Lace Top Two Ways

So a fun idea occurred to my blogger friend Liz and I a couple of weeks ago while we were shopping together. Lets get the same top in different colors and then style them!! So naturally we both go for our go to looks I picked the black top and Liz went with the Lavender. Liz reached for her favorite pink pumps and white skinnies, and I grabbed my peep toe booties and ripped up jeggings. The result? A perfectly unplanned balance of how to style a lace top with dark and light pieces.

We actually laughed when we met up to shoot this, like “OF COURSE you were going to pair your top with white skinnies and pink pumps!” Its perfect, its you! Liz gave this boho chic top a refined air by pairing it with pumps and white skinny jeans, top it off with a perfect bun and Liz has created a perfectly polished look that is ready for a date night out. I love how bright this look is, its a pop of spring color that will take her into summer. She could easily switch out the skinny jeans for a white a-line skirt for when the temps heat up.

I paired my black lace top with a pair of dark wash ripped jeggings and a army green spring jacket. I wanted to keep my footwear neutral and seasonally appropriate so I grabbed my favorite TOMS booties(which I actually purchased last year but they are still in stock!). In my true style I wanted to lend this romantic boho lace top some edge, instead of making this top the highlight of my look I pushed for it to add texture and interest to my outfit. This is a piece I will wear again and again, sometimes it will be all about adding some texture and then other times it will be the highlight of my entire look. I would wear this same jeans and top combo with some platform sandals and my hair pulled back to a concert or out for cocktails with my girlfriends.
