Concrete Catwalk // Lace

Lace | Everybody, Everyweari’m a day late on my everybody everywear “lace” challenge,
but i’m thinking those nice gals over there will forgive me.

even wearing a shirt with holes in it was way too warm
(and let’s be honest, the polyblend pants didn’t help either)
so i must confess i ended up in shorts by the end of the day.

p.s. did you see kendi yesterday in the sassy scarf i sent her for the scarf swap?
sign up and you can have a new friend send you a sassy scarf for your very own!

top – thrifted
bralette – forever21
necklace – vintage, thrifted
belt – express
trousers – vintage, thrifted
purse – vintage, thrifted
platforms – fergie, via
bracelets – j. crew & clothing swap

    Super interesting proportions. I especially love the mix of texture – especially on the bottom of your shoes. Lovely Jessie!

    We certainly will accept this for EBEW. Heck, when you make lace look this good, I’d be willing to keep submissions open just for you whenever you get around to posting ;)
    Non-lace related, I love your hair and accessories. And thinking back to my years in Austin, I’m amazing you made it pants for as long as you did!
    Thanks for joining us at EBEW!

    i have to come clean after all of the sweet comments about the top… it’s another one of those XXL finds that i couldn’t resist, and i made it work by knotting in the front and tucking the knot into the pants and then bunching up the sleeves to make it less bulky! now my secret is out!!!
