Comfort Zone

{What I'm Wearing: Blouse—Anthropologie "Tulip Lace Shell" (shop), Jeans—AG "Stevie Ankle (similar // remixed), Earrings—Anthropologie (shop), Watch—DKNY (similar), Wedges—Cathy Jean}
The summer heat must be getting to me, because the other day I went rogue and wore this sheer lace blouse to my internship...with no camisole, no cardigan, no nothing! At my office, the dress code is fairly lenient and people pretty much wear whatever they want—ranging from dressed up pencil skirts to cut-off denim shorts and wedges. But, for me, wearing this sheer lace blouse with no lining was very out of character.

However, I must admit, this airy top was definitely a great way to beat the 90 degree heat and I think it's good for me to step out of my style comfort zone and try new things. Plus, I thought my favorite (and only...) purple pants would be the perfect piece to offset the sheerness of my top. And who doesn't love wearing purple pants? Actually probably a lot of people...but I'm just going to answer my own question and say NO ONE!!

Happy Friday!

  2. As I was skimming through your photos I was thinking about whether or not you could wear this top backwards, with the sheer part on your back?  I wouldn't be brave enough to go rogue and wear it the way you did but would probably be brave enough to wear it the other way though.  Loving the dusty purple of your jeans!  

  3. If you didnt mention, I actually didn't notice it's a bit see through. The pretty lace pattern pretty much covers it well! And yes, great color pants definitely go well with it!

  4. oh cool idea! I will definitely have to try that out and see how it goes!
