Three Ways: Lace Yolk Blouse

Jul 5, 2011

 

Polyvore Set Found Here.

Enjoy a summer in the park with this ikat skirt and bright fuschia, tasseled sandals.  Add simple earrings and small chain chain bag for a ladylike outfit for brunch, church or casual evenings out.  You could add a belt if you want, but the pattern of the skirt is so interesting, I thought I would just let it alone.

Truth be told, I created this entire outfit just so I could finally use that belt.  Talk about a statement piece.  Mix in basic pieces in different shades of grey (the same shade is too matchy-matchy) with the blouse for a pretty work look.  As for accessories, I chose an earring that coordinates with the fuschia in the belt and simple, hammered gold ring.

It’s a bit too hot for this outfit right now, but it will be perfect for early Autumn.  While I don’t usually wear hoops, I thought they were appropriate for a boho-chic feel with the embellished sandal and the large cuff.  Also, this crossbody satchel is a good choice for under-$125.

    Belle, I am usually a skeptic of sheer tops (have a hard time finding the right sort of camisole or bra to go underneath), but you've convinced me to get the Topshop blouse and the Geren Ford blouse from a couple weeks ago. They really are work/casual versatile and can be dressed up or down. Nice finds!

The Range: Eyelet Tops for Summer

Airy eyelet fabrics are one of my favorite spring/summer looks. White is, of course, the traditional fabric. But white is tough to wear when you have a toddler, so let’s go with navy this summer.
