Rock n' Roll and a Giveaway! {now closed}

Hello hello! This past weekend the hubs and I took a day trip to the Rock n' Roll Hall of Fame. Naturally, I did what anyone would do- threw on my [p]leather pants, some red lipstick and acted like a rock start for the day.

::Pants LC for Kohls (On sale here), Lace Blazer c/o Karen Kane (here), Necklace Francesca's, Bracelets David Yurman Target Macys, Shoes Zara in LOVE with them (here), Blouse c/o Lulus.com sold out (similar here), Lipstick MAC Ruby Woo, Sunnies c/o Firmoo, Purse Michael Kors::
Does anyone else get frustrated when all the spring clothing lines hit and it's still like 10 degrees? I know I do. Due to the frustration (and mother nature) I wanted to showcase how a spring item can still be worn/styled even on some of the chilliest days. Although there is snow on the ground in these pictures, I didn't feel out of place at all due to the lace/leather contrast. I always felt like lace was a spring/summer staple only, but after pairing it with these pants and some cute shoes, I felt like it fit right in with the look I was going for. It seemed winter-ish enough, but I was still happy to be sporting some glimpses of spring. Plus, who doesn't love a little lace and [p]leather?

And since Karen Kane wants to help put some spring essentials in your closet, they are giving away $100 to KarenKane.com! Just enter below with the raffle copter and good luck!
