Leather & Lace: A Casual Look

Happy Wednesday, friends!  Today I’m talking about one of my favorite casual looks that involve both leather and lace.  Perfect combo, right?  This is a look that I didn’t necessarily plan, it just kind of happened once I received this sweater from my fiancé, Chris, as a Christmas present.  I’ve been eyeing this sweater for months…every time I walked through Nordstrom I saw it and had an instant “Heart-Eyed Emoji” look across my face and knew I had to have it one day.  I just couldn’t get over the bottom lace detail. 

And if you couldn’t tell, I’m a big fan of Nordstrom, it’s one of my favorite stores! I either go in there to shop, or to dine at their restaurant, Blue Stove (you must try it out if you haven’t already!).  Anyways… Once I received it, I tried it on with a pair of jeans and to be honest, it just didn’t look right, at least not with the dark denim pair that I was wearing.  So, I thought of wearing it with a pair of faux leather leggings that I got from Forever 21 awhile back.  Then, I threw on a few other items of clothing that I already had in my closet and fell in love with the look.  It’s edgy, but not too edgy.. Girly, but not too girly..You know what I mean?  Not to mention that it’s also super comfy and casual!  The perfect outfit for lunch, out on the town, errands, or where ever your little heart takes you : )<3 p="">

The leather jacket I’m wearing is also from Forever 21 and is of course faux leather.  The sunnies are H&M.  Shoes and handbag are Steve Madden.  I actually got the bag years ago so I don’t believe it’s available anymore, but if you do find it, please enlighten me : )  But can we talk about these shoes??

These Steve Madden, quilted leather slip-ons are officially my new favorite pair of shoes! These are another item that I was eyeing for months, but was hesitant on purchasing.  Once I received them, I thought to myself, “What was I waiting for?!”  They are comfortable, cute, and I wear them all the time.  Now, I’m even considering getting them in different colors!

So, there you have it!  The perfect combination of leather and lace. Don’t forget, you can shop this look by clicking on “Shop” located at the top of the header on my blog.  Questions? Comments? Feel free to leave a comment below! Thanks for reading and have a great day : )
