Lacy Days

I’ve had this over-sized lace top sitting in my closet for a while and only recently have I started to realize how great it works as a piece to just layer over-top of other pieces. Here are a some examples. And this is unrelated but I forgot how much I love this statement ring that I tend to not wear that often because it catches on coat pockets, etc. Still, it really makes a statement and maybe once winter has passed and I have less layering going on I can get some more wear out of it (you know, less layers for it to catch on, etc.).


t-shirt: H&M / blouse: ModCloth / shoes: Aldo / shorts: H&M



dress: Nicole Miller / blouse: ModCloth / belt: Target

Love love love it over the red dress! And that ring is gorgeous as well. I know what you mean about annoying ring snags though. Happens with one of my favorites, too.

I'm scared of wearing lace because knowing me I would hook it on something sharp and make it rip!

Jennifer Fabulous said...
