Lacy Afternoon


You may have seen me tweeting recently about my new clothes shopping discovery.  It happened accidentally one day while getting some things for my 8-year-old daughter.  I bought an XL girls striped tee & realized that it fit me!  So, when I saw this top on clearance at Gap Kids, I was so excited - it's the same color as the J. Crew lace top I've been drooling over, but cost me less than $15!  (This is a decidedly more conservative pairing, but was ideal with a white blazer for Easter service at our church last weekend...which was when these pictures were taken.)




What I'm wearing:
Gap Kids top (sold out online, check your local stores), Banana Republic skirt (last seen here), Merona belt, BCBG pumps, Forever 21 necklace, Vintage & Monet bracelets, Nails: Sally Hansen Shrimply Devine, Lips: NARS Roman Holiday

isn't it amazing how much higher women's clothing is? wish girls' clothes worked for me!

That color combo really makes your blue eyes pop. I'm going to have to try it for myself.

Gap kids finds are so exciting when they work! That top looks far from childish.

that shirt is a MAJOR find!! I'm dying to head to Gap and now you have given me an extra reason. Dangerous!

My Dressy Ways said...

Lol. You and your daughter have entered the stage of clothes sharing! One that I am definitely looking forward to with mine. She already tries to borrow my clothes but she's still too small.

I've tried girls' tops but find they don't fit across the bust correctly - I wonder if that's why the JCP blouse fits better on me than you?

Christine said...

I love that you bought a kids shirt! What a great idea. I do the same thing with my football jerseys!

i loveee the lace top! i saw the jcrew lace skirt kind of similar to it and almost bought it..

Kathleen Lisson said...

Ooh! The hot pink lipstick really makes your blue eyes pop! I will have to try a hot pink lip and nail. Right now I'm loving a dark red on my lips to make my blue eyes pop, but this looks fresh for Spring!

This top is gorgeous and the fact that you bought it at the childrens store is awesome! It doesn't look childish at all- in fact the lucky little girls who wear this are some stylish girls. Love this color combination!

Love the lace and the color!!! The teen section is good too at most stores. Less expensive and the clothes are more adult these days. I get my workout shorts and t's in boys department. Much much cheaper!!!
