Creative Closet: A Little Bit of Lace

Lace is one of my favorite fabrics, but I feel like it has gotten a bit of a bad reputation lately as being synonymous with old lady style (or, on the other end of the spectrum, for little girls only). I love the romantic, girly feel of lace all on its own, but my favorite way to wear it is to roughen it up a bit with some surprising edges.


How pretty is this cheery blue color? While I still love a classic cream or blush lace, I was drawn to this dress because of its unexpected hue. To harden up the softness of the lace, I added a pretty gold metal necklace. I knew I wanted to top this look off with some kind of hair accessory, but none of mine seemed to be quite right. Luckily, T had his summer hat sitting around, and I really liked the idea of mixing a man's piece with this super-feminine dress.



Dress - Urban Outfitters (old; similar here)
Necklace - Peachy Pie Designs
Hat - Gap 

What do you think of lace - love it, or hate it? And how do you style it?

Linking up with Patti, Leanne, and Maegan!
