Lace tunic, Chloe + Isabel, and a Night Out

Sunnies: Tom Ford | Necklace: Chloe + Isabel c/o | Bag: Foley + Corinna | Top: Bobeau (optionoption)  | Lace Tunic: ExpressBracelet: Chloe + Isabel c/o | Leggings: Express (option, option, option)  | Sandals: Sam Edelman

I was so excited when I saw this lace tunic from Express. Remember that post last year when I had to rig my lace tank under my sweater to make it long enough to cover my bits? Well, this lace tunic solves that problem forever. I know they make those shirt extender thingies that give the same effect, but well, it's nice to have a real tunic. Plus I can see myself layering this over stuff too, or wearing it on its own - so many choices! I got the idea of layering a tee over lace from Adri's post here. It makes for an effortless and packable look!


Right before I left for California, I got the cutest package from Rosezanne, a merchandiser for Chloe + Isabel. This was the perfect jewelry to travel with, and versatile as well - I wore the bracelet with my tea party dress yesterday also! I had always wanted to try Chloe + Isabel jewelry, so I was extra excited when Rosezanne asked if she could send me some pieces to try in exchange for a review. Needless to say, I'm very pleased and will definitely be looking to see what else I can add to my collection! I hope you'll visit her online boutique and find some goodies for yourself, especially since the Semi-Annual sale is in effect! And yes, while she did graciously gift me these items, all opinions expressed are my own.


I wore this outfit our first full day in California. Not only were we celebrating my sister's shower, but my dad's and mom's birthdays were last Wednesday and Thursday, respectively. My sister made us reservations at Fig & Olive on Melrose Place in West Hollywood. It was amazing - the ambiance, the food, the service, the company!


And to end this photo heavy post (sorry I'm not sorry), I thought I'd share some family photos. Even though we were barely in town for 48 hours, we were able to fit a lot in, and it's always great to be with them. The next time I'll be back, I'll have a nephew!

  5. Ohh $#*%. I have seen that lace tunic in store but avoided it because, you know, I just bought three lace tanks. But I am seeing how the TUNIC length could have some different styling options. Like I want to wear it over my leather leggings stat. Sigh. Well, you look great, your family is adorable!! Your dad is so trendy in his baseball tee. :)

    1. Haha! Was wondering what you thought about the tunic bc we had never talked about it before. When I saw it online, I jumped on it. I've been looking for something similar forever. Seriously forever.
      Just saying. You may regret it....

    2. Thanks, girl! It's a very comfy tunic! Lace can be itchy, but this is more of a knit and therefore perfect!

  15. I love the way you layer the lace tank under something. I have a really similar tank that I neverrrrr wear because I wasn't sure what to do with it - def trying this! Your post makes me SO nostalgic about LA. I never miss it until I read about it...

    1. Yay - I hope you are able to find use for yours now! LA is great. We go there a lot for holidays but in all honesty, don't go to areas like this - so this was a lot of fun for me!
