Summer Florals and “Weddiquette”

With the turn of the seasons and the official start of summer upon us, comes the excitement of summer weddings. Weddings give you a chance to witness loved ones pledge their love for each other, sealing it with a vow and the beginning of their lives together. They are my absolute favorite, because who doesn’t love an occasion filled with love, fun, dancing, drinking, and good food?! Also, at least speaking for myself, I love any occasion that I can use as an excuse to dress up for, which includes weddings! The first thing that people always ask is, “what will I wear?” Well, for me, the dress featured in this post is the PERFECT wedding attire!

For this wedding season, despite the spring months already coming and going, I find flowers fitting for such an occasion. In my opinion, flowers are appropriate no matter the time of year, and their symbolism of love and affection really fits when it comes to attending a wedding! Nothing beats a good pop of color, and do not let anyone else say otherwise! Weddings are supposed to be fun, so don’t be afraid to wear a fun, bold (but appropriate) dress!

Modern Day Cleopatra Vibes

I don’t know about you guys, but I am a history nerd. While I’m not the most knowledgeable in terms of Egyptian history, I have always been drawn to the idea of it. Pharaohs, cursed tombs, the pyramids, I love them all. When you think of Egypt, a lot of people think of one person: Cleopatra. For me, today’s outfit (which is definitely one of my favorites to ever grace the blog) gives me all the modern Cleopatra vibes. From the skirt’s pattern, to its length, to its shape, to my caged heels, I definitely felt like a modern day Cleopatra in this outfit!

Red Suede Dress

Hello, readers! So glad to finally be back making blog posts! It’s been a longggg winter here in Minnesota, but with it finally being May, the sun is out and the weather is warming up, and with that comes the blog posts once again!

For today’s post, I decided to feature this cute little number that I scored at Macy’s, during their HUGE closing sale (I got it for about $9!)! It’s so fun of a dress, and I’m so glad that it caught my eye last-second before I had almost given up my search for anything to buy while there shopping with family.

Disco Fever

2016 has come to an end, and with it, a new year and (hopefully) new opportunities for Lilacs&Lace. Some things that I know looking back on 2016 are that I have an even bigger vision for the blog this year, and that I have an even bigger appreciation of thrift stores. Why? Because I find dresses like the one featured in this post today! img_1197This dress was found in one of my many g0-to thrift stores, which I will be linking in the “Shop My Favorites” page! It is so comfy, with the silk slip below and the long sleeves. It’s nice and flowy too, so it is perfect as a casual dress, or one for an old-fashioned disco (because let’s be honest, that’s exactly what I thought of when seeing it!).  Continue reading

Regally Speaking

In case you haven’t notice, I love anything and everything involving royalty. Ever since I was young, I dreamed I was a princess. Even nowadays, I am obsessed with queens, particularly the history of monarchies. When given the opportunity to learn about them, I get all giddy, and maybe that’s just the history nerd in me, but I love it! With that in consideration, what is a better way to feel like a queen than wearing a beautiful high-collar shirt, with a ballroom-length skirt?!

Kaleidoscope

As summer finally seems to be transitioning to fall (though the weather doesn’t always follow that rule), I try to share the last pops of color as a goodbye to summer. For today’s post, I think this shirt really embodies my goal of that.

What is a better way than to have, well, a kaleidoscope of color in one shirt?!

Persephone

Well, now that it is officially fall here, I find myself holding onto the idea of summer. One way I know how to do that is with my wardrobe, especially when it comes to the blog. I like to get all the outfits in, before it grows too cold and snowy (as usual, I will be taking a small hiatus from the blog, but will be posting outfits less frequently). So, this outfit is the perfect representation of the spring and summer seasons, and serves as a good start to my goodbye to summer.

Introducing…

Hello, readers! For today, I have a very special post for you all. For me, and I’m sure for other bloggers, I love to have guests on my blog. It’s not only fun for me, but it gives you all a chance to meet people who are special to me and adds variety to my posts (after all, I don’t mind sharing the spotlight once in a while ;)). So, without further adieu…

A Colorful Palette

Hello readers! I’m back for another post! Before you all get into it, I know, radio silence sucks. I want to apologize, as I’ve been busy with work, school, sorority, and many personal issues that have pulled my attention away from the blog. But, not to fear! Mackenzie and I have continued on and have shot even more outfits, which we cannot wait to share with you!

I don’t know if you’ve noticed this, but I’m a huge fan of skirts, particularly skater skirts that have a lot of color. I noticed that, while it’s not officially fall yet, our summertime is almost over, which also means that my time to wear my summer wardrobe is also running out. With that in mind, I decided to introduce you all to this lovely skirt that has graced my wardrobe.
