Laced & Ready



After returning from my West Coast vacation (where the weather was fairly mild and cool), I had to quickly adjust to the sweltering heat & humidity that's pretty typical for NY this time of year.  I wore this lightweight lace dress yesterday and decided to show you the two ways I styled it - dressed up & down (although if you live in a climate like mine, a denim jacket might be too toasty during the day).  


What I'm wearing:
Petticoat Alley dress (via TJ Maxx; similar), Aldo pumps (on sale here), c/o Pop of Chic necklace (here), Ann Taylor cuff (similar), Mango bag, Mudd sunnies (similar), Nails: Sally Hansen Sun Kissed, Lips: Revlon Just Bitten Kissable Rendezvous



What I'm wearing:
Petticoat Alley dress (via TJ Maxx; similar), Tinseltown Denim Couture jacket (via TJ Maxx; similar), Old Navy oxfords (love this champagne sparkly pair), c/o Pop of Chic necklace (here), Mango bag, Dockers aviators (similar), Nails: Sally Hansen Sun Kissed, Lips: Revlon Just Bitten Kissable Rendezvous

I love how you styled it with the denim jacket but like you said, where I am makes it entire too hot to wear it with a jacket. So cute as always.

So cute! I love it with the denim jacket. I didn't think it could get that hot in NY. What?! Where can I go to get away from the heat and humidity of Louisiana? It's TERRIBLE here.

Very pretty look! I love how it's both bold and sweet. Also, I think the addition of a light wash denim jacket adds a great cool girl vibe to just about any outfit.

Love both of these outfits! I actually almost got the same dress the other day but sadly wasn't my size. I love it- it's stunning with the neon under the lace! Also love the clutch in the first outfit and the jean jacket in the 2nd! Are you a fan of the jean jacket now? :)

What I love about this dress is the layering with the lace and how it changed the colour of the piece. I saw a similar style but with a pink underlay - I normally stray away from pink but I thought it was very pretty. This is a lovely look :-)

Love your outfit! Funny about your jacket because before I became a SAHM I worked for the private label who owns Tinseltown.....they have great stuff and the designers work HARD! :)

Lovenpraise said...

Love your outfit! Funny thing about your jacket is that Before I became a SAHM I worked for the private label manufacturer that owns Tinseltown. They have GREAT stuff and the designers work their tails off :)
Now if you lived in California I'd say come to the sample sales where everything is 4.00!!! Now that's heaven!
