Last week I shared some thoughts on incorporating lingerie into your daily style. This is a new venture for me, so I am sharing my experiences with this on the blog.
I tried out look#2 (you can read more on that here) last night.
My general thoughts on this outfit are:
I wore this jumpsuit and teddy combo out for dinner and drinks with my girlfriends last night, and I don’t think anyone even noticed this was lingerie!! I was a little nervous at first, because I am typically a more conservative person when it comes to how I dress. I sent out this photo to three of my closet friends, asking if it was “too much,” to which they gave me mixed reviews. I decided to just go for it and I honestly felt more comfortable wearing this than most of the clothes I wear on a daily basis.
Logistically speaking, I think you could go one of two ways with this particular outfit. When I ordered this jumpsuit, it was pictured on the model with a bralette underneath the mesh top. I think this is a darling option, especially if you are feeling super great about your body or if the weather is nice. However, I think for winter and for those of us still holding onto a few holiday pounds, the teddy is a nice alternative because it provides a little extra coverage in the torso area. It is also the slightly more conservative option…which I really like. Oh! And I really loved the lace and mesh combo.
With that, I am really feeling inspired to try out more looks like this & get more daily wear from my lingerie closet. I owe a great deal of gratitude to my sweet friend K. who fully embraces the “less is more” notion in her fashion choices. She really has given me so much courage to wear whatever I feel most comfortable in, regardless of what anyone thinks.
My lovely friend also has great taste, and deserves a style inspiration shout out!
I had to share her outfit from brunch today. She wore this gorgeous mesh bodysuit with metallic gold applique and paired it with black leggings. I think this is just such an elegant look (see more style inspiration like this here under look#3).
This bodysuit really is such a statement piece. Every time she wears it she is simply the most well dressed person in the room.
Unfortunately the boutique where she purchased this amazing piece closed this past October, but I still had to share…
Until next time ❤
This winter I have been loving the fact that mesh, tulle, velvet, and lace have made a huge style come-back. There is something oh so feminine about these delicate, and often sheer, fabrics. I also have seen an opportunity in this “less is more” notion to incorporate lingerie into my every day style! Doing so in a classy manner is, of course, tricky. However, I have found that, with a little effort, it can be done ❤
Here is some style inspiration for my favorite looks this winter:
1). Instead of a crop top, pair a cute bustier with a chic blazer and high waist pants (which will complement a high waist matching panty). This velvet bustier is perfect for the holidays and even comes in three colors (pictured here: Ensign, and Ruby Wine or Black)!
I think this is such a simple and classic look. Tie it together with timeless Mary Janes (these are very comfortable, by the way), a playful choker, and you’re ready to go!

2). I have been seeing mesh everywhere lately! I recently ordered this “semi-sheer mesh jumpsuit” and was surprised at how much I liked it (especially for the price!) Online it is pictured on the model with an adorable bralette. I like this, but as a slightly more conservative alternative, I tried it with a lace teddy and loved it!
I think these two teddies are perfect to pair with this particular jumpsuit, as they both have an open, strappy back that really adds to the look. The high neck teddy comes in six different colors, if you want to get really creative! In my opinion any of these combinations would be perfect. I just love the layering of lace and mesh. It is so feminine and subtly sexy!

3). Another thing I have been loving about winter fashion (in the lingerie world) are long sleeve bodysuits! These can really be paired with anything. I have worn them under a little black dress and with jeans. However, my favorite combination thus far has been to pair them with a little black skirt! Again this is such a simple look, but it is a great way to get daily wear out of your lingerie ❤
