Lace & Leather







Happy Friday, lovelies!

 We’ve had amazing weather the last couple of days which gave us the opportunity to spend some quality time in our favorite city: C H I C A G O. Yes, I am very much a city girl! There’s nothing else I enjoy more but stroll around the city with my family, grab a cup of coffee on the go, and watch the world go by at Millennium Park.

I am wearing a lace dress from OASAP which I have paired with one of my favorite biker-esque jackets (which I have purchased a while back in Germany), and my cozy faux fur scarf from H&M! This look is super chic for a stroll downtown, and yet comfortable enough to have fun with the fam(ily)!

As always, thanks so much for reading & have a great weekend! See you back here on Monday!

    Love the contrast of the lace with the leather! It makes it feminine with an edge, which is my favorite combination! The scarf is the perfect accessory! Gorgeous as always! Happy Halloween!

    Loving the hard and soft with the lace and leather! I just did something similar on my blog as well! Also, I have a coat almost exactly like that and was looking for some good pairings. They sell one almost exactly the same at NM Last Call! You always look so lovely.

      Sandy, I heart you! Cannot wait to share my bracelet from you! xoxo

    I agree with a previous comment, mixing hard and soft is my favorite and the lace and leather are perfect together. My favorite part of the whole look is the detail in the jacket- it’s only a zipper but it makes a world of difference! I just stumbled across this blog and I love it! Keep up the good work.

      Cami, thanks much for your sweet comment. I love your blog, and just started following you back! Seriously, adore your style! xoxo
