Fashion Thursday: Sarah’s leather and lace

Leather and lace — they’re the classic juxtaposition, paired so often that it’s pretty much cliche at this point. Just kind of screams “80s wannabe edgy.”  But a friend of mine came to a picnic and changed my mind about it a bit, with a lace dress/faux leather jacket combination. Somehow, the fact that it’s not an ivory or otherwise pastel lace dress makes all the difference in my eyes.

What’s the easiest way to make someone bashful? Tell them at a picnic “I like your outfit! Can I take a picture and post it?”

Blue lace makes it look a bit more grown-up, especially when accessorized with a friend's head.
