Lovely Lace

With weather like this, how can you not take advantage of it? Although, internally my head wants sweaters and boots. I couldn't help but throw on this sweet lace peplum top from LOFT. I found it on sale a few months ago and was waiting for the right opportunity to wear it. I'm weird but it finally felt right to wear this now that it's officially fall and the weather is strangely warm this week. So I love this color (Go Gamecocks!) but I really struggled with how to style it. I didn't want to go in full Gamecock mode and throw on black jeans. I pair it with dark wash skinnies from Juicy Couture. Along with my new favorite flats and clutch from DSW. As I mentioned before, a blossoming trend is statement earrings. And although these earrings don't necessarily make a huge statement, I felt they complimented my other accessories well. The earrings are accompanied by a set of Seasonal Whispers and a wrap-around Alex and Ani bracelet. 

An important tip regarding this outfit has to do with textures. Why this outfit works? The textures are balanced. The colors are both light and dark. The shoes and the clutch help lighten the outfit up, which I feel is necessary. Contrasting colors can make an outfit, so always remember if you're styling a rather dark outfit and not loving it? Try to find some light accessories that compliment your outfit. Need some help? You know where to reach me!
