I don’t really classify myself as a girlie girl. Rarely will you see me in florals, flowy dresses, and definitely not pink. Lately, however, I have been thoroughly enjoying some lace. From black lace dresses, to white lace dresses, and now to this gorgeous, corded, lace blouse. I am definitely delving more into my feminine side with this summer lace trend. But being a fiercely loyal soul, I still remain true to my tomboy side and complemented this ladylike top with some rugged, distressed denim. There’s nothing more classic than a white top and denim outfit for the summer. Paired with some sky high, nude pumps, I am ready to take on the day! What are your thoughts on the lace trend and do you identify more with feminine or masculine pieces?

Major Babe Alert! You look amazing! I love how you made this lace top edgy and it connects to your style! Love it!
Thanks Candice! I try to mix different styles together to create a balance in my looks.
Beautiful as always!
Thanks Jennifer! Hope you have a wonderful weekend!
Hello Babe!! You definitely can rock lace all the way! I have always been fearful of lace, and I don’t even know why! Anything too girly is not me, I prefer the classy chic, or free style bohemian look, but most of the time i’m somewhere in between feminine and masculine! Lately i’ve been admiring more of that masculine look though!! You do that so well!! xox!
I’ve been the same, scared to wear lace. But I definitely have seen a lot more lace items that aren’t overly girlie or boho. You have an amazing style anyway so you could rock whatever (even a potato sack) and look gorgeous!
I should really learn how to comment appropriately. LOL … one day! 😉
You are killing this lace look! I also really love those denim jeans — they fit you so perfectly and I am swooning over the distressed feel of it. Happy weekend babe! xo, sharon
These jeans are literally the softest pair of jeans I have! They’re supposed to be “skinny,” but I like that there is a little room in them – not quite super skinny and not boyfriend jeans.
I want to have all your outfits! Lace is my favourite too, I recently bought a similar top at Zara and love it. You look gorgeous!
Happy Friday xox
I love Zara! They have the cutest clothes. I can’t wait to see you wear your lace top too!
You look amazing! I love this lace top! Have a great weekend!
Thank you Jennifer!
Love the lace top with the denim. So chic!
You are so sweet Jessi! I hope you are doing well. Love your video and all your posts on your recent trips!
Amazing look! You look gorgeous!
Thank you Antonia!
This is a nice combo on you, I find it to really suits your personality. So into your bag.
Thank you Mercy! You are so correct, this is definitely an outfit that shows my personality – mixing of different styles. I do love this bag (as you can tell), I like buying investment pieces and use them a lot!
That is such a pretty top! I looove lace, it looks so feminine and elegant 😀
I agree the lace is just the right amount of feminine for me. I love this top!
Love, love love those boyfriend jeans! Cute look, beautiful!

Beautiful lace top Christine! It complements your distressed denim jeans so so well!
