How would you wear... a gray lace cardigan

07 July 26 - Gray Lace Cardigan (6)
For this "How would you wear...", a reader has asked me to make some outfits with a gray lace cardigan similar to the one in this picture. So, of course, I was more than happy to provide my humble suggestions!

1. Comfy Chic: First off, I made an outfit that is cute yet comfortable enough to go out shopping with some friends or family. The lace pattern of the cardigan will take all the attention when paired with a simple white dress. You can also add a pair of cute patterned flats to add some interest to the outfit. Finish off with accessories and a big comfy bag in a bright fun color and you're set to go!

2. Black & White with a POP: One of the best things about a white dress is its verstility! Try wearing the gray lace cardigan with a white dress once more, but this time add chic details that will instantly transform into a perfect night-time look! All you need to do is add black accessories like the black belt and black flower pin and then add a POP of color with some fabulous pumps, like these bright blue ones.

3. Romantic Feminism: When I think of lace, I think of a romantic feminine look. Inspired by this idea, I made this sweet ultra-feminine look! Try pairing the gray cardigan with a subtle beige dress and caramel boots. Beige looks great with this orange-red color, so try adding sweet details like this floral clutch, hair pin, and earrings. Finish this feminine look off by making a soft curly hair-do!

4. Summer Cutie: This gray lace cardigan would also look super cute when paired with a soft color palette like light blue with light pink. Try wearing a sweet and comfortable dress, like this light blue one and then add simple white wedges to make the look more summer appropriate. Last but not least, add cute accessories in light pink, like this purse and heart earrings.

5. A little Nautical: One of my favorite ways to wear this gray lace cardigan would be in a nautical inspired look! Try pairing it with a simple navy t-shirt and a full white skirt. Then add some cute striped shoes to give the outfit that nautical feel. To give the outfit a little more pizazz, try adding some POP's of yellow, like with this yellow purse and yellow earrings.

  9. I lost weight once i started taking Paxil. Strange?
    I guess I never know anyone else who requires Paxil, so
    I thought fat loss was standard. Don't start off getting it! It's been
    impossible for me to have off it! For my demands it functions, but you can find side effects.
    I've arrive to the conclusion I am "good", with much less side effects, on an incredibly lower dose (five mgrms). Most likely need to get it permanently.
