texture mixing

Stella and Dot Giveaway

lace, Loft
sequins, Similar
I picked up this lace top from Loft and want to wear it everyday but it’s still winter and there are holes in it.
It’s pretty much the perfect lace shirt. I bought one from Madewell last year, but I haven’t been totally happy with the “cropped” feature. I’m just not sure it’s flattering on me!

So, to my sister it goes!

What I love about this lace top is you can layer almost any pattern or texture underneath it without it being over powering. The sequins on the tank top are a subtle color, and really only peek out near the bottom or when light hits through one of the lace holes. 
I wore it with a navy blue polka dot tank for the Loft event, and loved that look too.

So break out of that comfortzone girl! Layer some of the most unusual patterns or textures, and see what you think.

You might surprise yourself.

Oh, what a great idea! Whenever I see a sequin tank I like, I pass over it b/c I’m not sure how to style it…now I know!

That is a super cute outfit!!! I have never shopped loft. Are the clothes true to size or would you suggest sizing up or down?? I don’t have one nearby so I would have to order online!

Adrienne says · 02.05.13

It’s so gorgeous!!!!!! I love it with the hint of sparkles peaking through 😀

Amy Lambert says · 02.05.13

Love the mix of textures! I’ve been eyeing that top at Loft, too, and they just emailed me a 25% coupon. I think it’s time to pull the trigger on that! How did you do your hair? Is this from the softly curled tutorial?

Kristina says · 02.05.13

Love the layering here! My lace top like that disintegrated so I’m on the hunt for a new one.

I’m ashamed to admit this on your blog because I know how you feel about Loft, but I’ve never been inside of one and wasn’t even aware we had one close by [embarrassed face], but I must go and try on this shirt! I love it!

Kelly says · 02.05.13

I got this shirt after seeing it on your blog last week 🙂 I never would have picked it out myself but I really love it. So thank you because I so am not brave lol!

I did get it in the petites size (even though I never shop in that section) because it was pretty boxy. Just a tip if anyone else had the same problem 😉

I bought this top a few weeks ago and am OBSESSED with it. Hadn’t thought of layering it with sequins – love it!

Allie says · 02.06.13

I have never shopped at the loft! Apparently I need to!!! I love this!!! I’m a bit wide framed so shopping at new stores really intimidates me!!! Looking beautiful as always!

Magda Pomichowski says · 02.06.13

I have been playing around with mixing textures, patterns and pops of color and I love it. I use to have a no more then 2 colors in one outfit rule but this is so much more fun! Thanks for sharing this!

love this 🙂

Erin says · 02.06.13

I just stumbled upon your blog a day or two ago and I’ve already fallen in love rather quickly. I went out and bought that Maybelline Whispers “Pin Up Peach” and LOVE it.. and now I see this outfit that you’re wearing today and wish it was mine! You look so beautiful! Very delicate and classy but also young and fresh! Can’t wait to continue to follow along!

Valeska Mengert says · 03.01.13

I love love love this top! And the idea of gold sequins underneath. Looks so everyday elegant (if that makes sense?)

White Coat Wardrobe says · 04.30.13

I own this top and never thought to pair it with sequins! BRAVO kate! 🙂

To date, mens glasses make the most of this kind of scantiness and make all of their method to the highest ranking regarding men’s favourite embellishment in one cerebrovascular event.
