Last night's attire.
H&M Lace top, Gaimo Gold Espadrilles, H&M Boyfriend Jeans, Susie Ho Sample Bracelet
Night out with the girls for an Italian except we detoured along the way and ended up at a different Italian to the one planned. Just go with the flow. That includes the wine. All two glasses of it. Hic.
I was keeping it simple with the H&M cream lace top and some jeans. Wearing anything lacy is an event for me anyway so I felt I'd made some effort. Add the gold espadrilles and an old vintagey looking Jigsaw bag and I'm really pushing the boat out!
Old Jigsaw Bag
I quite like my H&M lacy top. I sized up in it so it didn't cling and it means it sits more comfortably over any layers I want to wear underneath. For going out and to make it a little more peekaboo looking, I put on a skin toned vest underneath.
Peekaboo Sizing Up
Too laid back for you? Here's an alternative sweet and simple evening look ....
Jigsaw necklace (old), Jack Wills Black Jeans (old)
Add a nice jacket/blazer - good to go.
But for day, a thin cream top would make a good base layer and gives it a more casual look (plus it's warmer for the nesh amongst us). There doesn't seem to be any good reason why lace can't be worn as daywear really ....
Converse for me but swap shoes to suit your style .. ballet pumps? boots? sandals?
Versatile isn't it? For £19.99. It doesn't crease and even better, it comes in black too!
Last Note :
- I chopped the sleeves down on mine to make them bracelet length. So that I can show off my arm candy.
- I chopped the length of the body down a fraction too - only because I'm short but I could have got away with not doing it. If I'd left it long, it would have been nice to use this as a base layer under a jumper and just have the lace showing as a hem detail.
- I think I'm trying to say - it's good for tall people too!
