Trendy Lace

I must have Pinterest on the mind because just like Monday's post, this post was inspired by Pinterest.  I saw this pin a while ago & immediately fell in love with the Lace Top.  So, after pinning it, I followed the link to see if it would take me anywhere useful (i.e. where was it from, how much is it, etc).  Low & behold, it actually took me straight to the online store where it was a reasonable price & still in stock!  Don't you just get so frustrated when you follow a pin on Pinterest just to find out that the "link" goes nowhere, or that the top you just fell in love with is $268.00!  Erg!!!  Anyway, I felt like it must have been a sign from above that I was meant to have this top - so I ordered it!

The first time I wore it, I just mimicked the look from Pinterest, swapping out the jeans for modern leggings to dress it up a bit.  On the site where I ordered it, they also had a handful of pictures of additional ways to wear this top including tucking it into a skirt & wearing a chambray underneath it for a layered look!

Here's the original pin:


Here's the way I wore it:























Lace is definitely a fabric you will see a lot of for this Spring & Summer.  The pieces add richness to an outfit because of the heavy texture.  In addition to that, because they are typically a neutral color, lace pieces can very easily be worn in a wide variety of ways & can be mixed with other patterns or textures as well.  

Some other ways I've shown shown Lace in past posts:

Dressing up with leopard print




Lace & Tweed

Funny, I just realized I used the exact same Lace Top in both of those...what can I say, it's a great top!


Some of my other favorite ways to wear a Lace Top (via Pinterest):

♔ Jeans & Brocade Top

I did pick up a short sleeved Lace Top from Banana Republic Outlet this past weekend.  I had on jeans similar to this when I tried it on & it was fabulous...sweet & simple!


lavender jeans + denim shirt + lace

Of course, this is just the tip of the iceberg on the many ways you can wear Lace.  If you're looking to add a piece to your closet, you shouldn't have any trouble finding a piece you like...they are all over right now.  I've featured a few below, but again, just hit your favorite store & I'm guessing you'll find what you're looking for.

Don't be afraid to try Lace...if you need more ideas or help matching a piece, just let me know.  I'm always more than happy to throw in my two-cents! :-)  I should also add that I've only shown pieces in traditional ivory color, but there are plenty options out there in other colors...do what makes you happy!
