Lace Loving

- Outfits


This is my first time linking up to Marion’s Trend of the Month Challenge and I couldn’t be more excited about this month’s challenge: lace. I have quite a few lace pieces, mostly neutral ones, so I wanted to challenge myself to wear a lace piece I haven’t in awhile AND in a new way. I just transformed my denim dress into a shirt a few weeks ago, so I decided to transform this lace dress into a shirt as well. Of course, completely work INAPPROPRIATE as a dress. Add my favorite maxi and it was completely work appropriate. Hooray! My biggest challenge in shopping lately is buying items that I can wear both to work AND on the weekends. I didn’t buy this dress with the intention of both, but I guess I found out it has more uses!

    I really like this and this color looks great on you! I’m so mad, I thought the trend for today was a pop of orange, I swear she said that last week, hence my outfit today. I’m wearing lace tomorrow, so I’m so annoyed I didn’t figure out I was wrong until I posted today. Oh well, there’s always next time.

      Heather, thanks for your comment! I actually got this maxi skirt on sale at the end of 2011! It must have been from the fall 2011 line or something because I bought it in December! Hopefully there will be some other cute items coming out in her line this spring though… including pleated maxis!

    I love this look, Rachel! I try to buy things that can be worn on weekends and to work too…and it definitely can be challenging! Love how you made this dress work both ways – you have me wondering what work inappropriate things I can pull out of my closet and make them work…for work!
