Out to dinner

Just so we are clear, this is not what I wore to work today. This was to dinner on Friday night. I have such a backlog of outfits, long gone are the days when I post the outfit I wore on the day I actually wore it.

This lace top is clearly my item of choice when I want to be a little sexy, but still pretty much covered up. I feel elegant. My Sis, as you know, thinks it makes me look like a trollop, but to each their own.

So yeah, I made the mistake of wearing a lace top actually very similar to this one UNDERNEATH a buttoned blazer to work. Considering you couldn't see anything lacy but the cuffs and hem, I thought I'd be ok. Middle aged male bosses tend to have diarrhea of the mouth when it comes to lace. Never again. Needless to say, you look pretty. Your blog is inspiring as always.

I adore that lace top and those adorable shoes! You are just lovely. Hope you had a lovely Tuesday dear!

Courtney Erin said...

I love this on you! Seriously just the right amount of skin for a dinner out - ladylike but flirty and cute all at the same time! And I'm shocked that you managed to stay on top of the daily outfit posts for as long as you did. I'm proud of myself when I'm a two-three days behind!

I agree about lacy/sheer tops. They are not for everyone, but I totally dig it for the same reasons--it's like innocent sexy. I love your top and the simple black skirt.

Wendy said...

I strongly disagree with your Sis. Your top is beautiful and elegant, your whole outfit is very feminine and classy.

Stefanie said...

Gorgeous! This outfit could not be more perfect!

Ki said...

I agree with Frannie, you look sexy but not over the top! Loving the lace on you :)

I love this lace top and honestly my outfit posts are ALWAYS back logged. I've learned that it's the best way to keep my sanity so never fret about not posting on days that you want to.

This is a great outfit for a Friday night out! I love the contrast between the looser lace top and the slim fit of the skirt. And I think if you threw a cami underneath the top, it'd be business casual appropriate.

Lisa - respect the shoes said...

Love that top! Your whole look is classic and chic!

Style Journey said...

This top is definitely beautiful, sexy, but not too over the top. Love your shoes too :)

Kinsey said...

Trallop? No way! You look great! I love the lace top, it seems so unique yet versatile

Nikki said...

I love it when you wear pencil skirts! so classy! :) x

Loren said...

I do not think you look like a trollop, I'm a big fan of the lacy/shear trend that is happening lately. I think this is the perfect 'elegant sexy' for a date night.
LOVE those shoes.

Rebecca said...

I like the lace top. It is a little sexy, but sometimes that is a good thing.

Ashley said...

Oh you know how much I love that top! I'd totally wear it to work AND dinner out. And everywhere else, for that matter. Glad to hear I'm not the only one with a backlog of outfit pics...

...my last post featured pictures from October 3. That's so bad!

Alex Elizabeth said...

Yeahhhh you can barely even tell, and if you hadn't said anything I probably wouldn't have even noticed there's nothing under the lace. Also, I really love those t-straps. Be a flapper (like me!) for Halloween and wear those, they're perfect!

Amber Blue Bird said...

I love that lace top. Its way sexy but still demure. I remember when you were it to dinner (seems like forever ago!). It looks even better in person.

The Closet Shopper said...
