Red Floral Romper

Hello readers! Thank you for joining me again at Lilacs & Lace after almost two years! It’s been a crazy busy two years, with me having my baby, changing jobs, and going through lifes ups and downs, but I’m back again! With that being said, I’m going to highlight one of my favorite pieces in my wardrobe: this gorgeous red romper!

Seeing Sunflowers

Fall, like every other season, signals change and transition. As summer turns to fall, we see the transition from the season of warmer weather and days spent at the beach, to the season coined “sweater weather”, with Mother Nature herself showing off her beauty by the changing leaves.

Aside from the changing colors of the leaves, one thing that fall certainly brings, are sunflowers. In peak season during the fall months, these flowers are the perfect fall staple. What is a better way to welcome the arrival of my favorite season than to be surrounded by sunflowers?!

A 4th of July Inspired Outfit

If any of you readers have been following me on social media (links below the post if you haven’t!), it would come to no surprise to you that I have had a rather busy past few months. For those of you who don’t know why it has been so busy, or don’t follow me on social media it is because of one reason: I’m pregnant! At 5 months along, you could say that life has been a huge change in direction for me lately, but that doesn’t mean that I’ll stop bringing you all blog posts! Today’s post happens to be 4th of July themed!

The 4th of July has always been a holiday where myself and fellow Americans take the time to celebrate our freedom and independence with barbecues, beaching, boating, fireworks, and even an alcoholic beverage or two (or more). Forgoing the alcohol this year, I decided to celebrate in my own way with this adorable red, white, and blue outfit!

Red Midi Skirt

As promised, this is my last winter style post of the year! In my last blog post, I mentioned that red is a consistent color theme in my style posts, and with today’s post, the theme of red continues! This time, I took to styling my trusted gray puff ball hat and red cardigan with a beautiful red midi skirt!

For this look, some other needed accessories I added were a matching red clutch, some adorable peep-toed booties, and my gray furry gloves. Continue reading

Red Ruffles

With the transition into another season, comes the last few of my winter style posts! In case you guys haven’t already noticed, red is a consistent color theme for me, especially in the winter months. For me, red is the perfect color to help you pop out from your surroundings, plus it is one of the few colors that really any one can pull off, while also adding some sexiness to the outfit. Today’s blog post features one of my most recent additions to my closet, which has a little bit of a fun and feminine twist to it: some puffy, ruffled sleeves!

I don’t know about you guys, but I have recently started to love some dramatic sleeves! This off-the-shoulder shirt instantly got my complete and undivided attention, due to its puffy, ruffled sleeves.  Continue reading

Winter Style: Red Cardigan

In these winter months in Minnesota (or, rather, “Minnesnowta”), the landscape and everything really gets covered in a layer of fluffy, white snow. The coming of the snow and the winter weather for me (and probably many other fashion bloggers) means that I have to switch out my spring/summer clothes to more thick, layering clothing. But, no matter how much time has gone by, my love for vibrant colors and patterns has never left. The outfit I am featuring in this post is no different!

Kinstone Megalithic Garden

Hello, readers! Long time, no see! I know this happens a lot with me, but I’m sorry for the lack of posts lately! With my tripod having broken and a busy schedule with finals (which are FINALLY over- thank god!) and work, it has been hard for me to find time to do more blog photoshoots and whatnot. But, I’m back! For today’s post, I’m throwing it back all the way to homecoming weekend, 2017, which happened all the way back in October. Though there were many activities and the like on the itinerary I made (yes, I am an uber planner), the place my bestie and photographer, Kenzie, and I were most excited to visit was Kinstone Megalitic Garden

LBD (“AHS: Coven” Style)

Hello, readers! It’s been a long time since I’ve been on the blog (I apologize- my life has been hectic with work and school lately), but I’m back now, AND I have a new blog post for you! img_1493.jpg

As I’m sure you all know, I am a huge fan of black. Black is such a good color that can complement any skin color, outfit, and body type. Though usually my outfit posts consist of pops of color and a lot of patterns, I like to throw in some black once in awhile. Not to mention, a fair amount of my wardrobe consists of black clothing! From coats, to shirts, to leggings, to dresses, I am sure you’ll find all kinds of black clothes in my closet.
