My husband gave my quite the stare when I decided to wear this look downtown. He thinks that this outfit is way too fancy, and while lace in itself does have the reputation of being fancy — it simply doesn’t get chicer than a lace ensemble. I decided that you can certainly wear it out in the daylight (proving that it’s not just for a night out!).

There are my ways to style your lace skirt, from slouchy sweaters (think fall!) to classic button-downs, or a in my case, a chic tank top blouse; lace skirts of any length have proven to be a versatile piece that works for pretty much any occasion — even for a day downtown.

How about you?! How would you style this look? Let me know by commenting below, and be sure to check out my favorite lace skirts below!

PS: This is Round #2 featuring my favorite places in Chicago! These pictures were taken at Millennium Park which is the place to be during summer! We have tons of free concerts going on so, be sure to have a picnic there one of these days, and who knows?! Maybe we’ll meet each other there!

As always, thanks much for reading & have a wonderful Wednesday!

Much love.

    Black! I love it! I wear mine in f/w with a sweater and boots and for now with a jeans blouse and sandals. I love a black lace skirt, very feminine and because of the black, I think it s a bit dramatic, which I like!

    I love the skirt so much, so stylish and perfect for any time of year!
    Have a lovely day 🙂

    Millennium Park looks great, dear V., and you look stunning with this fantastic lace skirt! Why not wearing it downtown and during daylight? I think you did it well, it all looks great! I loved the sandals, they seem to be comfortable! As usual, you look super sweet and feminine and I always love to see your pictures! Hugs and regards!

    Such a gorgeous skirt Vanessa! I could totally see how gorgeous it would be styled with a white button down shirt for a more laid back look! Your silk black top is gorgeous too, very chic look!

    As a person who pretty much always fancy lace pieces, this is one of my favourites. It also looks quite versatile too. <3 x/Madison

    You look absolutely beautiful, Vanessa! I adore your lace skirt, it’s gorgeous, and because it’s black, you’ll get plenty of use out of it (love pieces like that!). I’m loving the blush contrast with the overlay as well, such a pretty touch! Thanks so much for sharing, beautiful, and I hope you’re having the most amazing week so far!

    That skirt is beautiful! It reminds me of the Self Portrait dresses that are gorgeous, but a little out of my price range. I like your idea of pairing it with a sweater for fall!


  22. June 29, 2016 / 2:22 PM

    You styled this perfectly, Vanessa! It’s dressy enough but not overly dressy…if you know what I mean. Haha! You are such a fashionista!
