White Lace

23 August 2011











It really is no lie, boyfriends always have the funniest interpretations of the various
trend us gals are always trying. When I threw this lace cardigan on, Ryan immediately
said it reminded him of Robert Plant which I thought was totally hilarious. Silly boys...
they never understand! Anyways, I am really obsessed with these huge bell sleeves and
I cannot help by nonchalantly touch my hair/use my arms in any way to have fun
with these billowy sleeves. I can see myself layering this cardigan with chunky scarves
and lace up boots in the fall, but for now cut offs and a simple denim shirt works just fine.

Hope you all are having a wonderful Tuesday! It is 60 degrees today and I was able to
pull out my favorite vintage (polyester) blouse. Weather please stay this way for a little while!

Boys and style!

Learning not to always take my husband's view on my style too seriously has been an important process in my personal style journey for sure!

I adore the lace cardigan, very very sweet.

I've gotta get that cardigan. It's so pretty!!

The Jones said...

LOVE the way you styled this cardigan...the sleeves are great, and I can definitely see it moving through the seasons with a variety of different styling options. Boys ARE funny...my hubby recently told me I was wearing an "Egyptian princess" necklace when it's really this fancy statement piece that's gold lace.
