OUTFIT: Lace and leather

It's been getting chilly here in Pittsburgh!  Last week I had to break out the blazer to wear over my lace Express top.  I guess I shouldn't be so surprised that it's getting cold.  It's the end of October already!  I can't believe it.  Lace has always been a little too girly for me but once I added the leather boots I feel like it added just enough edge to the outfit.

Another slightly depressing thing about it being the end of the month....  I turn 30 on Wednesday!  Yuck!  My husband says I'm not allowed to lay in bed and cry all day with a bottle of wine, so I guess we will go out to eat instead. haha!  Is there anyone else out there in the dirty 30 club??

Anyway, back to the outfit!  The blazer is REALLY old from Guess.  I honestly don't remember where I got the boots and they are so old that the logo wore off so I can't even look.  All I know is that they are the comfiest heel boots ever.  I will be sad when I have to retire them soon.

All of my accessaries are from Charming Charlie.  Seriously, isn't that place the greatest?!?! 

...and unfortunately I didn't notice that part of the necklace flipped until I loaded the pictures on my computer... and I was too lazy to retake them. LOL!

Do you like pairing leather with lace?  Or am I just crazy?! haha!

  3. Oh girl, 30 is so YOUNG! And 30s are a great time of life. More $$ and more wisdom than your 20s but your looks haven't faded too much. LOL. And speaking of looks, I LOVE this lace top! I tried it on in another color but it didn't fit me quite right, unfortunately! I especially love this contrast version and it looks great paired with your blazer and accessories. Enjoy your birthday and celebrate!

  5. Thanks so much Gina!! I'm starting to look forward to being 30 in a couple days. I feel like people don't take you quite as seriously in your 20s so I'm looking forward to my more "mature" age. lol! Or at least that's what I'm telling myself! haha!!

  7. I could get lost in Charming Charlies, whenever I need accessories, I go there first! Leather and lace is a perfect pairing if you ask me, edgy and feminine all in one!
