Sometimes I like going with a theme and running with it (rock, country, girly, sparkly). Other times the juxtaposition of pairing seemingly opposite elements together can be fun and super original!
That’s what I was going for when I mixed girly, feminine lace with strong military green. This cute strapless lace dress is from Fashion Rush. I love the strapless neckline – the low cut shows a lot of cleavage while making my arms and shoulders look thin. The fitted bodice shows off my figure, and the flared skirt is sweet and feminine. The sheer lace part is lined with a beige slip.
Often I wear this dress on its own, with girly accents like delicate gold sandals or ballet flats. Today, though, I opted for a stark contrast with this olive green military-cut jacket. Military styles and colors are super trendy this season, but I don’t often find much to pair this Fashion Rush jacket with. However, I think it adds a nice edge to the girly lace dress, and also brings the dress into fall (it’d simply be too cold to wear the dress alone now!).
To top the outfit off, I added dark brown leather ankle booties from Payless Shoesource. The dark, dull color pairs well with the olive green jacket. And nothing matches this country-ish beige white dress better than country boots!
