I saw this lacy top at Forever 21 last week and absolutely loved it. I was sad to see that it was the last one available (none online either!) and that it was a size large. It fit like a parachute on me, but when I pictured it with the sides slimmed in, it looked like the perfect layering piece!
For my first attempt at wearing this lacy top, I opted for an old Bebe shirt that almost exactly matched in color. I actually hadn’t worn this Bebe top in years as I realized that it could be a little see-through in the wrong light. I vacillated between keeping the top and just donating it to Goodwill, and boy am I happy that it stayed in my closet! Even better, the Bebe top came with a little bow in the front and it was just what I needed to keep the lacy cover in place!

I really like that skirt! And I don't think you could ever go wrong with lace – as long as it's not see through 😛
You look amazing! The lacy top is gorgeous and is definitely tasteful enough to wear to work. 🙂
I also love your shoes, and I wish I could pull off such tall heels!
Love this look so much. Lacy top looks gorgeous with that grey skirt. I just wish I could pull off lace items but I end up looking like an old lady wearing lace..duh!
I think the lace top is very work appropriate. It's so pretty, and romantic.

I love the lace, but honestly my favorite part of this is the sweet little detail of the bow on the shirt under the lace top. It's such a pretty, feminine touch.

You are so dang adorable! I am glad you kept that Bebe top as well you look fabulous in it!
Oh wow, this turned out great! And I love your hair wavy! How are you doing your hair for your wedding?
I don't think this looks informal at all, not even close. It's very prim and proper, very lovely.

Kisses and regards!!
I really like this. The color combo is probably my favorite ever. Any variation on pink or coral paired with gray has such a subtly feminine yet tonally masculine look that I adore it. I think the lace top looks fantastic. I honestly thought the bow was part of it!
Wonderful top! Love all the items! Follow you) follow me?
