Lace on Lace // Bougainvillea Garden

Top: Forever 21 (similar here, and this tank here)      Skirt: H&M      Shoes: Wills London      Necklace: J. Crew {similar}     Sunglasses: SICKY Eyewear    Bag: 88  

This blush pink lace crop top is something I bought with no particular vision in mind, I just knew I loved it (unfortunately it's no longer available, but I linked two similar ones above).  If you know me, you know that blush pink is my favorite color.  I knew I wanted to work this into some kind of formal outfit with a long skirt, and I thought, why not pair it with more lace?

I'm a huge fan of mixing prints, especially the same prints, so lace on lace seemed fair game.  I wanted to add a little sparkle and something to draw attention away from the cami underneath, so I layered on this floral lattice J. Crew necklace and just added on simple extras: my favorite 88 vegan bag, my favorite pair of shoes (from Wills Vegan Shoes), and my new go-to tort sunglasses.

I'm just starting to plan some holiday posts that will be coming soon to LMHC in the next two months, and I'm so excited to share them with you.  Hope everyone has had a wonderful weekend so far!

Autumn Orchards // Green Plaid + Giveaway

 Bag: Matt & Nat      Watch: JORD ℅       Skirt: J. Crew (similar)    Cardigan: Madewell (similar)     Boots: Hunter    Bracelet: Kristine Lily        Sunglasses: SICKY Eyewear    Belt: H&M     Tights: Hue

When fall rolls around, so does my favorite season of fashion.  I love breaking out my tall boots, warm knits, plaid, and rich colors.  I love playing with layering during this season and winter, and my layering trick year round is to nail it on the accessories that you pair with the clothes.  You can never go wrong with tall boots, for example (I'm wearing my trusty black Hunter boots), and I also added on my Matt & Nat 'Mini Mitsuko' bag in black.  Matt & Nat makes the most gorgeous minimalistic vegan bags!

I love the look of a button down under a sweater and one of my favorite layering techniques is rolling the sleeve of the button down over the sleeve of the sweater and adding a few things to my wrist to tie the outfit together.  I'm wearing my favorite bracelet from Kristine Lily and this gorgeous Zebrawood and Champagne women's watch from JORD.  Their have such a unique watch collection: their pieces are made of wood like this one and they have a variety of men's and women's pieces.  I was honestly stunned with the quality when I opened it (you may have seen my unboxing on my Instagram story- @juliacmazzucato)  A watch is such a smart piece and one of my favorite fall accessories, and these ones are definitely worth checking out.

Lady in Red // Bow Back Dress

Soprano Bow Back Fit and Flare Dress {for red, similar here and here}  Necklace: J. Crew {similar}     Bag: 88       Shoes: LC Lauren Conrad      Bracelets: Kate Spade      Lips: Tarte in "Bae" {available here}

As the holiday season approaches, I love getting dressed up in something fancy for a little taste of that holiday spirit.  You might remember this dress from my Things I Wish I'd Bought post two months ago: I managed to find it in the size I needed, and after a few nip-and-tuck alterations it was perfect!  I just love a festive red dress, and while this exact Soprano fit and flare is still available on Nordstrom in gorgeous blue, you can find an almost identical one by Alfred Sung here, or, if you're willing to splurge, a luxurious Emporio Armani here.

Since the back of the dress commands so much attention, you don't need a ton of accessories for a dress like this, but the front was relatively simple so I added my favorite floral lattice statement necklace from J. Crew for a little sparkle.  I also threw on my vegan leather Lauren Conrad heels and the Sophie ivory bag from 88.  And there's no look you can't make better with red lipstick- this Tarte shade is my signature that I use almost every day. 

What is your go-to holiday look?

Classic Stripes + Hydrangeas

 Dress: Banana Republic (similar)      Bag: Matt & Nat      Sunglasses: SICKY Eyewear ℅     Shoes: Wills London      Jacket: Old Navy    Lips: Tarte in "Bae" (available here)

I love stripes- they're one of the most versatile prints and they're such a classic in your closet.  This linen striped dress is one of my favorite pieces for when it's warmer out, which it definitely is right now in California (90 degree autumn weather!)  I love throwing my favorite jean jacket over a dress to transition it to fall and add in a relaxed, casual element.  

I wear sunglasses in probably 90% of my outfit posts on LMHC, so I was very excited when SICKY Eyewear reached out to me to featuring their gorgeous sunglasses.  I'm wearing the Amber S6 in Tortoise.  I love tortoiseshell sunglasses- they are so versatile and classic, and I love the bold shape of these and the classic gold arms.

Fun fact: SICKY was created by John Hildebrand, designed in Malibu and crafted in Japan.  Now, that name sounded familiar to me...  Turns out John is the brother of Madison Hildebrand, who stars on Million Dollar Listing LA, my favorite reality TV show!

Happy Monday, loves!

Little Black {Lace} Dress

 Dress: J. Crew (similar)     Shoes: Wills London      Bag: Ted Baker     Bracelet: Kristine Lily      Glass Pearls: Vintage       Lips: Tarte in "Bae" (available here)

Wow, I've been kind of a crappy blogger lately.  I've never really had a post schedule, I just post when I have the time and try to do it every 3-5 days.  Lately it's been tight to find the time to write up a post and get it published, but I'm definitely going to move this up as a priority on my list and try to get more content out.  I love connecting with you guys and reading your comments is a highlight of my week.

Anyways, it's finally October and this is when I love to pull out both my autumn-wear and my holiday clothes.  This J. Crew lace LBD is one of those classic pieces that I love wearing to any kind of event year round, because it's so versatile.  I love the tiny detail of the scalloping on the sleeves.  I'm pairing it today with these gorgeous blue vegan suede block heels from Wills London.  I also own these in nude and black and they are my favorite pair of shoes in the world, so Will kindly sent over this color and I'm loving them!  I can't rave enough about how much I love Will's Vegan Shoes- the quality of these shoes are the best I've ever owned, including non-vegan designer shoes I used to wear.  Definitely give the line a browse, you'll thank me later!

This outfit is actually a fairly simplistic one- I just added on this floral fabric clutch from Ted Baker (my favorite store), simple jewelry, and my signature red lipstick.  This is my go-to holiday party look, and it never seems to fail.

Hope everyone has had a great week!
