Embrace Lace

(Top & Skirt by 1&20 Blackbirds, Scalloped Tights by ASOS, Bag by Marc by Marc Jacobs, Shoes by Spurr, Watch by Michael Kors, Necklace & Ring by Peeptoe and Ring by Bardot).

Lovely in Lace
-------------------------------------------
Today I tapped into the lace trend I think we will be seeing a lot over the upcoming warmer seasons. No longer reserved for wedding dresses (and the wedding night), this semi-transparent material is always undeniably sexy, and if worn correctly can exude sophistication. I paired up the black lace with this pink flowy skirt to create a more sweet and innocent look, but if you want to edge it up a bit I recommend pairing it with either bright bold colours or play with textures by pairing it with leather or even metallic fabrics.

I also bought my first pair of lace up boots! I've always wanted a pair but doubted whether I am 'edgy' enough to pull them off. But I decided to bite the bullet and clicked the mouse. I think they are officially my tallest heel - there was a point where I rolled my ankle and feared some prolonged shoe related injury, but in the end I prevailed limp-free! My final verdict?
 Love em'!

  1. You're so beautiful! Oh my!
    I always experience the ankle-rolling business every time I wear sky-high heels, I'm always so afraid that I'm walking in heels incorrectly haha.
    That aside, I'm loving this outfit and the lace trend, so perfect!

  18. You look great. Everything about this outfit exudes class and trend. I love those boots and I wish I could buy some lace up boots. It's too bad that my surroundings wouldn't really agree with that purchase (rain and college).

  70. You totally rocked those booties! I've been eying the studded version for a while but wasn't sure how they actually translate on, so you've sold me! Love the delicate lace top teamed with the peachy billowy skirt - girlie but not pink girlie, if you get my drift!
