[30 for 30: Outfit 12]
Lace shirt: Nordstrom Rack
Skirt: Old Navy
Belt: Nordstrom BP
Boots: Indigo by Clarks
I've been wanting a lace shirt for the longest time, so when I saw this shirt at Nordstrom Rack, it was perfect. It had really cute puff sleeves and an awesome exposed zipper in the back (see a better shot of it here), so I added it to my 30 for 30 pile before actually attempting to wear it.
When I finally decided to bust it out, I realized how hard it was to wear. You can't tell in the picture very well, but it's lace all over, except for a satin trimmed neck, which is about an inch thick all around the collar, which is cute, but makes layering super difficult. Since I obviously need to pair something under the lace, it has to be a crew neck shirt underneath or else there will be this weird gap between the bottom of the collar and above the top of the undershirt. I think a nude color cami or shell would have been perfect, but since I don't own either of those things and I can't really go out and buy one right now, it had to be something that I currently have in my closet, and a black crew-neck t-shirt with pinned-in sleeves was the closest thing I could find to look good under there (I seriously tried on EVERY single shirt I owned under there and they just didn't work).
We had some pretty strong winds last night, and my husband is going to hate me for posting this picture of me on our driveway with debris all over. He is pretty particular about having our driveway look nice and clean, and the next day after a windstorm you can guarantee he's going to sweep/leaf-blow the driveway. But no, I had to take my outfit picture this morning before he swept it all up (it's clean now, just a few hours later) so this is a picture of what our driveway doesn't usually look like.
