Leather and Lace

When I saw this lace top on Merrick on instagram a few weeks ago, I couldn't help but admire it. It is such a lovely piece and I really liked how she dressed her outfit down with tennis shoes too. I could easily see it dressed up as well. But the price tag was a little high for the amount I could see myself wearing it. There are also aspects like the bell sleeves and crop top cut that make it a tad trendy. I really try to avoid spending a lot on trendier items because who knows how long the trend will be around? So when I saw almost the exact same top on SheIn for a fraction of the price in blush it was a very good day. I actually like the blush color better! For early fall, I layered it over a blush tee, but later this season as temps dip, it would also look lovely under a leather jacket or even a blazer for work.

  9. I think I could actually wear this top and function in it since the sleeves are only 3/4 length. I'm assuming they didn't get in your way as much during the day?
    And look---a perfect top to wear a cami under...:)

  32. I have soft spot for lace and this top is so lovely. I love how you styled with leather trousers giving a bit of edginess to soft, romantic lace. I have been on a hunt for faux leather trousers or leggings. I love how they give a mix of texture and edginess to any look.
