A Collab: Leather & Lace

For my October collab, Grace and I decided to pair up this month and bring you two different ways to wear leather and lace. As usual are looks are totally different! I chose black and white. While Grace plays with black and tan.


Black lace is always a fun way to mix things up if you’re getting bored of the traditional white.


I figure most girls have a white lace dress so this look should be easy to re-create!


I love this outfit and all but mostly I’m just so stoked on this new area we found to shoot. We headed here for an editorial shoot for a local musical festival. I knew I would re-use the spot. I mean you get the city skyline, bridge and ziggurat building all in one spot!


My current favorite lipstick if Ruby Woo by Mac! This stuff stays on ALLLLL day and has a beautiful matte finish.

How cute is she?! My mom’s side of the family grew up in Minnesota. That’s what connected us to chat on IG 🙂



I asked Grace 5 questions:

Q1. What do you love about leather and lace?
A1: I love the “attitude” that leather brings to a lacey, feminine look! The combination always makes me think of the Queen of England riding around town on some Harley Davidson motorcycle before she heads off to afternoon tea…and who can pass up a combination like that?!
Q2. What do you love about blogging?
A2: Blogging has been such a fun way to document my little life in Minneapolis and to connect with other people from all over the place!
Q3. Are there any current trends that you’re loving?
A3: The color grey! Grey sweaters, grey jeans, grey dresses…grey can be such a great and versatile color for the fall!
Q4. What is one of your “go-to” wardrobe pieces in your closet?
A4:My go-to look is a comfy pair of jeans and a cozy sweater. We’re all about keeping cozy, here in Minneapolis. 😉
Q5. What are you looking forward to this upcoming fall?
A5: This fall, I’m looking forward to our annual trip to the apple orchard. There are a whole lot of apple donuts and pies and pastries that are just begging to be consumed!

  1. A Collab: Leather & Lace With Haley and Grace -

    […] Hey there, friends! I’ve teamed up with the sweet Haley from Colour Me Classic to bring you two fun, leather & lace looks! Haley has such a rockin’ sense of style {I mean her hair, am I right?! Hearts for eyes} and her blog is always so inspiring. We both opted for a lace dress with a leather jacket {great minds, ya know}, but leather these days has been appearing in so many fun colors {see here, and here, and here}! Mixing a little leather with a little lace can be such a fun way to bring some “edge” to a feminine look. I did a little Q&A with Haley below! And be sure to check out my answers to these questions over on her blog here! […]
