I'm always a fan of some good lace, but I've actually never paired a lace top with a lace bottom. I love that the lace in the top is more of a delicate, eyelash lace, while the lace in the skirt is thicker and more stand-out. Both of these colors are perfect for summer, but just as appropriate into the fall - -especially this firey red skirt. I think it would look just as fab paired with a soft knit (like cashmere) and some tan ankle boots.

I was going to pair this look with a denim jacket, but then I remembered I had this rad olive-green utility jacket that also happened to be from BR. It was a match made in heaven. Especially after I adorned it with some of my fave vintage pieces -- this leather belt w/ a pop of leopard, and these fun brooches. Style tip: if you ever feel like your jacket or blazer (or even your sweater) needs a little extra something, try adding some pins. You can add one or two, or go crazy like I did and add a handful. ;) The look is quirky and fun, and definitely makes a statement.

P.S. If you don't already own a utility jacket, you MUST get one! It's such a closet staple, and perfect year-round, but it's especially great for layering in the fall and winter months. I always opt for olive-green (always love a good military-vibe and green is my fave color), but these jackets are usually are available in navy blues and khaki colors too!

  1. Oh wow! These brooches were the right thing to put on the jacket, they bring this fabulous outfit to a whole another level! Wow! You've been rocking with your outfits like never before! :D

  2. Love this jacket so much, it's fabulous! The red dress looks amazing with it. Love the color combo! Happy Friday :)
