Denim + Lace


  
I was so excited when it got up to 60 degrees this week that I couldn't wait to dress for the spring-like weather (light layers & bare legs)!  I've been dying to wear this skirt since I bought it and instantly knew it would be perfect with some pastel pieces + my favorite denim jacket for a morning coffee date with my husband.  I have a feeling I'll be revisiting this lilac/mint/pink combo as we head into the new season.

 
 
 
 
What I'm wearing:
Tinseltown Denim Couture jacket (via TJ Maxx; similar), J. Crew sweater (on sale here), ELLE skirt (on sale here), c/o T+J Designs necklace (here) & cuff (on sale here), Me Too flats (similar here or here), The Limited clutch (similar here or here), gifted Ray-Ban wayfarers (similar), Lips: Revlon Just Bitten Kissable Sweetheart

Style said...

I am weeping a little because the weather is waaaay to cold here in England for just a jacket. However what I like about this what I'm wearing is how you're doing denim with colour. I'm so wedded to denim with denim, white or black that I forget about the other options. Lovely look!

Love this look! The sweater is such a beautiful color! I've been debating on getting some of that lipstain, and I think I've just been convinced. That color looks amazing on you...compliments your skin so well. :)

I love the mint with the lavender! I just got a lavender shirt from F21, similar to the one you purchased from J.crew and have been trying to figure out what I want to pair it with. Great outfit inspiration!
