Thank you to everyone for your sweet comments on my feelings of being overwhelmed lately.  I was really tired and felt emotional when I was writing that post.  I decided to be a little more personal on the blog as one of my “blogger resolutions”.  Not sure why I picked that topic to start… I cut and paste that part multiple times before deciding to leave it and hit publish.  Anyhow, I appreciate your support and honesty.  We are all so busy in life, so I really appreciate YOU taking the time to come over here to my little space and reading!

Anyhow, I should be packing for my brother-in-law’s wedding, but I’m writing this post.  Maybe that’s why I don’t get everything done… lacking prioritizing/ time management skills.  I digress.

This crazy Texas weather is killing me!  Am I ready for Spring or still bundled up in layers?  At least I have the opportunity to wear Spring, Summer, and Winter pieces in my closet.

While it was beautiful and in the 70s, I was sporting some lace and denim.  Love the juxtaposition of feminine with the casualness of ripped denim.  BTW, these boyfriend jeans are now retired (unless I’m wearing a long jacket/duster like this) because the back seam has kind of split.  There wasn’t anything wrong with the fabrication of the jeans – I just wore them THAT MUCH!  I need to find any pair of boyfriend jeans STAT.  True Story.  I bought a pair of boyfriend jeans on sale at Anthropologie.  They are not as slim as these, maybe a little more relaxed you could say.  Mr. S said they look like “mom jeans”!  If anyone has a recommendations for “better” boyfriend jeans, please shout it out in the comments!

The Style Rx:  Be casual cool when you mix lace and denim.  White/Cream lace pairs perfectly with cognac/tobacco brown.  Black lace goes with… well anything!  I’m wearing a lace top and denim jeans, but you can totally reverse it.  A chambray shirt and lace skirt would be super cute!

We’re headed to Florida for the BIL’s wedding, and Mr. S and I are both in the wedding party!  What are y’all up to this weekend?  BTW, I haven’t forgotten to post about the ARTIS makeup brushes.  I had to refilm the video and I’m currently trying to edit, which takes me foreva!!

    Hope you have a great time at the wedding! :)

    I love the combo of lace and distressed denim – such a nice mash-up of textures. Hope you find a great replacement pair of jeans soon! It’s always so sad when we finally wear jeans into the ground!

    No recommendations for you sorry, I’m not tall enough to pull of boyfriend jeans so I don’t know of any good places to buy them.
