Sunshine and Lace

Ahhhh, lace.  So pretty, so sweet, so timeless, so romantic.  I have to say that I am awfully glad to see lace making a comeback.  And am especially loving all of the cute lace and crochet shorts, flowy tops, and crops-some bohemian, some more fashion forward, there is a style of lace out there for everyone. 

And with so many options and price points to choose from, I have been on the hunt for a perfect lace top for a while and finally found a beautiful cream lace cropped tank at Macy’s a few weeks ago (post to come).  So I was surprised when I was recently in Forever21 and found another lace tank that was not only longer, but the color of sunshine and about 1/3 of the price.  And I knew instantly that even though it was lace (and yellow), it was a great basic that could work back to skirts, shorts, denim, and even colored denim. 

Yellow Lace Top:  Forever21

White Layering Tank:  H&M

Colored Skinnies:  Else by Joe’s Jeans exclusively for Macy’s

Sunglasses:  Calvin Klein via Macy’s Sunglass Hut

Bracelets:  Tiffany and Co., H&M, Macy’s, Thailand (yes, the country)

Watch:  Michael Kors via Nordstrom Rack

Color Block Platform Shoes:  ZigiSoho via DSW

If you haven’t already added a piece of lace to your summer wardrobe, I would highly recommend doing so.  Not only is it on trend right now, but lace is timeless and will most certainly keep making comebacks as the fashion trends cycle over the years.  I also wanted to point out that I did something I don’t normally do in this post-which is opt for a monochromatic look with my shoes instead of a complimentary, but different, pop of color.  While the yellow heel and the turquoise platform are a shade or two darker than my top and jeans, they are in the same color family, and therefore work back to each other.  The white pop on the shoe is also the perfect way to tie it all together.  All in all, I am really pleased with how the look turned out and will definitely be making more monochromatic choices in the future-yet another fun and different way to change things up a bit!

    1. I really love lace shorts, but haven’t been able to find the pair I’m looking for yet. I feel like most of the ones I find that I like are too short. But once I find a pair, I will definitely do a post about them. But I do I think they seem like a perfect summer item-and love the option to be able to dress up in shorts and not just dresses. 🙂
