Think Pink (Part 1)

Despite being the typical girly-girl, one thing I really have noticed is that there’s one color (aside from green, yellow, and orange) that my wardrobe really lacks: pink. Maybe it was I was tired of seeing it so much growing up (my room was filled with pink toys, decorations, etc), but either way, it seemed to disappear from my closet, being instead replaced with black and other darker colors. With these past few hot summer months and the changing of trends, I have found a new appreciation for pink, and I’m slowly incorporating more of it into my wardrobe again. So, for today’s post (which is part one of two parts), I decided to feature a cute pink dress, which I actually got as a hand-me-down from one of my besties, Marie!

Faux Leather & Lace Skirt

Happy Friday, readers! I’m back with another blog post and this time, it features two of my favorite fabrics: lace and pleather (fake leather). Though I’m sure you knew about my lace obsession (it’s in my blog’s name for a reason!), I am not so sure if you knew that I also love myself some faux leather every once in a while! So, with that in mind, for today’s post, I decided to don a nice sleeveless crop top shirt, and a cute little faux leather skirt (with a beautiful lace hem).

Though I caught myself on a lucky day where it was a bit cooler from the rain, this skirt is still perfect to wear on the warmer summer days, as long as it is not too thick and it fits the weather (i.e. not overdressing in faux leather leggings when it’s boiling hot outside).

Modern Day Cleopatra Vibes

I don’t know about you guys, but I am a history nerd. While I’m not the most knowledgeable in terms of Egyptian history, I have always been drawn to the idea of it. Pharaohs, cursed tombs, the pyramids, I love them all. When you think of Egypt, a lot of people think of one person: Cleopatra. For me, today’s outfit (which is definitely one of my favorites to ever grace the blog) gives me all the modern Cleopatra vibes. From the skirt’s pattern, to its length, to its shape, to my caged heels, I definitely felt like a modern day Cleopatra in this outfit!

Red Suede Dress

Hello, readers! So glad to finally be back making blog posts! It’s been a longggg winter here in Minnesota, but with it finally being May, the sun is out and the weather is warming up, and with that comes the blog posts once again!

For today’s post, I decided to feature this cute little number that I scored at Macy’s, during their HUGE closing sale (I got it for about $9!)! It’s so fun of a dress, and I’m so glad that it caught my eye last-second before I had almost given up my search for anything to buy while there shopping with family.

Disco Fever

2016 has come to an end, and with it, a new year and (hopefully) new opportunities for Lilacs&Lace. Some things that I know looking back on 2016 are that I have an even bigger vision for the blog this year, and that I have an even bigger appreciation of thrift stores. Why? Because I find dresses like the one featured in this post today! img_1197This dress was found in one of my many g0-to thrift stores, which I will be linking in the “Shop My Favorites” page! It is so comfy, with the silk slip below and the long sleeves. It’s nice and flowy too, so it is perfect as a casual dress, or one for an old-fashioned disco (because let’s be honest, that’s exactly what I thought of when seeing it!).  Continue reading

Kaleidoscope

As summer finally seems to be transitioning to fall (though the weather doesn’t always follow that rule), I try to share the last pops of color as a goodbye to summer. For today’s post, I think this shirt really embodies my goal of that.

What is a better way than to have, well, a kaleidoscope of color in one shirt?!

A Colorful Palette

Hello readers! I’m back for another post! Before you all get into it, I know, radio silence sucks. I want to apologize, as I’ve been busy with work, school, sorority, and many personal issues that have pulled my attention away from the blog. But, not to fear! Mackenzie and I have continued on and have shot even more outfits, which we cannot wait to share with you!

I don’t know if you’ve noticed this, but I’m a huge fan of skirts, particularly skater skirts that have a lot of color. I noticed that, while it’s not officially fall yet, our summertime is almost over, which also means that my time to wear my summer wardrobe is also running out. With that in mind, I decided to introduce you all to this lovely skirt that has graced my wardrobe.

Pleather Lasercut Skirt

What’s your favorite clothing item? A pair of distressed jeans, a comfy sweater, or maybe even a cute little crop top? Everyone has their favorite clothes, clothes that they can’t get enough of. For me, that would be dresses and skirts.

It’s no lie that I love to frolic around in skirts and dresses, which is why today’s post should be no surprise.  Continue reading
