Quick Snap: Layered Lace

What I'm wearing:
*BCBG Cashmere V-neck Bell Sleeve Sweater
*H&M Lace Dress (similar here)
*Fleece-lined tights from Korea (similar here)
*Taryn Rose Red Patent Criss-Cross Mary Janes
*Forever 21 Necklace

This is one outfit that I really wish the photo came out better. I decided to layer one of my favorite soft sweaters over a lace dress that I really had not been reaching. I've only worn this H&M dress once before (see post) because it's a little hard to wear. It's short, and it has a front zipper that I don't love. But I did get this dress for 50% off, and I was determined to make it work. I actually got the idea to layer this when I was in an H&M the other day and picked up this adorable cropped sweater, and thought that it would look great layered over this dress. But then I told myself that the last thing I need is another sweater, so I talked myself out of it. Today I decided that this one would work just as well as the one from the store.

Currently I'm wearing a pair of fleece-lined tights and they are AMAZING! So warm and toasty. My lovely friend J bought them for me from Korea, where she is living and working right now. We had a little mini reunion with some high school girlfriends last night, and it was really great to catch up. J was also nice enough to bring me an adorable headband and some great face masks!

How cute is this? It's a little knit headband!

I am obsessed with cheap jewelry from F21. It's an addiction, I swear.

I am absolutely delighted that it is finally Friday. This week felt like it was an extra long week (especially because I am sick right now) so I am excited to just have a couple of days off. And then next week is a short week and then I have 10 glorious days off until the new year. Can't wait!! I promise to try to take some better photos this weekend.


  1. 10 days off until NY?! I am green with envy! Those red shoes really give your outfit a pop of color. I love the way you layered this outfit.

  2. I love the goodies you got from Korea. Makes me excited because I'm going there in two days!!! yay!!!

  3. Fleece lined tights? I need those.
    I love that the lace dress is white/cream colour. Also, your shoes, headband, and necklace are gorgeous. Basically, I love your whole outfit. That's it. Have a good weekend!


  4. This is beautiful! I love how you found a sweater you already owned too to make the dress work. I love your shiny crimson heels and that knitted headband is ridiculously adorable. A knit bow? YES, PLEASE.

  5. I need to try the layer over a dress!

    I love the headban. It is so cute

    Just Better Together

  6. I found a pair of fleece lined tights at Winners recently (our TJ Maxx-ish store). I am in LOVE and wish I could hunt down another pair.

    Love the way your re-mixed your lace dress!

  7. Cutest headband ever. I need to collect them, I feel like I'm always wearing the same one =/
