Hey everyone! Sorry I haven't posted for a while but I have been so busy with my new job. I'm under a lot of pressure to pass this state license exam and it is far from easy. Anyway, enough about work. Time to talk fashion. I'm super thrilled because I have recently become a lace fanatic. I'm totally obsessing over anything & everything lace! What makes it even better is that lace has really become a popular thing in fashion. Now I'm not saying it hasn't always been, but I'm seeing lace everywhere!
The first shirt I'm going to share with you is a lace, boxy, crop top. I'm head over heels in love with this top. It's perfect for summer because it light weight and breezy. It doesn't hug your body which is a bonus for a great summer time top! I can easily throw on a bikini top on under this and be ready to spend my day at the water park. I paired this adorable top with a big bold orangy necklace to really give it a POP. I also wore my favorite color lipstick (red) because what's more bold than wearing red with white?!
Now I have another lace crop top but this one is a lot different than my boxy one. This on is very very lightweight & is a little more seethrough than the other. I mean if your wearing a bandeau bra or even a swim top under it then it's fine. But wearing a bright colored bra under it and going out in public may be a little inappropriate. So just make sure that if your going to wear a bra, it should be a nude color or a natural skin tone. Anyway, this top is adorable because it has the little knot in front that gives it that different look. This is a little big on me so the pics may look weird.
I also bought this stunning mock neck lace shirt from TJ Maxx a couple months ago and I still love this shirt just as much as I did when I bought it. The neck line is probably my favorite part about it. Usually I can't find a cute mock neck dress or top that I actually like, but I think because it's lace that it makes it look more elegant than other mocks I've tried. I wouldn't typically wear this top out for water park activities because it would be to hot and it's just too nice. This is more of a night out top rather than a summer beachy top like the others. I would definitely style this top with more dressy accessories, like a sun hat or pearls.
Lastly, I want to show you this adorable lace hair accessory I bought from Forever21. I love to wear this with my lace mock neck top. I also wear it with just plain colored cocktail dresses ( lighter or neutral colors look best.) I usually look for blushes, champagnes, or light yellows to wear it with. Lace usually looks best with neutrals so when in doubt always go with neutrals.( I consider blushes and light pinks to be a nautral.)
There is such a thing as wearing too much lace so don't over kill it with lace top, shorts, hair accessories, and shoes. Be suttle when wearing lace with lace. There is no such thing as owning too much lace. So be sure to stock up on all of your lace necessities and share you awesome lace styles by hashtaging #dailyelliestyle on Instagram or any other social network! Can't wait to see!(:
