Wardrobe Must Haves: My Timeless Classics…

As mentioned, I believe every girl needs a few key pieces in her wardrobe, timeless classics for easy wear day-to-day. My must-haves include chic but comfortable skinny jeans, a tailored plaid button down shirt (I adore this one with stud details from Ellie Clothing – they have the cutest things, a massive range and it’s all super affordable!), classic black sunglasses are eternally chic (my go-to’s are this pair from Prada, they seem to look fabulous on everyone!) and as always, my Marc by Marc Jacobs handbag works with everything (ladies, if you’re going to invest in one handbag – this is it!).

Add a tan belt, black patent heels and pave crystal earrings (currently on sale, 40% off!)… you’re good to go! Oh and I always recommend a vibrant lipstick to add a feminine touch, I read this one from YSL is Kourtney Kardashian’s favorite – and it quickly became mine, I adore the orange-red hue.

I’d love to know, what are some of your day-to-day wardrobe must-haves?

STYLE Q&A WITH LACEY…

What is your go-to look?  Currently in the frozen tundra of Illinois my uniform is an over-sized, cable knit sweater (favorite colors: black, cream, gray, navy, pink) paired with black leggings and always a bold, chunky statement necklace. If I want to dress it up, black booties or a pop of color in heels. If it’s a casual look, brown leather riding boots. Then loose, tousled curls to top it off.

Which fashion trend are you currently loving?  I will be the first to say I am slow to jump on trends, so whether these are ‘trends’ or not I am obsessing over: dark, vampy lips, over-sized floppy felt hats, subtle hints of sequins, faux fur, anything and everything in the color oxblood.

What inspired you to start your blog?  The inspiration was my closet, my favorite room. I realized I had all these pieces of clothing, jewelry and accessories – and had nothing to show for it. I decided to start taking pictures and documenting my outfits, hoping it could give others inspiration in their own daily wardrobe. I think it will be fun to look back in a few years and see how my style has evolved and changed!

Name three beauty products you couldn’t live without:  Wet n’ Wild Brow PencilCovergirl Outlast Stay Fabulous 3-in-1 Foundation (Concealer, Primer, Foundation) and any kind of bold lipstick. I don’t discriminate on brands.

How would you describe your style?  My style can change on a daily basis, but overall I would like to think it is chic yet sassy, with a mixture of masculine and feminine pieces.
