Is there anything more romantic than lace? It’s one of my favorite summer fabrics– especially for travel. It’s easily dressed up when worn from head to toe or paired with drapey silk, but also totally casual and chic for a day of dining, shopping and sightseeing abroad. As you can see below, it can pair with everything from sneakers and denim minis to leather jackets and bikinis without missing a beat. I’m personally on a bit of a shopping freeze until after I give birth. I remember with Parker being a few weeks postpartum and having this urge to totally update my wardrobe, so I’m trying to prepare for that binge by not shopping for a few plus months. (In the meantime, I have been living in these super affordable dresses. Sans belt they’re perfect for maternity even though they’re not. I own both colors and would happily by more to get me through August if they made them!)
