I love to pair feminine lace with a more masculine fabric like leather or denim. There is nothing more feminine than an ivory lace dress. There is nothing less feminine than slouchy ripped boyfriend jeans. Throw said dress over aforementioned jeans and it is a match made in sartorial heaven.
I styled this particular outfit on a very cool day back in July, but I felt it was more appropriately shared during a warm spell in October. And yesterday, we had temperatures around 70 degrees, so the timing seems just right. Today is rainy and cooler and I was fully prepared to photograph my very autumnal outfit that I am donning today. But alas, my remote is refusing to connect to my iPhone so photographs of today’s outfit seem like an impossible dream. So thank goodness for old, previously unshared outfit photos.
And today’s outfit is a cute one, too. In fact, the man with the tattooed face whom I see everyday at school drop off approached me this morning and said, “I really like the way you dress. You have amazing style.” Wow. I was kind of floored. Now I like tattoos. In fact, I have quite a few myself. But not on my face. And I have to admit that I have indeed judged the man with the tattooed face. Perhaps I should not have been so quick to judge. Because he seemed like a very nice man. He spoke kindly and gently and his compliment seemed of the most sincere and genuine nature. So shame on me. And to the man with the tattooed face, I apologize for passing judgment. I also thank you for your kind words and for reminding me to keep my judgments in check.
But back to my denim and lace outfit here. Everything has been in my closet for quite some time. So a great example that you can shop your closet and create on-trend pairings even with old pieces. The only thing purchased recently were my tassel sandals which I scored on huge clearance from Target at the end of summer.

How do you feel about pairing contrasting pieces together to create more interest in an outfit? But more importantly, have you passed judgment on someone a little too quickly and then found yourself eating those words? It definitely was a lesson for me today and one I need to remember more consistently.
Thank you to everyone who stops by every week and joins my link up! I really appreciate your loyalty and support. I love seeing what you are all wearing, sharing, and discussing each week. And now here are your two favorites from last week:
Jodie, Nancy, and Charlotte of Jodie’s Touch of Style are reader favorites for the third time in four weeks! You know why? Because these ladies rock! Check out how brilliantly they have styled their Ankle Boots with Short Trousers. Also, the printed booties they are showcasing are so fabulous!
How cute are Lana’s peep toe booties for the transition into fall?!
Apologies from the edge,
