Happy Wednesday! I’ve been super busy lately; trying to manage auditions, modeling jobs, and being a mother and wife all at once. So my apologies for being out of touch lately with my blogging. I will try to not let it happen again. 🙂
Today, I want to talk about what I like to call “lacing detail”! Lace-up has been really popular since early Fall last year. I’ve always been a huge fan of lacing details since high school, so I’m super happy that this trend has made a comeback!
You can spot lace-up details from shoes to bags, from corset belts to pants. I’ve seen it everywhere on sweaters, dresses, and blouses like the one I’m wearing here.
In this post, I’m wearing this Victorian-inspired striped blouse with lacing on the front from Zara. What I love most about this blouse is the simplicity of the design with the touch of contrasting black ribbon lacing. The lace-up detail made the blouse more trendy, and youthful.
I always believe it’s not what you wear that achieves a certain look, but more about HOW you wear or style it. For example, for this outfit, I tucked the blouse in to achieve a more stylish and stronger look. I paired the blouse with leather leggings, threw on a pair of knee-high leather boots, and finished it off with a black leather belt.
To add a bit attitude, I put on a darker shade of lipstick, had a thicker winged eyeliner, and a put my hair up in a high ponytail to give off a little grunge feel. As you can see, it’s all about the HOW, and not about the what.
So, what do you think? Do you like this look? To all my mom readers- just because we are moms, that doesn’t mean we have to dress like a mom all the time, lol. Mixing up your wardrobe from time to time can be refreshing, plus- it’s super fun! Try it sometime and let me know how it goes in the comments!
Always With LOVE,
