When you think about lace, does a somewhat fancy look come to mind? Sure, it's beautiful, feminine and can make for a fabulously glamorous look, but you can easily dress down lace as well. I'm all about adding special elements to my summer outfits, even the casual ones. And I consider lace a very special element...Don't you? It always reminds me of two very elegant ladies...my Nana and my Nonnie. So, I feel like I'm tipping my hat to them when I don lace, albeit in a more modern way than perhaps they would have worn it. So, let's talk about how to wear lace in the summer...
When I saw the lovely Bobbin Lace Top from CAbi , I knew I had to have it. Not only would it look lovely all dolled up, but I knew it would take my ordinary summer date night go-tos, skinny jeans and sandals, up a notch.And that's just what I styled it with. Dark rinse skinnies and my new brick red Sam Edelman Gigi sandals were a perfect fit for my CAbi lace top. I finished off the look with my beloved African bead necklace.

When I'm picking up new pieces in the summertime, I try to select ones that will work in the early fall, so I can get the most possible wear out of them. I'll be able to sport this lace top under blazers, dress slacks and more around the holidays for instance. The possibilities are endless! The same goes for the sandals. I'll be able to rock that fall perfect color until the temps get too cold for bared tootsies. And since I'm in Florida the majority of the time, it should be a while before that happens. Haha! I'm all about a good transitional wardrobe. Just sayin'.
So, how do you feel about lace lovelies? Are you bringing it out to play this summer too?
