lace to the max

January 22, 2014

I've had this gorgeous lace maxi skirt for a month or so now, waiting for the perfect time to wear it. I started to worry, though, that I would have these high expectations for this amazing event to wear it to, and then it wouldn't happen. I couldn't resist "breaking it in," so I styled it more casually for a dinner date with a basic tee and a leather jacket. It's one of those pieces that I want to wear as often as possible, so why not? It will be perfect for fancier event and the fact that I can wear it more casually, as well, is a win win! Also, I did purposely wear black with navy. I was already on a roll with doing the unexpected so I just did it!
t-shirt Gap, skirt c/o Tadashi Shoji {another pretty option}, jacket SW3 Bespoke {this season's update}, statement necklace Ily Couture, M necklace Maya Brenner {also here and here.

  22. Thats a beautiful skirt. I love it. You could even pull it up over your bustline and wear it as a dress with a blazer. Hmm..

  23. I know I pretty much always love your outfits/posts, but this has got to be one of my all time favourite looks I've seen from you. No time like the present to rock that skirt, but I totally "wait" on certain pieces, too.
