Concrete Catwalk // Laid-back Lace

July 30, 2012

I’ve had this little lace dress for years, but I don’t reach for it very often because I always think of it as the perfect piece for things like baby showers & birthday brunches.  Keep reading to see how I styled it for a more laid-back look, and check out the special link to see the blast from the past and how I wore it last!

As promised, check out how I wore this feminine frock over two years ago with edgy leather and cobalt blue heels!   Which way is your favorite – Comfy and casual or rock & roll glam?
