Leather + Lace ft. Charming Lucy

Happy Hump Day!! On Monday, you saw how I styled my leather and lace on Susan's blog, Charming Lucy. Today, I am excited to host Susan and have her share her spin on the trend! Susan is a wife, mom and has one of the biggest Christian hearts that I have ever encountered. Her megawatt smile and effortless, timeless style inspire me to be a little brighter every day! Take it away, chica!

Hey friends! I am Susan of the Charming Lucy blog! Today I am sharing my version of feminine/edgy with you! Leather and lace are polar opposites in the fabric world, but they are showing up styled together everywhere this season! It took me some time to add this mix into my wardrobe, because it is just simply out of my comfort zone. I had to really stretch myself to pull this off. I purchased a lace sweater from The Loft this fall and it has been hanging in my closet, begging to be worn. I decided to step out of my box and pair it with tailored velvet pants and a brown moto jacket. I have been wanting to try the black/brown trend too. So, while I was stepping completely out of my comfort zone, I decided to try this trend at the same time. And what do you know? I actually loved it! I finished the look with black booties and a strand of pearls. For those of us who may be hesitant to try the leather and lace trend, I suggest pairing lacy elements with a tailored piece, such as a jacket or slim pants. Layering your lace is also a great way to try the ladylike trend, while still having the coverage that makes you comfortable. IMG_1434 IMG_1433 IMG_1432 I put together another outfit idea that would be perfect for your holiday parties! I would love to try leather leggings! Have you tried them? How do you pair your feminine pieces with the edgy elements in your closet? If you have a favorite outfit, please share! Thank you to Stephanie for hosting me today! I hope you all enjoy a blessed holiday season with your loved ones! Thanks for stopping by!
