Mixing Textures: Comfy Sweater, Plaid, and Peek-A-Boo Lace

Hey Everyone,

I hope you are having a great weekend.  Lacey details are popping up everywhere and I could not help but bring out some older pieces from my closet. I’ve always loved the look of lace and I was looking forward to it’s big come back. For many years, I have kept some of my favorite lace adorn pieces and was not willing to let them go just yet. I  was very glad to see lace grace the runways in the past couple of seasons and the online catalog pictures of Zara, Topshop, and Asos.

I picked up this lace skirt many years ago in college. I loved the skirt’s crinkled satin look and peek-a-boo lace hemline. I paired this delicate piece with the rigid structure of the plaid shirt and added a soft comfy sweater. I love mixing textures to get a great finished look.  winterwhite

Booming Fall Colors: 3.1 Phillip Lim Sweater

Hey Everyone,
Hope you are having a wonderful Monday. I was super excited about the 3.1 Phillip Lim for Target collection that came out in September. I got a chance to pick up a couple of items to add to my wardrobe. There were some things that I wish I had gotten like the leopard print sweater, the gray Boom sweatshirt as well as a bag which were all on my wishlist. I did get a chance to pick up the number one item on my wishlist which was the Boom sweater dress that I converted into a sweater as well as the Sparkle and Floral peplum tops.

The first time I saw the 3.1 Phillip Lim Ka-Pow Pullover a couple of seasons back I instantly fell in love. When I found out about his collaboration with Target this past summer, I was super excited about seeing the different pieces from the collection. I was glad that the BOOM sweater dress was reminiscent of his Ka-Pow pullover.  I’m going to be honest, I personally didn’t like it as a sweater dress and it was overwhelming on my frame so I decided to modify it by taking off the skirt of the dress and use it as a sweater instead. It looks better don’t you think?

I am definitely enjoying my trip to New England. I hope you are enjoying the Fall as much as I am and if you don’t have an opportunity to see the changing colors, definitely plan to take a trip to see all the foliage change colors. Thanks again for reading and take care.

XOXO,

Elle
