Day 4: Backyard BBQ complete with Beer & Brats
The Trend: Lace
Is it lingerie? Is it a table cloth? How should one wear lace & when is it appropriate? Lace seems to stand the test of time in it's various forms within decor & clothing. I find it luxurious, a staple, a stamp of tradition in an ever-changing world filled with fly-by-night trends. I love it's feminine quality & I love it's versatility. On the dramatic side I've seen fellow bloggers successfully pair lingerie shorts with a poplin top. Being a sucker for contrast, I love the dramatic look of a rugged pair of ripped up jeans & something as refined as a lace bodice or blouse. The runway showed the gamut of lace embellishments from layered lace dresses to monochromatic blouses with a subtle lace trim. Lady-like looks are everywhere for fall & they are the perfect place for lace. If you are so lucky to own an heirloom pull it out this fall & experiment with contrast pieces. If not, pick up a piece or two, it is an investment that will not go out of style. On to my outfit... because I looked a 97 degree backyard BBQ in the face, I opted for short shorts with these layered lace tanks. Once again, Tory Burch completed my look in the form of patent leather wedges. Simple, but a "cool" way to revisit a trend I adore so much!
