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

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!

Seeing Red

Hello, readers! Happy Monday! Today is an especially happy day for me for two reasons: 1) I start my new job (my second one) tonight, and 2) it is finally nice outside! I love the springtime, especially the well-needed Vitamin D that I’m about to receive this season and summer. I love the warm weather so much; I’m convinced that I was actually meant to live somewhere tropical, where the temperature never drops below 50 or 60 degrees.

Mint Condition

Hello, readers, and happy Tuesday! For me, it is a busy week, with Greek Week events every day this week, and then wrapping up this week with my favorite event: Greek Formal! I love being able to participate in some friendly competition with my fellow greeks, and then later come back together and celebrate this amazing greek community we have here at WSU!

Winter Florals

Hello my lovely readers! Only one more day until I am officially on my Spring Break! I plan on using my day off of class today to get some laundry and packing done, before shaking my stuff at Zumba with my bestie, and maybe even going out for some dinner.

For today’s post, I’m featuring an outfit that I’ll admit to having done a shoot for a few months ago. In every season, people have certain colors that come to mind whenever they think of them, such as pastels in spring.

For me, when I think of winter, I think of darker colors, such as navy blue and a blood orange. This shirt is clearly fitting for my hypothesized winter colors.

Hello, “Lilacs&Lace” readers and followers! I hope so far, your week is going great! Just remember, tomorrow is FRIDAY!

Leopard Love {Part 1}

Happy 2016, readers! I can’t believe that in March, “Lilacs&Lace” will be 1 year old and it will be my 3-year blogging anniversary in February! Though I’ve made frequent changes in blog sites, I definitely think that “Lilacs&Lace” is here to stay!

For today’s post, I decided to feature some adorable leopard print leggings paired with a leopard print trimmed anorak that I recently purchased as the first part of a two-part series! I love leopard print (it is a frequent part of my closet and outfits), it is so feminine and beautiful.I think it adds a little fun element to any outfit, and it could be worn for nearly any occasion!  Continue reading

Holiday Cheer

Hello, readers! I cannot believe 2016 is almost upon us- just about 30 more hours and we will be in a new year! With Christmas in the books, and me already planning to post tomorrow for NYE, I couldn’t let myself get away with not having posted a Christmas outfit post!

With that in mind, Mackenzie and I packed my car up and headed to Carson Park to shoot some pictures near the now nearly-frozen Half Moon Lake! Continue reading
