Summer Florals and “Weddiquette”

With the turn of the seasons and the official start of summer upon us, comes the excitement of summer weddings. Weddings give you a chance to witness loved ones pledge their love for each other, sealing it with a vow and the beginning of their lives together. They are my absolute favorite, because who doesn’t love an occasion filled with love, fun, dancing, drinking, and good food?! Also, at least speaking for myself, I love any occasion that I can use as an excuse to dress up for, which includes weddings! The first thing that people always ask is, “what will I wear?” Well, for me, the dress featured in this post is the PERFECT wedding attire!

For this wedding season, despite the spring months already coming and going, I find flowers fitting for such an occasion. In my opinion, flowers are appropriate no matter the time of year, and their symbolism of love and affection really fits when it comes to attending a wedding! Nothing beats a good pop of color, and do not let anyone else say otherwise! Weddings are supposed to be fun, so don’t be afraid to wear a fun, bold (but appropriate) dress!

Blue Lace With PINK

Hello, “Lilacs&Lace” readers/followers! I’m sorry for the hiatus between blog posts! Unfortunately, due to my work schedule, I have been too busy to return home to Eau Claire, which is where my friend (and amateur photographer) Mackenzie is. I take a lot of time planning these posts out, and a lot of effort goes into them. This planning includes: choosing the outfit, accessories, hairstyle, and makeup, as well as picking the days and locations of the shoots. The last part of the planning would be choosing the post’s name and date of when it will be posted. Because of the lack of posts I’ve had lined up, and the fact that I don’t have the time, money, or resources to post everyday, I planned these posts (along with the past posts) accordingly so they weren’t so clustered together, with weeks of very few posts going on.

Okay, now that we have that out of the way, on to the post! As you can tell by my blog’s name, I’m kind of a fan of lace. To me, lace has always been one of my go-to choices in clothing. I always said I should’ve been born earlier, and I think my taste in clothes really supports that theory. Continue reading

Pastels, Bolds, Spice, and Everything Nice!

Hello everyone! Thank you for your patience while I figured things out with “Lilacs&Lace”! There were a lot of difficulties with my last url, so ultimately, I decided to change it up and switch my blog site to WordPress! I have to say, I like it a lot better!

Speaking of liking it a lot better, how awesome was the weather last week?! It was perfect, sunny, and (almost) the temperature that I love! Anyway, moving on, I’ve been on the hunt for pastels ever since the beginning of winter, and I finally found the perfect jeans! Continue reading
