Pretty Lace and Green Baubles...

Lace is one of those types of materials that really tricky to style. It's either way too sexy for casual everyday wear and runs the risk of appearing sleazy if you know what I mean... OR it can run the risk of looking like grandma's favorite thrift store tablecloth.

And I'm not fond of either of those visuals.

As a matter of fact, lace wasn't even close to my radar until recently when I found some gorgeous lace dresses on the clearance rack at Target.

Then there was this....
Lace Shirt-gifted
I fell in love with this pretty lace shirt when my Mother gave it to me for Christmas. I immediately began thinking of ways to style it.

Being that it fit a little large on me I decided to layer it with one of my favorite thrifted blazers.

Of course since we are in the middle of March and the weather is still a bit cold I layered the lace over a plaid button up.

Button Up-Thrifted
I love this time of year because I get to layer many pieces and get the maximum use out of my wardrobe.

Layering also allows me the option of not having to wear a heavy coat when shopping or hanging out with friends.


To keep up with the St. Patrick's Day festivities I threw on some green skinnies (last styled here). If you haven't noticed by now, I love playing with color. These androgynous colors went so well together. I'm definitely thinking of more ways to pair the two shades.

This look wouldn't have been complete without my super favorite riding boots. I wear them with everything. I'm sure I will wear them well into the Spring season so be prepared to be totally sick of them by Springs end.


What's that one piece of clothing in your closet that you just can't get enough of?

I can't wait to hear from you.
Thanks for reading.
