Add a Little Lace

lace neutral top from express

It’s not always easy to find cute women’s professional clothing. You want to be taken seriously, but you also want to be able to express your style. I love this outfit because it does just that. The lace and embroidered appliqué give it a delicate look, and the pairing of neutrals and black give it a professional edge. I bought my embroidered top at Express at their last big sale (around June of 2014). It was originally around $70, but the sale marked it down to $25 (and then I had some rewards points that brought it to $15).


I dressed it up with one of my favorite pairs of shoes that I bought at Belk’s during a vacation to North Carolina. They are by a company called French Connection and they are super comfortable and go with just about everything. The original price of the shoes was close to $200, but Belk’s was having a huge sale and they came out to less than $45.
