This post is the first of many that are going to feature looks from my recent trip! I was very lucky to be able to travel to Colorado and New Mexico and to style some fun looks along the way! This look features clothing that I have had for about a year but with a new way to style these pieces. I have posted about this lace top before when I styled it with a pair of capris and a skirt. I have yet to style this top with a pair of shorts until now.
I enjoy wearing a contrasting color under this top so I chose a light purple tank top. Since I had a lot of color going on throughout the top of my outfit, I wanted to keep the bottom of my outfit neutral. I chose a pair of grey shorts from New York and Company that can be dress up or down. I also like to wear these shorts while teaching since they are more professional looking.
As for my shoes, I wore my new favorite pair of white sandals from Material Girl with this look. If you follow me on Instagram, (if you do not you should ;), you would have seen that I posted my favorite sandals from Material Girl in a variety of colors. These sandals are super easy to dress up or down and the match everything! You can style them with shorts, skirts, dresses, jeans, and they come in so many different colors! Recently I have been wearing my white pair a lot which makes me nervous because I do not want to get them dirty! I have been very careful not to step in any dirt so they stay super white and clean looking.
Since the neckline of this blouse is very high I thought it would be fun to style my hair up to show off the beautiful lace pattern in my top. I really only wear my hair up when I am working out but this was a fun change. It was also very hot in Denver that day so keeping my hair off my neck was a good decision.
This look is a great summer professional look or you can wear it during a more causal day as well. It can also be worn from day to night very nicely. Make sure to follow me on Instagram as well and stay tuned for more vacation looks!
