bits of black

dressing a little out of my comfort zone with my bra showing and so much of my back exposed. but what are cute lacy bras made for if not to peek out a little?

i got this rose bralette for my honeymoon last summer and ended up wearing it all the time, i had to go back and get a couple more. all of my friends who i recommended it to also love it. looking for a good lacy bra, go to Urban Outfitters (and order up a size, i got a medium).

i got these heels from Nordstrom Rack in the Spring and had yet to wear them. i am glad i saved them for this outfit. the teal metallic shoe with the bright yellow bag is a perfect match.
i love how architectural the heel is on these pumps. i feel its a little Givenchy-esque. 

hey, these could be a look for less. 
i rarely wear lip color (because my husband wont kiss me when i have it on- what guy does want a woman's lip color on their lips?) but i thought this hint of raspberry was the perfect beauty touch. 
if only my bun were perfectly centered. i even looked at the back of my head in so many angles.

the breakdown:

with a long baggy tank and baggy boyfriend jeans i needed a touch of sexiness to not look sloppy. the black lace bralette was a bold statement that the outfit needed. the structured reverse braid helped keep the look clean. the necklace i'm wearing is new, i think that is what drove this outfit to begin with. it is from Southern Couture, you've heard be talk about that boutique in this post. the gold heel of my shoes made a great connection with the necklace and i just loved the bright yellow of this clutch. the knot in my tank was an afterthought. i had tucked the front of my shirt in a little and then i tucked the side of it in and wasn't feeling it. i love the knot with these boyfriend jeans. i have this tank in another color worn a completely different way, the bohemian in my comes out :)
