Leather x Lace

Springtime temps call for cutoffs and booties...

{ zara lace top - similar here & here // diy 7 for all mankind cut-offs - similar here & here  // zara combination jacket // vince camuto booties (on sale!) // rebecca minkoff mini mac

I spotted this Zara jacket last month, didn't buy it and, of course, couldn't stop thinking about all the ways I wanted to wear it. Thankfully it was still there when I returned last weekend! I'm totally going through a leather phase at the moment.  There's something about mixing leather details with girly pieces (like this look) that I'm really drawn to. A little feminine touch never hurts!

Have an old pair of jeans with an outdated silhouette but love they way they fit your booty? Turn 'em into cut-offs! Next time I make a pair, I'll make sure to share my how-to but it's really pretty simple... a ruler, pen and scissors do the trick + after a few washes they look perfectly worn.

Look for a few more ways to style a lace shirt coming in February! One of my new year's resolutions is to shop my closet more and stay on a style budget.

  1. I actually have a pair of old 7's that I might try that with! I am also pretty jealous of your weather - it's a blizzard here today! :)
