What I Wore: Lace and Polka-dots

I recently discussed my preoccupation with mint as a wonderful addition to my summer wardrobe’s color palette. Continuing the theme of summer style, I decided to combine a few other seasonal trends to create this whimsical look:

I really love how the lace and polka-dots looked together.

I also thought fuchsia was a nice pop of color. I can dress very casually for my job, but the building is heavily air-conditioned so I always need to plan an optional layering piece for some extra warmth. The cardigan worked with my pointed-toe flats to add vibrancy.

Any-hoo, here are the different elements of my look:

-Seven polka-dotted skinny jeans (Gap, Talbots, J. Crew)

-Valerie Bertinelli lace top (Forever 21, Forever 21, Ann Taylor, Piperlime, Piperlime)

-Talbots charming cardigan in fuschia

-Talbots pointed-toe suede flats (BCBG at DSW, Talbots, Kate Spade at Zappos)

I also added a long jeweled pendant necklace:

My necklace is from Forever21, but you can easily buy a similar pendant of much higher quality from a different vendor, I found several options (Express, Nordstrom, Tiffany & Co. -this one’s good luck!). Specifically, I stumbled upon this amazing Pearl Vial Necklace from House of Harlow! It’s not just for show, the faux-pearl cap actually unscrews to reveal a tiny storage space. Is it awful that this immediately reminded me of the Cruel Intentions rosary necklace?

If I hadn’t just gone on that irresponsible shopping binge at Talbots, I might consider buying it, it’s on sale! Have you made any wonderful and unexpected shopping finds recently? Are you loving the mixture of dots and lace, or could you do without? Feel free to leave comments, and visit my pinterest page for more unique finds!
