Hard shoes and lace tops
Oh a lace top…so much to say about something so dainty and yet so tough. Ahem.
I found this sea-foam green lace sweatshirt at target last week and just knew it would work with some other pieces in my closet. I love the mix of the pale color with a sweatshirt cut. My only wish is that it was a true crew-neck so I could wear it with a button-up collar shirt and have it look just the way I want it to.
I’m JUST SURE y’all are sick of these black skinny jeans, but I swear it’s 12 degrees today and I just can’t be bothered with anything else at the moment. So just know that I’m going to show you what I’m really wearing here - not just outfits that are exclusive for the blog. REALLY REAL here.
This scarf is one I found at dorothy perkins a few months ago and it looked so much like one I was obsessed over at topshop that was 3x the price, so of course I grabbed this one for myself.
Not too bad for a winter weekend look, eh?

Triangle Wedding at the Rothko Chapel, Houston TX
This weekend S and I attended the wedding of two amazingly beautiful and talented folks. The bride wore an avant garde gray/pink smoke pattern McQueen, the groom wore a skinny gray suit. They looked beautiful. And the ceremony was held at the Rothko Chapel - one of the loveliest spaces in Houston.
I knew that I needed to look really chic at this affair. S and I have been planning our outfits for months. I searched for months for the perfect necklace to wear - I debated getting a Zana Bayne harness, but after funds not allowing for it (and her being at fashion week the week I was going to order), I decided to look for something else. I searched on etsy and found this weird and beautiful brass body harness from seller LovMely. I showed it off on a simple ruched body-con dress from dorothy perkins. Basically I just wanted the necklace/harness to be the show stopper. And it was.
S wore a tailored slim-cut suit from H&M, Gucci shoes, patterned socks from Target. His body chain we found in the clearance bin of H&M, but it looks so weird and boutiquey.
