Metallics & Lace

Hi! :)

As promised, here is my outfit for the Blogger's Night Out at the Ritz Carlton Tysons Corner on Sunday! 

Trench: H&M (stolen borrowed from my sister, similar in red) Top: Nordstrom Rack (similar for $13!) Skirt: H&M ($15 on clearance! similar, in love with this one) Belt: Loft (sold out, love this option) Shoes: Diana (from Tokyo, see similar options here) Clutch: Aldo (old, similar for $25) Necklace & Bangle: Raided from mom's jewelry box (close up of necklace here) Watch: Michael Kors Earrings: TJ Maxx

I originally put this outfit on for Valentine's Day but thought it looked a little too summer-y (and it was like 30 degrees outside) so I opted for a darker color that day. But I do love the lace on lace, the crisp white skirt, and the contrasting metallics of silver cap toes & clutch and the gold/rose gold details on my belt, shirt buttons, & jewelry.

I wanted to take pictures outside because it was SUCH a beautiful day on Sunday! But I, of course, took forever getting ready and was scared we were going to be late so we ended up taking some indoor shots after the event ended. I am happy with how the quality of the pictures came out! :)

I was so happy when I found this skirt at H&M's winter clearance sale more than a month ago. Luckily it was the last one in my size and fit like a glove! It'll be the perfect skirt to pair with pastels, florals, neutrals, and more this summer! It'll even be an appropriate item to wear to work (now I just need a bright pink blazer... how amazing would that look?!?)

Tonight I am off to SXSW in Austin... super excited! It'll be my first ever music festival and since I had no freaking idea what to wear I used this as my guide for some outfit inspiration! Can't wait to share pictures when I get back!

Love love love,
