OFF TO THE LACES

When I think of something “lacing up” images of corsets and those awful jeans from Limited Too circa 2001 that laced up the front instead of having a normal button/zip fly. I pray y’all know what I’m referring to because I’m literally laughing to myself as I type this. Basically, anything with crisscross ties has been trashy for years, but go ahead and toss those images out the window and prepare to lace up your wardrobe. We’ve all seen these amazing Aquazzura flats for a while now (I literally dream about them),¬†but this trend can definitely be applied to more than just shoes, as evidenced above! Elizabeth and James does it best, with both dresses in the top right. Whether you want to be super sexy in the black dress that channels Balmain, or a little more reserved¬†in the burgundy, with the subtle laced detail at the waist, this trend can work so many different ways. I love that it adds an edge to any outfit and can fit in with any style!

Happy Monday! Here’s some of the things I’m currently coveting. I really need a new wallet, and this little Saint Laurent number is basically calling my name. I’m also mulling over getting this wallet, as it’s a little more realistic price-wise, like…$500 more realistic.

Summer Wedding Wear

It’s that time of year again: wedding season. I’ve rounded up my favorite occasion dresses from Shopbop! Maybe it’s the hometown hero in me, but I love Shopbop. They have the greatest selection and for my fellow Madisonians, the free three day shipping basically means free overnight shipping (seriously, so fast). Since the company is owned by Amazon, it’s also available for Prime! I picked a dress for everything from the casual outdoor nuptials, to the swanky black tie soiree! I also tried to select from a wide price range. Are you a Southern Belle with a wedding every weekend this summer? Don’t buy a dress for each (unless you have the ample means, which in that case, take me shopping too!). Many of these dresses can be styled differently, so throw on a different shoe, add a statement necklace, or even just change your hair. Chances are there will be different crowds at each event, so don’t sweat being an outfit repeater. Great dresses like these deserve to be worn, so don’t be afraid to invest in one and keep re-styling it all summer!
