Zara blazer / Isabel Marant pour H&M lace top / Hermes belt / Zara boyfriend jeans / Marni sandals (similar here) / Chanel WOC / Hermes Cape Cod watch
Just so you know, I'm very tempted to change my blog name to AddictionToBoyfriendJeans.com. So cast your eyes away from my ubiquitous jeans which are permanently attached to my legs. Lately, I've been drawn to lace tops. Yes, me the tomboy. With a closet no wider than half of my arm span, it's an easy guess that I'll be wearing the same few outfits on many occasions. Anything that's too obvious will be ........ an invitation for questions like "ooooh, that must be your favorite/only top?"
My excuse is that monochromatic lace tops are still eye-catching but equally subtle and quietly elegant without drawing unnecessary attention to the wearer. I've dipped my tippy toes into the textile print pool on many occasions. Perhaps it's my personality but I'm still deathly scared of wearing colors, particularly if it's too loud.
Okay, this may sound a little weird AND a contradiction but I like lace tops that aren't too sheer and delicate. Otherwise, it screams lingerie or evening wear. Anything that's too delicate will probably be ripped to shreds around kids and dogs. I find lace tops, if chosen well, can be versatile. It's a little like wearing a t-shirt but a dressier version. What are your thoughts on lace?
pssssst....I'm going to return the Isabel Marant pour H&M beaded jacket (size EU36/UK10 and £199.99 + paypal fees and postage) as it's just a tad too small for me. Let me know if you want it. UK and E.U only.
