Pretty in Pink

Happy Monday, readers! It’s another start to a beautiful and sunny week here in Winona before we head into the pre-holiday weekend! For me, a staple during these hot summer months are maxi skirts. They are feminine, fun, and perfect to keep you cool while you look absolutely adorable in them.

For today’s post, this pleated maxi skirt definitely had to be featured. Its lightweight, flowing, and soft fabric not only help me remain neutral with temperature, it is perfect for any occasion. When the wind catches it, it billows out and looks so beautiful, making me feel absolutely flawless in it. It’s perfect for twirling! Continue reading

Summer Blooms

Happy Tuesday, readers! I hope all of your weeks have been good so far. My week has been filled with work, but thankfully I get to end this week (hopefully) going to Steamboat Days, which is this carnival/festival that happens here annually in Winona.

For me, one of the best things about summer (aside from the beach, sun, and break from school) is the beautiful flowers that seem to bloom every year. No matter where I turn, I see color from the most beautiful of flowers. S0, with that in mind, I decided to feature one of my favorite special occasion outfits that features none other than a beautiful floral pattern.

Pattern Mixing

Hello, readers! In the past, my wardrobe has been very cut-and-dry, with no gray areas in terms of what I would or wouldn’t wear. I used to never ever considering wearing things that involved more than one print, or opposite colors; it just never seemed right to me. This year, however, one of the biggest trends has been pattern mixing. So, being the usual follower of trends, I decided to go out on a limb and try this trend, and I’m so glad I did! Whether it’s polka dots, geo prints, animal prints, stripes, or any other patterns you can think of, patter mixing can prove to be a fun and fashionable twist to any wardrobe.

For today’s post, I decided to mix florals with stripes.

Pattern Play

Hello, readers! Well, it looks like it’s officially fall outside, and I am behind on my posts. No matter how meticulously I planned out my posts, I always seem to have a surplus of them! After these next few outfit posts, I promise that I will officially be on track and sharing with you my favorite fall looks and pieces!

Today, I decided to feature a dress of mine that I love from Pacsun. Continue reading

Neon Tribal

Hello “Lilacs&Lace” readers! For the sake of moving into the fall season, I will be posting more frequently this week so that all of my summer outfits are featured without it being the middle of fall! I tend to stock pile posts, so that I’m prepared, but this past summer, I seemed to space my outfit posts out a little too far, so that is why it is October and I’m still posting my last few summer posts! I promise soon I will be done with my summer outfit posts, and you’ll get to see my fabulous fall outfits!

For today’s post, I decided to feature an outfit with a crop top that I just had to buy when I saw it in the store. Continue reading

Black Floral Romper

Hello, “Lilacs&Lace” readers and followers! Today, instead of the usual “Sunday Sales” (which I only do once in a while, due to my schedule and the fact that sales last usually over a few weeks), I decided to feature another outfit post that just so happens to be one of my favorite outfits that I’ve posted here on the blog!

How cute is this romper?! Seriously, as you know, I’m not the biggest romper fan (in fact, I only have two in my closet), due to my body shape and pickiness when it comes to clothes and how they fit on my hourglass figure, but this one was irresistible. Continue reading

The Date Part II w/ VS PINK

Today, I’m sharing the second part of my two-part feature of my favorite bra, the push up from Victoria’s Secret PINK’s “The Date” Collection. As I mentioned earlier, I love this bra because of the sexy back and the vibrant colors. Plus, I’m a sucker for lace.

So, with that being said, I returned to Putnam Trail in Eau Claire to shoot the second outfit incorporating this bra! Continue reading

Black & Leopard

Today for my post, I wanted to post about one of my favorite prints: Leopard. I don’t know what it is, but I’ve recently become really attracted to anything leopard print.

I now even own many leopard print clothes, some checks, and a wallet in leopard print! It is just such a fun, exotic, sexy print. Speaking of sexy, that’s exactly how I felt in this outfit. Continue reading
