L’s Festive Look of the Day: Strips of Licorice Top

imageimageimageimageimageimageHello Lovely Readers~

This weekend I got the chance to wear an adorably chic outfit featuring a gorgeous red and black top from our new favorite online retailer: Sugarlips. Two of our go-to colors are red and black, so when we stumbled upon this feminine blouse with lace detailing, we knew it would be just perfect to add into our wardrobe mix. With today’s look, I wanted to add a bit of a glamour dare: shorts with tights! My sister W never thought I could pull off this look when I sent her a text about my latest outfit ensemble idea.  But admittedly, she was pleasantly surprised when reviewing the film after our photo session.  I think the polka-dot tights add just the right touch of playfulness to keep this look from getting too risque.  I continued the layering trend with a black fur collared vest and my new black bow and rhinestone combo necklace (gotta love the prices of the newly revised J.Crew Factory website!!).  And of course, my trusty black wedges provided just enough height to lengthen the look.

Don’t forget to check out the Sugarlips “Strips of Licorice Blouse”. W will be styling it for us later this week, so come back to check out how she adds her spin to this timeless wardrobe piece.

Have a wonderful day!
