Sport and Lace Prep


OASAP street style blogger
Remember this lace dress that I dyed, cut, and reconstructed? It's been some time since I've worn it and given it fashion love without having to wear loads of layers combined, all due to colder climates. I decided to wear my lace with a sport jacket this time to give what would typically be a casual and sportier look, a bit more polish than normal.

The jacket is made of sweatshirt material, which also had a baseball patch of some sort, but I added my own crest patch atop, giving it a personal touch. I mean let's face it, I love sport, however I have not the slightest clue on what's happening in baseball at the moment! I just know that I like the jacket, the striped ribbing along the neckline, and tan colour ... that is all! For some reason, sporting my own fictitious team (crest embellished and all), seemed perfectly suitable!

Varsity jackets style lace DIY bloggers

How was your long weekend, did you do anything spectacular? To be honest, I probably had the best restful weekend. I ate well, and laughed so much that my abdomen had a full workout on its own, and even managed to get some sketching done in my handy "ideas" notebook. It was nice to be around friends and loved ones, especially when they bring nothing but smiles to your face!

In short: a grand way to start off a new week. I suppose, the only thing to top it off would be to go vintage shopping!

  1. What an unexpected but fabulous combination! I do remember that lace dress, lovely to see it again! x

    Looks gorgeous doll. I remember having a jacket like that, but black and white with a fake team on it, haha. I loved it. The sleeves were like suede, really soft feeling and the inside was like a sweatshirt, I wore it everywhere. Love the combination. I hope your week has started off great xx

  3. I never had a clue about baseball but the jacket rocks. I love that you added your own crest patch. Amazing classy and sporty mix and Iove lace dresses. Did you guys had a holiday over there? We didn't. Glad you enjoyed your long weekend. I made a walk through the pouring rain. Not my best idea :D

    That's a pretty lacy dress - clever the way you have reconstructed it and adding the cardi definitely gives it a casual look. We had a long weekend here too but yesterday it poured down from start to finish. A good excuse to be indoors shopping! Thank you so much for your lovely comment on my Istanbul post.

    I'm not into sports at all, but I do like this kind of jacket, yours in particular. It's light enough that it's not cumbersome at all. And love the lace dress, of course:)
