La Mariposa: Lace Overlay

I originally bought this lace-overlay sweatshirt to wear for a semi-casual look, ie: jeans. However, after playing dress-up for a bit, I realized it would look interested with a high-contrasting undershirt. Which lead me to this look!

Lace and crochet have always seemed pretty girly to me, and when combined with this particular skirt, there’s just no doubt on that thought. This skirt was less than $20 from Forever 21 (steal!) and I bought it when I was 18 (I’m 24 now!)… Wowza! It’s held up so well, and is really worth every little penny.  I’ve got a few items that have held-up throughout time,but this one seems to top the charts.

I may normally wear this skirt during the holidays, but really, what’s not to love about a festive and glamorous August afternoon?!

Thanks for reading!


Mis primeras intenciones fueron de usar este suéter para algo informal: ie: combinado con jeans. Después de combinarlo con varias piezas de ropa, decidí que sería interesante combinar el blanco con negro para un gran contraste. ¡Y asi, tenemos este look!

Siempre opino que el encaje y el ganchillo son aspectos muy femeninos de la ropa, y cuando son combinados con esta falda, no hay duda que sí son. Me costó esta falda menos que $20 en Forever 21 (ganga!) y la compré cuando tenía 18 años (ya tengo 24!) Wowza! Ha quedado perfecto y de verdad, vale la pena. Tengo unas piezas de ropa que compré hace años pero esta falda es la mejor.

Normalmente, llevo la falda durante los días festivos del invierno (la navidad), pero es divertido usar para una tarde glamorosa de agosto también!

¡Gracias por leer!

    Love the lace top! The lace of the top seems very graphic and detailed and with the black tank it really pops.
