One of the reining styles of spring/summer is lace. The styles are feminine, beautiful and practical. That’s right, practical and these lace styles go way beyond the bedroom. You can also look professional and sophisticated wearing lace.
The look I am wearing would be pushing the limits for the office, but with a camisole underneath you could certainly wear this look for a work related event. I have also picked some of my favorite lace looks for the office below.

I try to set aside a few minutes a week to challenge myself to think of new outfits using pieces I already have in my closet. I am weirdly a creature of habit and put many outfits on repeat. While this may come as a surprise to you, given that I love fashion and style, I find myself so busy I rarely have time to think of what to wear until the last minute. I know I am not alone in this predicament so here is a tip I figured out in recent years, one of the easiest ways to come up with new outfits is to purchase solid colored pieces so you can mix and match clothing more easily and innovatively. This is definitely a way to save time, dollars and create fresh looks for the instafamous lives we all lead these days.
Create the same look with these pieces:

Springtime is all about flowers and I think it is the best time to embrace a floral print. I have mentioned before that you should be cautious when picking a print. You definitely don’t want to pick something too busy or for the print to overwhelm you and most importantly your audience.
I’m personally always drawn to the brightest, busiest print I see, but I make myself find something that didn’t catch my eye immediately. This is how I know I will be able to carry off the print and the print won’t carry me!
