Hi everyone! I hope you all had a great weekend! I spent my Saturday playing personal shopper for a friend who needed some wardrobe updates and had such a fun time helping her pick items and mixing and matching, it reminded me of why I love personal style so much. Clothes have always felt powerful to me, in both scary and exciting ways depending on the point in my life. To see someone else get excited over the power of clothes and help them see the possibilities of all the fun they can have in them is something that makes me really happy, and a big reason as to why I’ve enjoyed blogging over the past 5+ years. =)
I mentioned in a post last week about how this shirt was sheer at the lace detail, and would need some thoughtful undergarments if modesty is your thing. A pretty decent compromise I found for this shirt is the Zara lace camisole, which adds another layer of lace underneath, while preserving the contrast that makes this sheer lace shoulder detail so cool in the first place. I think a lace nude bra (I think this one from The Little Bra Company would be perfect!) would work just as well, but since I don’t own one at the moment, the cami will do.
