A Touch of Lace
For weeks now I’ve been trying to find a lace dress. And for just as many weeks I’ve been trying to find a pair of gold flats and a belt to match. Completely unrelated wants, but they all came together for this outfit!
In my quest for a lace dress I found that it can prove rather challenging, especially for those of us with more curves. The lace overlay can bunch or pull in all the wrong areas, so I was pleased to find that this dress fit me and my curves just right. I love it’s classic A-line shape, which is one of my favorite cuts for dresses. And, it has pockets. You can never go wrong with pockets in a dress.
Even though the beautiful mulberry lace is placed over a navy bodice, I opted for black tights and a black sweater. I’d just stumbled upon my gold belt at Nordstrom (it reverses to silver!), and ordered these gold Coach flats, so I thought it would be perfect to add a little pop to my outfit and brighten it up. By adding gold accessories in my necklace, belt and shoes I was able to incorporate a color into the outfit that wasn’t originally found in the dress. Since the gold accents are spaced out, it is balanced and fresh, and not overpowering.
This is one of my favorite necklaces! You’ve seen me wear it here.
