I've finally come down from the shades of blue high I've been on the past few days. One day I wore a royal blue I guess you'd call it, another turquoise, then back to cobalt. WTH? Lol You know what that means...Back to Black!

I thought I'd add a bit more texture with today's look by wearing leather and lace with my belted trouser. Lace can be very sexy especially for work so I toned it down by wearing a high-waisted pant, less lace showing, and of course a black tank underneath the top. Now if it was a night out, all rules go out the window ;-)  This particular lace top, from Express, is tasteful either way because it isn't tight fitting at all. I know it's hard to tell because it's tucked it. But it actually has a boxy trapeze like shape when out. I bought it one size too big because I wanted the fit to be a bit loose. I almost bought two sizes larger but changed my mind...what I envisioned was wearing the top with leggings or super skinny jeans. I decided not to because then it would look too oversized to wear with an outfit like this!

Here are some other lovely lace tops I'm eyeing. Enjoy!
