    While we love neutral tones and soft hues, there's something unmistakably fun about a pretty print. From striped dresses to polka dot blouses and even quirky prints featuring cats, bicycles, and hearts, we can never get enough prints & patterns! Worn mixed and matched for an eclectic ensemble or paired with understated essentials for a casual outfit, prints can transform any outfit. A few of our favorite Ruchettes are incorporating these necessities and demonstrating how to mix basics with classic prints for a playful touch in their wardrobes!

    Transitional weather always calls for the essential light sweater and Naty Michele of A Love Affair With Fashion looks effortlessly chic in our First Kiss Knit Cardigan. She paired this oversized marled design printed cardigan with casual denim and a camisole for a cohesive ensemble. Naty played with hues of burgundy and white for a sweet daytime look!IMG_8977

    The perfect spring dress is a necessity for any occasion and Elana of Room 334 looks stunning in our Prepster Chambray Striped Dress. The intricate pinstripe print and white collar are perfect for this sweet look. She accessorized with muted hues pairing this outfit a cream belt and peach oxfords. Elana looks amazing in this preppy inspired outfit!shop-ruche-blue-collared-dress

    Julia Louise of Julia Louise Style is simply adorable in our Coney Island Polka Dot Romper! She complemented the bold allover polka dot print and added color to her look with a bright fuchsia cardigan to complete her ensemble. We love how Julia played with prints and colors in this fun outfit!DSC_0046-1024x680

    These Ruchettes are our style inspiration for everything printed. We love the balance of textured prints mixed with basic pieces and can't wait to incorporate these into our spring wardrobe!

    In honor of Mardi Gras, we're sharing a delightfully tasty dish that is perfect for crafting for a mellow date night at home, or for bringing to a celebratory potluck! We can almost hear the sounds of jazz and cheering for this upbeat and fun-filled holiday. Even if you're not walking the streets of New Orleans, you can still replicate our favorite cajun flavors with this saucy creole shrimp recipe from Half Baked Harvest. Fat Tuesday is all about indulging, so go ahead and treat yourself to something decadent today! Read on for this delicious Mardi Gras recipe. Big-Easy-Style-Saucy-Creole-Shrimp-7

    1/3 cup flour, use gluten free if needed
    1/3 cup canola oil
    1 small onion, chopped
    3 cloves garlic, minced or grated
    2 stalks celery, chopped
    1 green bell pepper, seeded + chopped
    1 (14 ounce) can stewed tomatoes
    1-2 tablespoons creole seasoning, depending on your taste
    1 tablespoon smoked paprika
    1 (12 ounce) beer

    In a medium size soup pot, brown the chorizo over medium high heat. Remove from the pot and drain on a paper towel lined plate. To the same pot, add the oil and flour, whisking until combined. Cook for 10 minutes or until the roux is lightly golden. Add the onion, garlic, celery, green pepper. Cook for another 10 minutes, stirring occasionally. Add tomatoes, 1 tablespoon creole seasoning and the smoked paprika, cook another minute. Slowly pour in the beer, add back the chorizo and bring the mixture to a low boil, simmer for 10-15 minutes.

    Meanwhile, heat a skillet over medium high heat. Once hot add the butter. Toss the shrimp with the cajun seasoning and place in the hot skillet. Sear on both side for about 4 minutes per side or until pink and cooked through. Remove from the heat. Now add the shrimp, Worcestershire and hot sauce to the creole mixture. Simmer another 5 minutes.

    Serve the shrimp over a bowl of hot rice with a side of beer bread for dipping.
