Monochromatic: Lace & Leather
Our mornings and evenings here in Austin are getting cooler, while our days are staying fairly warm. The weather is nice, making it easy for me to mix and match more of my pieces together that normally stay separate for most of the year. Hi Mr. Leather Jacket, I would like to introduce you to Mrs. Lacey Tank and vice versa. Oh wait, you don’t personify your clothing… yeah, me either… *insert winky face emoji*
I really enjoy outfits, such as this one, because I can easily switch up my look by swapping out a few accessories. I can wear this all day, and well into the evening. Not to mention, the classic staple that is the leather jacket. To me, and my wardrobe, a leather jacket is an elegant, timeless piece that provides an effortless look with a big impact.
The simple, white lacey tank can be styled in a number of different ways, and can conform to whatever style you are going for. This piece – classic in its own right – brings forth a happy, vibrant mood. Yet paired with the all black leather jacket, it brings a whole new tone to this outfit.
Once fall rolls around, I am intentional at wearing my black jeans more often. Nothing like a solid pair of jeans to tie an outfit together, and I mean that figuratively and literally. Get it? Cause they are solid black colored jeans. Ehh… it wasn’t that punny. To me, jeans – whatever solid color they may be – add a sense of depth to an outfit in a way that holds everything together. Jeans provide so much leeway. They allow you to be as bold and daring as you want to be in every aspect of your look. Even though this outfit was pretty tame, keeping to the monochromatic theme, these are some of my favorite jeans, and have provided much balance to my wardrobe over the years.
Easily some of my favorite pieces individually, but when combined they make one hella cute look.
