Leather, Lace and Tweed


leather, lace and tweed Hello Ladies

Hope everyone had a nice Valentine’s weekend. It was bitter cold here in Charlotte, so I got to wear my pink coat! I do have to say, as a red head, I do wear a fair amount of pink, and much of it has to do with one’s complexion.

The beauty of fall/winter is layering different textures and colors, lengths and styles. This baby pink lace top with the leather detailing on the sleeves, the collar and the buttons really spelled out romance and femininity to me, and I wanted to combine it with a different texture, tweed.

You all know i love the look of well made lace, so this top has the propensity to take me throughout the seasons. I decided to take my black peplum top, and create a layered look, with it almost taking the role of a vest. The pink lace with the black tweed is another combination of colors that may be unexpected, as pink is often paired with lighter colors, although I love it with black or grey. My peacoat just added another layer to the look, and helped to keep me warm in below freezing temperatures.

I know I haven’t been snowed in, but February pretty much makes me itch for spring. This is when I tend to start looking for spring trends, spring colors etc.

Have a Great Day,

Jess xo

    I realize this has been said a million times before, but that lace top is fantastic. It’s a great piece for almost every season, pairs well with various type of accessories… Plus I love the color. Great choice 😀

    I love the way you constructed this look. The layers are defined by different shapes and lovely textures. The blush lace adds a feminine touch to the hardness of the boots and tailoring. Love it.

I know I could learn from you since you have been blogging for 3 yrs and I really like your style too If not, that is ok too. An item of clothing really has to “speak to me” before I buy, and this top did !! Thanks so much xx

    There’s something so stylish and fashion forward about mixed textures. The lacy top is the perfect touch of femininity and the soft pink is elegant. I’d try top with a tweed pant and leather blazer.

    You look great.

    Great idea to wear your peplum top over the lace blouse, Jess! Because of our long cold season I very often restyle lighter clothes to wear them not only in summer.
    Your over the knee boots are fabulous!
