Today’s Friday Favs will be a little different because I will just be talking about one item in particular because I have been wearing them almost everyday. Drumroll please… this item is a lace bralette. I have quite a few different styles and colours in these and I LOVE wearing them. I wear them around the house, if I don’t feel like putting a real bra on (we’ve all been there) and I wear them when I’m going out. They are so comfy and add a super feminine touch to your outfit. It also looks really cute when it’s peaking through your top. All of mine are from Aerie because they seem to sell the largest product range. There are so many stores that sell lace bralettes so I suggest you grab some!
I’ll share a couple pictures of the ones I have but I’ll leave some links below on where to find some other really cute ones. The great thing about Aerie is that they sell these bralettes through every season and they come in so many colours, bright neons for summer and darker hues for fall/winter. They have some with padding for days where you are wearing it out or if you just want the support and ones without padding for lazy days or for smaller chested women.
Some other stores that sell too cute to be real bralettes are Aritzia, Urban Outfitters, Nasty Gal and so many more. Let me know where you have bought you’re fav bralettes from in the comment box below! Happy Friday!
Mixing patterns can be tricky to pull off, but once you get it, your outfit looks amazing. I went for more subtle pattern mixing, with a plaid flannel and leopard print sneakers. Since both pieces are at opposite ends of the body, nothing clashed. I also haven’t worn my wool hat in a while and I felt like throwing it on, one of those last minute decisions. Have a great Friday!!
Let me start off by saying that wearing these jeans on a day where the weather was like -100 degrees, was a horrible idea. I do it for the fashion and I’m sure many of you can relate..lol (especially my fellow Toronto/NYC bloggers).
Lately, I’ve been liking the idea of wearing oversized layers, and it helps when the weather is extremely cold. It’s fun to mix up patterns, fabrics and textures to create a look with depth. I’ve worn this tank and sweater combo before, with leather leggings, but this time I wanted a more grunge/loose/casual style. And what bottoms came to mind? BOYFRIEND JEANS.. DUH!! The bagginess of the jeans and the size of the rips played into the style I was going for. I had to throw on a hat or else I think my head was going to freeze off so I hope you like my ‘salt and pepper’ matching.. ha..ha…
I think I am starting to become a believer in the ‘casual Friday’ phenomenon that has hit the world by storm for the past however many years. Especially since I start my day at 7am and don’t get home until late afternoon, making me want to dress comfy and casual. So I’m saying to myself “Wow Lilly, you are such a hypocrite for saying this” and “Are you sure you want to do this?”. I always wanted to think that there shouldn’t be one day out of the week where you ditch your style instincts and basically wear your PJ’s out. Right?
I have always believed that you shouldn’t sacrifice style for comfort. Lets be real, sweatpants and a hoodie is not ‘your style’ and they will never be ‘a style’. These days, you can find fashion that screams your name and is still comfy, wow, what a world we live in! I wanted to show you some basic pieces you can style to create that ‘casual Friday’ vibe but still look put together and that you didn’t wake up 5 minutes before you had to leave (even if you did). The amazing thing about the items I chose is that you can mix and match them together. I hope you like this post and that it inspires your next casual Friday outfit!
