OOTD - Denim and Lace

I apologize right off the bat for the terrible pictures. It was already dark out so I had to use my flash, which never looks good. I attempted to snazz them up a little bit with a photo editor to help with the bad coloring. Also, I had my husband take them,which I knew might be regrettable. One time, I asked him to take pictures of Easter and I wound up with 20 crooked pictures of my dog's shadow on the lawn. But I don't think he did too bad with these.

This is a really great transitional outfit from summer to fall. I get tons of compliments on this lace maxi dress and it is currently one of my favorite pieces in my wardrobe. I am wearing it as much as possible before it gets too cold! I just got this cropped denim jacket from Forever 21 to wear over my summer dresses and it was a great deal. The cropped look is good for me since I am short and I have a classic case of "Mettille Torso." Which, means my legs are short and my torso is uncomfortably long. I'm really liking the maxi dress and cropped jacket combo because it makes my short frame look almost statuesque.

And the shoes...You might be seeing these shoes a lot because I tend not to buy a lot of shoes or jewelry. It's not that I don't love them, because I do, I just use up all my money on clothes before I get to accessories. I'm trying to work on it though! Anyway, these shoes are new and quite loverly. They are the perfect staple shoe I was looking for when starting my fall clothes shopping. I do have my eye on a few pairs of shoes with fun colors and prints though! Let's see if I can make that happen! I hope you liked my first OOTD!


  1. Awwww he did a great job!! That maxi is so gorgeous! I've never seen a lace maxi before!!

    1. It was an online exclusive at Torrid and I loved it so much that I saved for a month to get it!

  2. It's like a twist on my lace and burlap wedding, I like your style, lady.

  3. P.s. you know how much I loved your maxi, probably my favorite thing everrrrrr, but is it just a little pink in real life? Either way it's fabulous!
