Dots + Arrows

Hello, readers! I’m sorry for the radio silence and the lack of “Wednesday Wants” post yesterday- I had work until 10 and by the time I got back to my room, I was pretty tired and decided to give myself a break from the blog posts for a night. For today’s post, I am featuring a cardigan that I am so happy to have in my closet!

The pattern of it has sharp shapes, such as diamonds, dots, and arrows. The pattern, along with the embroidered back, really pulls some attention to the outfit. Continue reading

Pink Diamonds

Hello, readers! It’s Friday-yay! I hope everyone’s week went well, and I’m happy to say that it is officially the start of my month-long Winter Break! As I’ve probably explained before, I’m not like other fashion bloggers, with a SO or photographer who lives with/near them and is in contact with them for daily photoshoots. In fact, my friend who does my photography/editing for my blog lives in Eau Claire (my hometown) and goes to UWEC while I’m here in Winona, attending WSU. So, with the hour and a half distance between us on top of school and work schedules, it is obvious to say that we cannot unfortunately meet up every day to do daily outfit shoots. Whenever I’m home, we get together at least for a day and shoot a series of outfits to kind of “stock up” for the coming weeks where I won’t be returning home. I try to space posts out so that I don’t daily post something and run out of the outfits quickly within a week, so that’s why I don’t post daily and am a bit behind on posts. It should be better this summer, since I’m moving back home for financial and personal reasons! So, if you ever wonder why it’s in the middle of winter, let’s say, and my posts are of fall outfits with no snow in sight, that’s why. In a way, I kind of like it this way, because it sets me apart from other fashion bloggers… Anyway, on to the post!

For this outfit, I paired a shirt I had gifted to me by one of my sorority sisters (thanks again!) with a pair of newer, super comfy high-waisted jeggings I have.  Continue reading

Lace Hem

Hello, readers! How is everyone’s week going? Mine’s going decent, just a little stressed because next week is finals week here at WSU! But that’s okay, because once I’m done studying and doing my exams, it’s time for a break from school for a whole month! Oh, the joys of college.

Moving on, for today’s post I decided to share the last outfit I wore on the weekend of my birthday. I’ve never really been a big orange person, but I’m so glad I bought this shirt! It features some adorable floral leggings, cognac riding boots, and an orange sweater with a precious lace hem (my favorite!).  Continue reading

Hello, “Lilacs&Lace” readers! I hope you all have been having a great week and will also have an awesome weekend! For today’s post, I wanted to feature one of my favorite shirts from Target!

I know, some of you may think it’s so weird to buy clothes at Target, but I love it. They have a lot of good deals and adorable clothes. Plus, in a town as small as Winona, the only clothing stores they have are JCPenney and Maurice’s, so there’s not a lot of places for a blogger on a budget can go. Continue reading
