Lace Jacket, Abstract Romper and Loafer Wedges

#2 - "Arsenic and Old Lace"
LACE JACKET - Forever 21
ABSTRACT FLORAL ROMPER - Target (exact)
BROWN BELT - Forever 21
7-IN-1 - Heavenly Treasures (exact)
WOODEN BRACELET - Heavenly Treasures
ZEBRA EARRINGS - Heavenly Treasures
BRONZE LOAFER WEDGES - Steve Madden (Thrifted)


Yesterday Polka Dots took Princess Sparkles to see "Kung Fu Panda 2."  That evening, the normally "girly" Sparkles suddenly turned into a kicking, punching, fighting machine.  She was going around saying "a-ya" as she threw herself all over the place.  She also had serious attitude to match her moves.

Today is "Everybody Everywear" and since the theme was "lace," I decided to wear my lace jacket which I paired with an abstract/floral romper I got in the clearance section of Target for $10!  I know, I'm ridiculous about my Target purchases, but I can't help myself.  I love their clearance section!!!  I'm also wearing these cute Steve Madden loafer wedges I got at the thrift store for $8 as well as some Heavenly Treasures accessories.

I love lace.  It's so much fun and it looks great with not-so-girly pieces like ripped jeans, leather and menswear.  I also love a romper because while it's girly like a dress, it's actually shorts.  So if you feel like it, you can kick and punch in it and no one will see your goodies!

I never thought I would say this, but I want a romper. Yours is awesome! Love the lace cardi over it. The whole ensemble is delightfully textural.

You are one hott Mamma! Cute outfit! I love lace too :)

Gracey said...

Oh, Fighting Sparkles is just adorable. I love that photo.

Love this outfit too. I've been thinking I might need some wedge loafers (well, not need, but you know what I mean) and these are fabulous. Even the romper is fabulous and I'm not a romper kind of girl.

So cute! How the heck do you pee in one of those romper get ups? I love the jacket. I used to have one......can't see to find it. Probably buried in my closet from hell!

Claire, Are you also saying, "a-ya"? Cute post. I'm seeing lots of rompers around...looks cute on you! I am crazy about Target, too! I have just uploaded my photos for my lace post; I hope to get it up tonight. Debbie http://thriftygirlvintage.com

This loafer wedges are gorgeous! And for only $8? That is beyond impressive :)

Very cute outfit. I'd try rompers but my contours are more Yo Gabba Gabba and I'm afraid the elastic on top would slip. Girly girl Princess Sparkles fighting!--good practice for combatting her little tiger sister.

Truly amazing! I'm usually not a fan of rompers (sorry! I really can't help it), but the fact that this one has different coordinating prints for the top and bottom has made me rethink that position. The lace jacket works well too!

Loafer wedges? That's some crazy stuff right there!

Holy cuteness, lady! You are totally rocking that romper!

My daughter has been into kicks and punches lately. I think it's more her dad's influence with Star Wars. Grrr...

Come take a look inside A Working Mom's Closet

Love the mixes of patterns and lace. What cool loafer wedges as well.
My son went to see that movie as well. He has been in that mood since seeing the 1st movie though and loves the song 'kung fu fighting...'

Mrs. J said...

I'm happy to see an outfit featuring the cute lace jacket. I love rompers too, but I haven't put one on yet. Great outfit!! :)

I'm so happy your obsessed with Target like me. They have the best sale racks almost as good as Thrift stores.

stylefyles said...

wow, I REALLY love this outfit. The contrasting patterns work so well together and the colors are just so pretty! Great outfit!!!

Mrs. J said...

Claire, I just read your comment! I can't believe you found a Calypso dress for only $4. I need to check my local thrift store or see if Target has any pieces left.

Marta said...

I love that the romper actually looks like separates - it keeps it a bit more contemporary and mature and less like something for your daughter.
