OFF TO THE LACES

When I think of something “lacing up” images of corsets and those awful jeans from Limited Too circa 2001 that laced up the front instead of having a normal button/zip fly. I pray y’all know what I’m referring to because I’m literally laughing to myself as I type this. Basically, anything with crisscross ties has been trashy for years, but go ahead and toss those images out the window and prepare to lace up your wardrobe. We’ve all seen these amazing Aquazzura flats for a while now (I literally dream about them), but this trend can definitely be applied to more than just shoes, as evidenced above! Elizabeth and James does it best, with both dresses in the top right. Whether you want to be super sexy in the black dress that channels Balmain, or a little more reserved in the burgundy, with the subtle laced detail at the waist, this trend can work so many different ways. I love that it adds an edge to any outfit and can fit in with any style!

Weekly Wishlist

Click to Shop!

Welcome back y’all, happy Tuesday! I hope everyone had a fantastic holiday weekend! The Weekly Wishlist is a day late, you could say I took Memorial Day off too. I’ve been a little romper-crazed lately. As y’all know, I recently acquired a floral Yumi Kim and I also recently just bought a plain black little number from BCBG. The Hawaiian shirt inspired romper above is next on my list, though I should probably chill out because really, how many rompers does one need? Moving on, I love horn-y (lol) jewelry, it’s so easy to incorporate into any wardrobe, and the price is definitely right on this necklace. The navy dress is from Elaine Turner and it will be mine once I secure funding. It’s so simple and easy, I love dresses that you can just throw on and go. I’ve been truly obsessed with these Aquazzura lace-up flats for too long, but the price tag is a bit of a deterrent for someone who just works retail. These flats from Boden offer a similar look plus they’re a color ripe for summer. They’d pair quite nicely with the Rory Beca print dress that I’ve also been eyeing. As you can probably tell, anything bright and summer-y is right up my alley these days. I actually pulled the trigger and ordered these Lisi Lerch tassel earrings. They’re huge and ridiculous and I cannot wait until they arrive at my doorstep! They’ll be a great addition to any outfit, as turquoise is basically a neutral this time of year. Lastly, I’ve been on the hunt for a simple, black cross-body. All my years of life and I never found one that was to my liking until now. It’s only $198 so I’ll probably end up taking the plunge with this guy (cue the wedding bells). I love the envelope style, plus it’s actually quite roomy for a cross-body bag! What’s on your wishlist this week?

Sterling Silver

SandlesSplendid, $78 (Find them in the widget below to shop!)

Hi y’all! If you follow me on Instagram (which you should do here), you saw that I picked up these little beauties last week! I really stepped on of my comfort zone with these, as I’ve said before I’m more of a golden girl, but these sandals were an impulse buy I don’t regret! Silver goes with just as much as gold, and adds a modern appeal to your look. SIDENOTE: you can wear gold and silver together y’all. Life is just too short. Anyway, I rounded up some other silver sandals I’ve been eyeing, check them out (and these pictured) in the neat lil widget below!

Weekly Wishlist: Go Army

Click to Shop!

Hello! Happy Monday! Today’s Weekly Wishlist centers around the military/utilitarian trend we’re seeing right now. I love this trend because it is really classic and can blend in with so many different styles. Basic items you are bound to already have in your closet will play well with this look. Take those green Theory georgette pants and top them with a white button down and flats – you’re good to go!  Also, give the tan cargo dress a chance. I recently purchased it along with literally five of my coworkers, all different heights and body types, and it flatters everyone! It’s been on repeat for some time now and I won’t be stopping anytime soon. Hope ya’ll have a great day and that this little post provides some Monday entertainment!
