One piece that haven't seen daylight in a while is this Free People Miltered Lace Top in Magenta.
Now, now, I know what you are all thinking...that looks like lingerie, you can't wear that out! Challenge accepted! (How I Met Your Mother reference)
Since today is a work day, I also need to make it work-appropriate. Too much lace may look too grandma-y, or as my hubby describes it, look like a doily. Also, most people know me as not a lacy/girly/romantic person, so I need to make it work for my personality. Here are the rules I followed:
1. Use it as a layering piece
2. If I am wearing the lace top on the outside, make sure there is a tank or something underneath so that I don't look like I just walked out of the bedroom.
3. Wear a plain tee/tank on the outside and have the lace peek out from the bottom (I got this idea from a friend of mine). The tank should not have too much print on it or it will get too busy.
4. Balance it out with more edgy pieces, like distressed jeans, chunky shoes, metal jewelry.

Follow these rules and you will be able to make take the full advantage of lace without looking like you just walked out of your bedroom.
