Day to Night / Lace Skirt

I recently purchased a cream colored lace skirt while I was in NY. I loved how the simple shape paired with the elegant lace. Now, I consider a skirt like this a basic, worn in every season from winter to summer. Here is how I would style it for summer/fall.
Day to Night : Lace Skirt
Day / since the lace is already so intricate, pair it with a solid colored top. I like this neutral, comfortable grey tee. The leather bag adds a near masculine touch to the very feminine skirt which I love. Of course, I love the look of a classic pair of sneakers which just scream “day casual” to me while still looking chic. I love the pop the bright pink geometric necklace adds to the outfit. Last but not least, I love the fishtail braid.
Night / since the lace skirt is so elegant, I decided to go a step further with a purple, silk, tie-neck top. A classic pair of shoes, an elegant bangle,  and a sparkly clutch add to the look. The addition of a bright pinkish-plum lip finishes off the look with a touch of sheer color.

This or That / Mint Shorts

As my journey finally comes to a close for the perfect mint shorts, another begins as I try to find the perfect shirts to match (I cannot even start to think about accessories). The first look, the “classic and sassy” one features a billowy blouse with gold polka dots from Zara, the perfect combo to ground the eclectic-ness of the shorts. The second look features a neon pink striped tee from J. Crew. Although it may seem like too much color, the stripes add a classic, fun approach to the shorts, perfect for summer. The only problem now…which shirt to buy first!

This or That: Mint Shorts


The Tragic Tunic

Well, this shirt sure does have a tragic story… when I first spotted the shirt (shown below), on the J. Crew website, it passed my mind and I just kept on looking. Then, I could not get the “mysterious” shirt out of my head. I had forgotten where I had seen it and I just imagined its spot in my closet, not to mention with my favorite denim shorts. I searched and searched and searched, until, tah dah, I found it. Then, it got sold out, but to my luck, it ended up somehow reappearing. It should arrive tomorrow and I cannot wait to try it on! Here is how I plan to style it…
