Trends this spring season are everything feminine…so this week I will focus on a few of those trends. Let’s begin with lace!
It never seems to leave the fashion scene, but is officially in for Spring/Summer 2011. For us seasoned ladies, however, we have to be careful to not overdo the trend, or it will actually age us. Make sure that you remember “less is more” particularly with lace. Take the trend and modernize it with other pieces.
I was excited to find this lace cardigan at one of my favorite places, Stein Mart. The hint of lace peeking from behind the Chico’s Travelers Cami is actually a hand me down from my late mother-in-law. It is a beautiful full lace, vintage cami which was also handed down to her. I need to remember to take a picture of the full look one day.

My modern touch comes with the Lane Bryant jeggings and the patent shoes….all of the costume jewelry has a hint of vintage. I fear that readers need to get used to seeing the jeggings…they are one of the four pants which currently fit me. Every time I put the baggy ones on, I wince. With the expense of a wedding, it might be a while before I get some new clothing items. But I will do my best to bring variety to the blog.
