Feminine Frills

Between our weekend of bike rides and beach time, Gabe and I were able to walk to dinner and savor the sunshine along the way. I paired this lace top with this floral flowy skirt and felt incredibly girly and old fashioned. The shoes topped it off, turning the outfit into what I like to call "grandma chic". I loved the look and feel of the lace top and can't wait to pair it with blazers and skinny jeans for fall.

Skirts with pockets are always a favorite of mine.

I have the same top, but I haven't worn it because it is sheer. Do you mind sharing what you're wearing underneath?

If you haven't done so, I hope you will enter my giveaway of a $50 gift card to the Cheesecake Factory :).

Hi Valerie (I'm back!!),

I really love this outfit, one of my favorites that you've posted, because it's classy, but by no means outdated. And the shoes are amazing. I had a black pair like that and I still miss them.

I look forward to getting caught up on your posts (starting w/ all the new posts 1st:)
