Lace in Mind

In my mind, few things communicate "feminine" better than delicate lace—let alone lace of the sheer variety. It's my go-to piece for a dreary day and perfect option for New York's summer to fall transition.

I love that lace can be work-appropriate yet also sexy and playful, depending on how you style it. Since the skirt is double-layered, I kept the rest of my look simple and classic in white to create a balance. A chunky bracelet and transparent box clutch injects the outfit with added personality.

What are you wearing during the transitioning weather, and what do you think about my look? Thank you for reading and see you all soon!

  10. I have the same skirt. I love it so much, have been wearing it a lot, despite how unique and bright it is, I find it easy to pair in new looks. It's always nice to see how the same skirt looks on somebody else and how other style them. You look gorgeous.

  12. I love that look, Jess. it's really simple but at the same time says so much. white and yellow are super effective together and the accessories are perfect as well. when it comes to my looks then right now they're not the best, hehe since I've caught a little cold and you know how it is then - only the warmest things are an option. jeans, sweatshirt and classic black wedge booties. simple and comfy.

    A Zara opened their first store in the city I live in and the minute I saw all those crazy shoppers fighting over full priced clothes, I didn't want to go in. Perhaps I'll visit in another month when the hype dies down.

  45. I always am so inspired and awestruck by your amazing blog! Everything about this outfit makes my jaw drop with envy and admiration! I have several skirts with the sheer top layer and shorter layer underneath; sadly, I always felt like it was uncomfortable as the shorter layer would sometimes ride up... But your skirt looks like a perfect fit and is amazing on your incredible figure :) Also that clutch! If I could have stars and hearts in my eyes, I would haha :P

    Thanks for your amazingly sweet comment on my blog post once again, I am honoured that you would bother <3
