Please forgive the unintentional blog vacay; the dental issues + personal stuff I referred to in my last post have been occupying my mind of late, and I've been lacking any sort of motivation or inspiration. Was not originally planning on posting this outfit from last week, since it's kind of basic and my hair is kind of a hot mess, but at the behest of my gorgeous friend Ems -- photos of my pretty lace skirt.
Lace skirts are the perfect way to rock the maxi skirt trend come midsummer - find one with a lined top half to hide your nether regions, but keep the bottom half sheer and airy, so that things stay cool and you show just a hint of sexy leg. Come winter, you can layer some brightly colored tights underneath for an unexpectedly patterned pop of color. Plus, the shadows coming through the skirt look pretty neat come dusk.
This billowy pink tank is also nice for summer, but it was more of an I'm too exhausted and my face still hurts so I can't think of anything better option. Upon purchase of this skirt, I hunted and subsequently scored a vintage black satin blouse to sexify things up, a la this photo of MK and Ashley. Fashion reason says I should wait until fall/winter to rock said combination, but given my utter disregard for the rules of style, I'm sure you'll be seeing photos sooner rather than later.
Love how these two always dress to contrast each other. Trying to talk my sister into doing something similar with me, because it would pretty much be awesome. Maybe a little weird. But mostly awesome.
Those of you interested in trying out the sheer maxi skirt trend should check out my picture book on Pinterest, Sheerifying, for some super cool ideas and awesome tips.
