A Little Bit of Lace | The Creative Closet

Good morning, and welcome back from the long weekend! I hope everybody had some fun in the sun and had time to relax and reboot for the week(s) ahead.

I’m back today co-hosting The Creative Closet linkup, and I couldn’t be more excited because the prompt features one of my very favorite trends for summer (and really, all year) – lace!

Particularly during the summer months, I gravitate toward lace/crochet tops and dresses for their light, airy feeling and for an ultra-feminine bohemian vibe. I picked up this boxy cropped blouse from The Loft Outlet during a shopping spree with my mom during Mother’s Day weekend; it was on the front table as soon as I walked in, and it was in my hands approximately five seconds later.

For nearly at her due date, Jana is looking ah-mazing in that long lace cardi and fringe wedges. And, can we just appreciate how fabulous Maegen is looking only two months after having her adorable baby boy?! These ladies make pregnancy/post-pregnancy look so easy and chic.

Although this top can easily be dressed up – and definitely will be for summer date nights – I kept it low-key and casual this time around with a comfortable pair of boyfriend jeans and minimal gold accessories to keep the focus on the gorgeous lace detail on the shirt.

lace blouse: The Loft Outlet (similar & similar) | boyfriend jeans: Jennifer Lopez for Kohl’s (exact) | wedges: Old Navy (similar) | gold tassel necklace: Forever 21 (similar) | gold bangle: Kate Spade (exact)
Shop the look:
!function(doc,s,id){ var e, p; if(!doc.getElementById(id)) { e     = doc.createElement(s); e.id  = id; p = ‘//shopsensewidget.shopstyle.com/widget-script.js’; var cb = new Date().getTime(); p += ‘?cb=’ + cb; e.src = p; doc.body.appendChild(e); } if(typeof window.ss_shopsense === ‘object’){ if(doc.readyState === ‘complete’){ window.ss_shopsense.init(); } } }(document, ‘script’, ‘shopsensewidget-script’);
There definitely are some fun prompts coming up in June – I’m looking forward to seeing how each of you make these outfits your own!
