren't enthusiastic about them), that they are not going anywhere anytime soon. And I'm not complaining.
