Lace Up

Lace in still on trend for fall and winter this year, so I was really excited when Kiyonna sent me this beautiful Juliet Wrap Top. It is a fully functional wrap top, not a faux wrap, so I was able to adjust it perfectly for both work and dinner afterwards with my husband (wink,wink).


The lace detailing is so delicate and feminine, and I loved pairing it with this ponte skirt from Target. I think it will look equally great with a pair of skinny jeans and tall boots as well. On the hair front, I have had short hair for 10 days and I have probably worn it 10 different ways! You gotta love that! With my long hair, I wore it pretty much one way- down and curled, so it's nice to have some versatility. Who would have thought that short hair could be versatile?

Top- c/o Kiyonna
Skirt- Target
Shoes- Forever 21
Watch- Kohl's


I would love to find some old-fashioned "Gift of the Magi" style hair combs and some awesome head bands as well, just to add some interest into the hair. I am still getting used to fixing it every morning, but other than that I love it. All last week teachers where in and out of my room. "I heard you cut off all your hair, and I just had to come see it for myself!" Over and over again. At first I felt like I needed to explain myself and make excuses for why I did it- which now seems totally crazy.

Later this week, I'll be back with an awesome giveaway with Kiyonna- so lace up, it's going to be an exciting ride!

Needs cool hair combs!

You look absolutely stunning! You have such a beautiful face and look at those awesome brown eyes, which I haven't noticed so far. But now with the short cut, one couldn't ignore them any longer ;). Love the top and the skirt. So feminin!

Very delicate and pretty! You look so sweet, and your skin looks beautiful against the lace top.

I really love your hair styled like that! Makes me want to chop off mine, but I need to make sure it's not a knee-jerk reaction before I take the plunge :)

You are definitely growing into your haircut and you look wonderful! I love the pairing of the delicate lace with wine/burgandy. It really makes the blouse stand out.

Catie said...

Wowza, hot mama!! Love the entire look. You are stunning! I totally agree a headband would be soo cute. Happy Monday! =)

Julie Glass said...

I have to tell you, I LOVE your hair!!! I've been meaning to tell you, but it's just simply STUNNING!!! I've been experimenting with letting mine grow out this year, and after you cut yours, I am really tempted to cut it. By the way....after the Old Navy Skinny jeans posts from a few weeks ago..I bought some, and I'm rocking them today!!!!!
