Over here in the U.K, we get what I'd call blink and you'll miss it summer. I've given up allocating unnecessary hard earned money to fund my summer wardrobe. I've spent more time wrapped up in my parka than wearing cute summer dresses. Forgive me if you see plenty of recycling over here on my blog. Most of what I'm wearing are from yesteryears which you've all seen many times before.
I've been thinking of ways I can add a dressier summer top to my existing wardrobe which can also be worn when the colder months come around again. I was trawling Vestiaire Collective (as I normally do when I've got a moment to spare) and came across this near new lace top from Vanessa Bruno Spring/Summer 2015 collection at a steep discount. Of course, I was too cheap to spring £300 for the same thing the previous year. As you probably know, the French designers are notorious for their itty bitty sizing so I sized up to a 40 as opposed to my usual 36/38.
Surprisingly, I could get away with wearing a nude bra underneath because of the thicker knit but the lace material also kept me cool under the blistering summer heat. I wore a Petit Bateau nude vest (second photo) when the temperature dipped below 20˚C. The best thing about a well made lace top is you could dress it up or down depending on the occasion.
