Long-Sleeved Lace

Back at it with another lace look! This time, a white, long-sleeved lacy dress that’s perfect for a plethora of occasions. I wore it to brunch a few weekends ago, but it’s perfect for date night, any of your bridal festivities, a garden party, you name it. I’m definitely packing it for all of my warm-weather vacations this winter… I think it will be a great dinner-time dress, especially when there’s an ocean breeze! But I can also see myself wearing it with my Jacks for a day-time look. Options are endless!

Striped Shirt + Lace Skirt

Another day, another outfit with this lace skirt. Are you surprised? This time, I styled it with a casual striped tee for a look that’s perfect for spring or fall. Take that, transitional weather. I’ve been at such a crossroads with what to wear lately… The crisp and cool temperatures in Chicago (Yep, 60’s in August. What have I gotten myself into?!) have me reaching for my typical fall attire (jeans and cozy sweaters), but the fact that it’s August and I’m not ready for summer to end has me holding on to summertime staples of lace, lots of white, and of course, stripes.

Ruffled Red Gingham

I’m in an endless summer mindset lately, but I can’t say the constantly-changing Chicago weather is in the same boat. One day it’s 90 degree and muggy, the next it’s a chilly 70 degrees. We all know I am absolutely in love with fall, but only after I’ve had a sufficient summer! Considering it didn’t actually feel like summer in Chicago until mid-July, I’m not ready for the breezy temperatures that we’ve had lately. (Four weeks of summer is not nearly enough!)

This off-the-shoulder, ruffled gingham pom-pom top just screams summer, and I absolutely love it. It’s preppy, feminine, and belongs at a picnic. And I obviously mean that in the best way possible. I actually got the top after the fourth of July or else it would have been perfect for the festive holiday weekend. I don’t know what it is lately, but I can’t stop wearing a mix of red and navy blue. (Evidenced herehere, and here.)
