Texture + Tone

10.14.2014

Forever 21 multi-patterned zippered sweater, Supemuse lace skirt (also seen here), Hue socks, Mossimo hat, Mini Crossbody bag c/o Kelsi Dagger BKOld Hollywood and Scosha rings, Jean-Michel Cazabat tweed booties (also seen here). Shot by Isaac Lacey.


Sweater weather has officially arrived, and to prep I've been searching for a few standout knits to add to my collection. If you can believe it, I found the one above at Forever 21, and was immediately drawn to its multi-colored weave, neutral tones and mixed textures that gave it a slight, colorblocked effect. Concentrating on its different textures, I decided to combine the knit with a lace skirt and some tweed heels and ankle socks, then played up the neutral tones in the look with a tan bag and hat. The result? One of my most favorite Fall looks to date.

Enough about clothes though, let's talk about life! If you follow me on Instagram you might have seen that I've taken off to Italy for the week, which means I'm currently writing this post from Verona, where we'll be staying for two days before heading to the Northern town of Bolzano for our friends' wedding this weekend. (What is it with me and weddings lately?) Needless to say, I can't wait to share some of my travel pics with you. We spent the day in Venice yesterday and got some beautiful shots, and I'm pretty sure overall I'm just 100% happier when in a foreign country. 

Any big plans in your books this weekend?

  8. From your floppy hat to those fabulous tweed booties...this truly is a perfect look for autumn, dear Lauren!! The mixed-media sweater from Forever 21 was a great find...and I love how that cool 3D ring you're wearing on your right hand echoes the scalloped hem of your lace skirt!! :)
