Date in Black Lace

IMG_6498I am a very modest dresser by my very nature. I often opt for full coverage blouses over strappy tanks, fitted jeans rather than mini dresses but every once in a while, showing some leg is just necessary.

So for one of our first dates as a married couple, I wanted to wow my husband (eek – I still get giddy every time I call him that). A mix of sweet and sexy with black-on-black lace and leather did exactly that.

This romper is straight up dreamy! I can’t wait to style it with a chunky knit and thigh-high boots come fall. Did I mention it is only $21! It is one-size, but it fits more like a small.

Now, I’ve had a serious love affair with faux leather jackets for quite some time. I have an arsenal of over a dozen now and wear them in frequent rotation. I was religious to Express ‘Minus The Leather’ Jackets for years, but recently decided to reevaluate when their most recent styles were $150. I think that is a good price for a quality jacket, but for an Express one? Not so convinced. I decided to broaden my horizons and try another options and came across this Devlin one at Nordstrom. I am in love. The quilted details make it seem elevated and the material itself just seems a bit more substantial.
