White Lace: Not Just for Brides

ootd-corallace-ankles

When I think of white lace, I usually think of wedding gowns. I can’t imagine I’m alone on that train. That was until I found this skirt last year at H&M. The cut is modern and pairing it with rich coral and black make it look really playful and pretty. Plus, it’s light-weight and breezy. Perfect for these hot, summer why-do-I-have-to-go-to-work days.

Speaking of summer and work, let’s talk about summer vacation. Remember how excited you used to get when we were kids and the last day of school was finally here? Then it was three months of sleeping in, hanging out at the pool and maybe doing summer reading (aka waiting until the last minute and then desperately trying to find the Cliff’s Notes version of whatever it was you were supposed to read). Ah, I could really use a 3 month hiatus from work…but definitely get paid the whole time. I promise to read every day. That seems fair, right?

Dotty-Dot-Dot

I know what you’re thinking: more dots? More sheer dots? And the answer is: yes, more dots. I love polka dots. Almost as much as I love stripes and ruffles. There’s just something so fun and summery about them, amirite? The fact that this top combines not only one, but two of my favorite fashion elements makes it a winner in my book! What do you think? Any favorite prints, patterns or fabrics?
