Some pieces are just timeless. Today’s outfit is a perfect example of just that. Lace and pearls is just as classic a combo as peanut butter and jelly. And recently I have been reaching in to the depths of my closet for such pieces. Every single time I find something i haven’t worn in awhile and decide to rework it I applaud myself. When you can consistently become inspired by a piece you already own, know you have made a wise investment.
Take this outfit by Free People for example. I can’t count how many times i have been able to wear these shorts. And this top! I’ve always had a thing for vintage pieces and it doesn’t get any more classic vintage than a top with pleats and lace. I initially got it to pair with some purple shorts but decided after that it was too purple even for Barney. Alas, almost 2 years after this investment it still looks perfect with my favorite black lace shorts. And how often in the history of fashion have we seen this epic look envisioned? Whether it was a rebel from the roaring twenties or an eighties pop queen like Cindy Lauper, sometimes girls just wanna have fun in some lace and pearls.
