I've been really into lace recently. It is such an elegant fabric and adds a feminine touch to any outfit. Even as a uniform color, it adds dimension compared to a plain white tee or dress and can soften a masculine or edgy look.  So, it seemed natural to pair my recently purchased blazer with it. The lace softens the masculinity of the blazer and edginess of my boots. Perfect. 
How do you like to wear lace?

  6. That is such a lovely lace dress! :) I don't own much lace, which is a shame as it's a very pretty fabric :)

    Thank you for the linkup, hope you have a wonderful Christmas!

  35. The lace is just gorgeous, white is my absolute favorite, and I'm a fan of mixing it up with a more masculine piece.

    Merry Christmas!
