Peekaboo Lace

Though this title is mildly suggestive, I assure you there's no funny business going on in this post. For Marion's challenge of the month, styling lace, I went with something a bit different that incorporates some of my favorite things: plaid, flannel, lace, and bright colors. I rather like my little bit of girly, little bit dude-ish, little bit casual, and little bit sophisticated. And what do you know? I'm a little bit of wowe. That's how it's done, folks. 

Note: tights are not my favorite, but they are a necessary evil at the moment.
(Damn you, cold, pale legs.) 

I love orange and blue together. Of course, I'll tell you that very same thing when I wear just about any other color combination. I just love color, and who am I to resist it? 

I need to brush my hair.  Yikes. 
I really can't wait for the weather to warm up so that I can get this porch in tip top shape. 

I considered boots, but I love these brown wedges...a lot...and decided they were better for a work environment (not that boots aren't good for a work environment).

Outfit Deets
Plaid Shirt: Old Navy (all they have left)
Blue Skirt: The Limited (very similar)
Brown Wedges: Aerosoles via Marshall's 
Lace Shirt: The Limited (straight up sexy)
Earrings: Kohl's

Oh, and I also styled the plaid shirt this way

  9. I really like this outfit! Pairing a plaid button down with a pencil skirt is a great way to dress it up, and I love the bright color of your skirt!

  10. I love how you layered the lace under the plaid...too cute and original!
