Happy First Day of Spring WIW

Happy first day of Spring! Heading out for Lunch to celebrate and it’s a pretty day. I’m testing out my new style Name Gritty Glamour with a mauve pink floral embroidered dress, pearl gray combat boots, charcoal leather cuff and a white and hematite phone bag. I’ve ordered this chain link hematite necklace which I think would add some Grit to most outfits. Changes or additions?

pink, floaty dress, hair, embroidery, lace

leather, chains, boots

    Certainly Gritty Glamorous.  I love your pearl boots and necklace.  You might watch for a pearl grey bag to blend with the boots. Happy Spring!

    Thanks Joy, I have one and it’s a backpack style — will try it with this. Thank you!

    Love how the gritty elements add oomph to the gorgeous dress and give the whole outfit even more impact.

    Gritty Glamour, achieved! 

    Lana, I love your alluring necklines with the pretty lace peeking through :)

    I LOVE it when you wear patterns with white that match your hair. Punchy!

    Please send warm Spring weather over so that I can wear my new pretty dresses too....

    Love, and yes, gritty glamour! This reminds me of Bijou's style--you look lovely and ready for springtime brunch! I love the cuff and boots paired with this floaty dress.

  • Aurore replied 2 years ago

    I really love how the boots bookend you hair, and complement the embroidery of the dress. It makes the whole outfit very stylish and coherent. Gritty Glamour fabness!

    Happy Spring to you! Very pretty! Love your accessories ❤️ I like hematite jewelry too! Does Free People clothing launder well? I am looking at a few of their pieces :)

  • Lana replied 2 years ago

    Nikki, this one does, but I’m sure it depends on the item. I do find their photos online often don’t match the actual irl colors.

    Thanks Aurore, Jonesy, Rachylou, Angie, ChristelJ!
    Off to check out Bijou’s posts.

    Nikki: I have some Free People and can vouch for their sweats and sweatshirts standing up well to laundry. I don’t have any of the dresses or other tops.

    Thanks, Lana and cat2 :)

    Gorgeous gritty glamour. Mixing the floaty dress with the combat boots and metal captures your descriptor perfectly.

    Wonderful look all together - love the matching lipstick ;) ! 
    The bag w/chains and chain earrings - perfectly compliment each other.

    Lana, this is a wonderful spring outfit and the new necklace will be the perfect finishing touch!

  • replied 2 years ago

    Wow! Love that dress! It has sort of a sari vibe :)

  • RobinF replied 2 years ago

    I love this outfit. The boots are a perfect foil to that pretty, floaty dress.

  • Allora replied 2 years ago

    I LOVE your leather cuff!
    Do you happen to have the name of the Etsy shop where you purchased it? It is right up my style alley :-). 

  • Lana replied 2 years ago

    Thank you everyone! 

    Allora, this was from LexLaneDesigns on Etsy, but I’m sorry to say the shop appears to be closed at the moment.  Maybe a google image search would reveal something similar?

    How effectively this all comes together.

  • Zaeobi replied 2 years ago

    You look like you were born to wear stompy boots with floaty dresses. And white hair :)
