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?

Lace and Tulle for the New Year
First of all - HAPPY NEW YEAR my dear readers! InTheThickofIt has grown like CRAZY this year. Thank you as always for the continued support and love.
Since moving in with S, I have really had to edit my closet as I have much less space than in my old place. I started to feel like I was wearing the same 10 things over and over again - and while there’s absolutely nothing wrong with that, I just started to feel like I was in a bit of a rut on many levels. So on new year’s eve, I decided to do a little shopping for some new outfits.
I’ve been looking for a new skirt and this sweet layered skirt from forever 21+ just called my name. It’s 3 layers - a black fitted layer with a layer of cream lace and then topped with a light pink tulle. It’s a little bit ballerina a little bit figure skater, which is why i was determined to toughen the look up a bit with my cropped striped sweater from H&M and my studded leather jacket. It’s a great look for a snowy winter january day, don’t you think?
