Everybody, Everywear: Lace

Lace | Everybody, Everywear

Skirt: Ann Taylor
Belt: Ann Taylor
Booties: Aldo
Earrings: Target
Crazy face: laughing at B and Kiku

I'm finally participating in Everybody, Everywear, and I'm beyond proud of myself. It's been a busy few weeks as we get our summer interns settled in, teach, and start some new projects, so to find time to build an outfit around lace, and post in time for EBEW is a feat in and of itself.

I love this top. It's about three sizes too big for me, but it works, especially when I tuck it in. It has the added benefit of reminding me of our vacation in Istanbul where we hung out, relaxed, and ate delicious foods.

The lacy back is a little risqué, perhaps, but I wore a sweater most of the time that I was at work, so it was totally appropriate. Although I always have a hard time with this kind of look. Too sexy? Just enough? I don't know....

All I know is that I like the simplicity of brown and black and that this top makes me think of good times, so I'm going with it.


  1. Love the lace top. You look great!

  2. I say it's just enough. You look stunning! I really love this outfit on you!

  3. You look wonderful! Love the back of the shirt with the lace. And I like black and brown together also!

  4. oye mujer tu blusa esta muy bonita y tu vas a quedar tan delgada! Cada vez que posteas te veo mas flaca, estas comiendo bien? (diria mi mama) jejeje Te ves super. =)

  5. Thanks! I love this look, too - simple but pulled together.

  6. Black and brown is one of my favorite combinations.

  7. Jajaja Creo que como más que nunca, pero aún así sigo bajando de peso. No sé por qué será.... ¿Quizás porque casi no como comida procesada?

  8. Love the back of the shirt, such a fun surprise.

  9. I love clothes with a memory. It's great to be able to reminisce about a great time while wearing a outfit!

  10. So pretty and even more so with the story behind it.
    I also have a top with a peekaboo back, which I love, but end up covering up the back all the time.

  11. You look great. I love the nice balance of sexy and modest this look provides.

  12. It's a pretty top and congratulations on your first EBEW.

  13. I love the back of this top! It's striking. (I wish I had participated in EBEW this month!)

  14. I love brown and black together - so chic. And the lace top is fine for work with a cami over it... and NOT too risque for street wear. I love the look - very cute! I have a been follower for awhile but haven't stopped by... you are still rocking the "look"! Cheers!

  15. "Too sexy? Just enough?"

    Not too sexy, but just enough sexiness, eh. Love it anyway, as well as your skirt. Perfect outfit!
