Workwear Wednesday: Lacy Details

workwear wednesday- lacey details 4Happy Hump Day and Workwear Wednesday! Thankfully, it has still been warm enough for clothing like this, and I am seriously hoping it sticks! I snagged this blouse recently from Banana Republic during their Friends and Family sale.
I have worn the top with a floral skirt and also with this dress. Yes, this is a dress, which I have had for quite a while, and I decided to use it as a skirt. I think the lace overlay in the skirt is such a pretty detail, and I thought it would give a little more edge to the top. I paired this lace peplum top with it to bring a different lace texture to the outfit and to break up the shape of the outfit. I love a good peplum top, and find them to be quite suitable for curvy women.
How do you feel about peplum? Have you/would you wear a dress as a skirt? I have only done it a handful of times! The dress is still available from the Mint Julep Boutique, but I have linked just skirts below as well, just in case you want some other options.

    I love adding a blouse over a fitted dress like this to make it even more versatile as a skirt. Your top from Banana is perfect for it. The red heels are such a good combo. Great creative styling!

    Thanks for your sweet words on my blog. You are the best and such a great encourager! The comments were actually on a repost of an outfit of mine by a brand I wore. Ultimately the brand deleted the post. I tried not to take it too personally because I think it was more about the outfit than me (but I loved the outfit!). It’s funny how people think it’s okay to say such rude things.

    What a stunning look! I am such a fan of versatility, as you’ve shown here with the dress worn as a skirt, it’s one of my favourite things to do. I adore your textured peplum top, and you look lovely. Wishing you a great rest of the week. /Madison x

    Wearing a dress as a top or skirt seems to be on trend now and it’s a great way to get more wear out of your wardrobe too. You look great, Denise and I would have never guessed it was a dress!

    Nigel: you’re lucky to have experienced the olde-worlde bearded-lady greeters before they were replaced, years back now. Today instead you get ovuerrodecpd, tanned, toned and oiled young men and women clad only in small scraps of leather. They still have stockwhips, but these are diamond studded, to match the leather collars and tiaras (worn by both sexes).

    Sur la Garonne il arrive lorsque le niveau d'eau augmente qu'ils se réfugient sur d'autres plans d'eau … le temps et une diminution du débit est le signal de leur retour toutefois après un tel chamboulement ils se déplacent un peu pour retrouver une zone plus"confortable" Ils sont hélas aussi chassés car ils "détruisent" les digues et autres bords de cours d'eau aménagés

    ”Ni beklagar sorgen for de narstaende” och ”ni tar starkt avstand fran kriminellt beteende”.Och det snoar i helvetet. Det ar en sak att saga en sak och en helt annan att mena det. Det ar ett ynkligt forsok till alibi nar ni i sjalva verket njuter av nyheterna att Sverigedemokrater dor eller misshandlas. Det ar inte svaart att lasa mellan raderna. Men det ar klart, ni ar ju de goda och Sverigedemokraterna de onda oavsett garningar.
