When Colors Fade...

When Colors Fade...

Hey Everyone! Today's post is all about pastels! Personally I love more settle colors! I got inspiration from the photo in the collage above! I love lace dresses and I know I did a post not to long ago about them, but I feel like the more I use pieces over it just shows you the versatility of the piece! So I started out with a lace dress, most of the time I belt lace dresses with a simple brown skinny belt. Next I added a very pale pink colored blazer! I have really been loving blazers lately! I think the blazer adds something unique in the way that the outfit is styled! Next I added some oxfords shoes! I think they add a bit of a vintage feel! Next I added this pretty pale pink clutch, with a chain!(I used a similar clutch in one of my recent posts, the one in that post was black though!) For accessories I really love rings with a pretty stone in the middle! And lastly I added a pretty sea foam green necklace! The outfit needed at least one little pop of color! I hope you liked this outfit! I would love to hear your thoughts so leave comments below! And feel free to comment on any previous post as well!

Colors & Promises

Colors and Promises
Hey Everyone! Today's post is just a simple outfit that is a little bit dressed up! It could be worn out to dinner, to a play, or maybe just a day you feel like getting a bit more dressed up! I started with a plain black skirt, which for me is a basic because you can build so many outfits around it! Next I added a loose fitting white/creamy top! I love the shape of this top because it is casual, but it can be dressed up with dressier pieces! For some color I added a deep red cardigan! Next I added some really fun, leopard print flats! I personally think having a pop of leopard print in a shoe or a scarf is the best way to pull leopard off! Another option for shoes is wearing some black flats or heels which ever you prefer, if you wear the black skirt, black tights, and black shoes it will help elongate your legs. Wearing all of one color creates one long line! For a purse I chose a simple clutch with a gold chain! Hope you enjoyed this outfit! Leave a comment below! I would love to hear your thoughts!

Leather and Lace

Leather and Lace
Hey Everyone! Today's post is a really fun outfit that is both girly and edgy! Usually my posts tend to be about pretty girly outfits just because that reflects my personal style, but today's outfit is a little bit of a mix! Like I said I love girly pieces and one of my favorite pieces is a cream lace dress. To compliment the dress I added a leather jacket. I really love the leather jacket the girl in the picture is wearing. I think the silhouette is very feminine with the cropped sleeves, but at the same time its still a leather jacket, which is  very edgy! For shoes I went with some military style boots! I really like boots like this just because you can put them in a very girly outfit or put them in a bit of an edgier outfit and they still look great! For accessories I added just a simple gold cuff and a belt to cinch in the waist! Hope you enjoyed this post! Leave your thoughts in the comments below!

Sweet Sophistication

Sweet Sophistication

Hey Everyone! Today's post is an outfit that would go perfectly for a casual Friday at work or maybe a day where you need to look a little bit businessy at school. I started off with the pink polka dot shirt. I really like this shirt because its very pretty just on its own. It doesn't need a whole lot to go with it! It has a bow detail on the neckline and cuffed sleeves. Next I added a pair of dark wash jeans. I love dark wash jeans because they really look nice with a variety of stuff. They make an outfit casual, but very clean cut! Next to compliment the shirt I added a brown blazer. The blazer has a more of relaxed fit which looks really nice with the shirt. For shoes I went with a ballet flat that compliments the brown blazer. To finish this look off I added a watch in rose gold. Lately for jewelry instead of going with your typical silver or gold, I've been liking rose gold. It tends to be more soft in my opinion. Hope you like the outfit!
