Lookbook: Little Lace Riding Hood


The weather in March was driving me insane. One week was beautiful and sunny, and the next week was cold and rainy. But I believe April will bring in a long-awaited spring, don't you think?This is before I went for a wine and cheese lunch at the Mountain Winery. The wine was decent, but the bartender was cool and the venue was very pretty, so I will most likely find myself heading back there in the summer when they play concerts.(btw, freezing my ass off without the hooded cardi...the things we do for outfit posts)These are the Steve Madden booties that I mentioned in my Bridging the Gap outfit post. They started at a price of $190 but I got them for $40 from DSW. True story, bro.These photos were taken on a trail, and I thought the grittiness of the trail would work well with this outfit. I realize that if you go through my lookbook posts on the Muse, I don't think you'd be able to really classify my style. That's probably because I like a bit of everything. 

My motto with clothes: If it looks good on me, then I'll rock it.
It really doesn't matter if it's polka dots, cut outs, dresses, high-low skirts or wedges. 
So happy I finally got a La Mer watch! I've wanted one for a long time now.

Gifted hooded wrap cardigan ~ Foreign Exchange top ~ Go Jane lace pants ~ Steve Madden booties ~ La Mer wrap watch ~ Starfish cuff ~ Filthy Magic ring & shoulder chain

*fyi: this top is one of the only things I actually liked from Foreign Exchange. I was pretty disappointed with the fabric once the clothing I ordered arrived. So if you ever see me partnering with Foreign Exchange on the Muse, then you'll know that I've officially sold out. But don't worry because homie don't play that.
