Hello Lovlies! Y’all may have seen this white lace tunic on my Instagram before. It’s one of those easy breezy tops you can just throw on and be good to go. The reason it’s the perfect lace tunic is how versatile it is. I love wearing it with different color denim. Here I am wearing my new favorite jeans for warm water. These light blue jeans with holes are incredibly flattering on because they really slim your legs! The holes hit at just the right length for shorter gals and they fit me perfectly without any alterations. Plus, these jeans are less than $70! Not to mention the quality is on point.
This white lace tunic is perfect for when I’m going out to eat. In fact, I call it my eat-however-much-I-want top, ha! If I don’t want the full blousy swing effect from this top, I will tuck the front into my jeans. Usually, this is before I eat. Once I go through a couple rounds of dim sum or in this case, seafood, my belly has expanded. Then, I untuck it to cover my new food baby, ha! Another aspect I really enjoy about this top is the balloon style sleeves. They feel so regal the sheer lace is beautiful. Since the sleeves are smaller toward the wrist, don’t necessarily get in the way of doing things, which is great. Also, this top will look fantastic tucked into skirts too, especially if they have a fuller shape. I have even gotten away with wearing this to work!
Hi My Beautiful Friends! Lately, I am on a big pink kick. When I was younger, I actually hated the color. Funny how things change as we grow older, huh? I want to share how to pull off a monochromatic look with tips you can use all year long. My pink on pink look consists of three shades of pink. I find what really pulls the look together is when the shades are both very different from each other and different textures. From the top to the shorts, to the bag!
First off, my outfit begins with these bow tie shorts. They are definitely the statement piece of the outfit with their bright color and over-the-top bow! While they are a statement piece, you can easily restyle for both casual and dressy looks. Also, I will mention these require a good steam or iron session before wearing. These shorts are the base of my pink on pink look.
Since the shorts are a very rich shade of pink, the next color needs to be pale and not as opaque. I love how darling this light pink off the shoulder top is. Plus, it has little bow ties on the sleeves, which tie in with the bow tie shorts. Finally, I wanted to go with a very light color for my bag, so this blush pink Saint Laurent Sac de Jour from Trendlee was perfect.
Hello lovelies! My love affair with gingham dates back to my college days. I remember wearing gingham print shirts in orange (Hook ’em!) and pink. When I spotted this adorable gingham halter dress in Anthropologie, I instantly fell in love. There is something about this dress that’s so charming, darling and whimsical all in one! Most of all, I loveIf you like, you can wear this dress off the shoulder and tuck the halter straps inside. Another option is to wear it on the shoulder, too! The material is a super soft cotton and the dress has a fit and flare silhouette. Plus, this dress has pockets, which is my favorite part. While dresses like this can easily swallow someone who is petite, the detachable sash gives shape. I am not a fan of dresses that end up looking like potato sacks.
This dress does run a little long on me. But personally, I enjoy where the hem hits just below my knee. It gives a very southern charm type feel and is romantic. However, this dress does come in petite sizing in addition to regular. For reference, I’m wearing the regular XXS. Of course, you can dress this gingham halter dress up or down. While a pair of sparkly earrings are sure to make this dress fit a fancier affair, flat sandals will dress it down. Since I love riding the line between casual and fancy, I am wearing block heels and simple accessories. This is probably my favorite type of outfit since it’s a mix of both!
