So this BCBG lace bralette and skirt was my first outfit at Coachella, sans jacket because of the ridiculous but expected desert heat. I didn't document it at the time, but I knew I'd be wearing this many times over for the summer to come. The lace skirt is a great throw-on piece for the season; it's complete with a classic, preppy A-line shape updated with a simple pleats and a high waist for a sweet but grown-up look. BCBG did it right with creating a matching lace bralette with a flattering sweetheart neckline. I chose to mix the colors (it came in coordinating white on white or black on black) because the contrast caught my eye. Broke a fashion rule of pairing brown with black (hate fashion rules, they should be nonexistent!) with my suede blazer jacket thing to tone down the skin and enhance the neutral textures. 

I also must add that one of my favorite looks or trends is a high waist paired with a crop top or bralette - it's super fun and flirty and I love that the high waist only shows the part of your stomach that always stays in good shape. It's another fantastic illusory trend that will work for anyone!

P.S. one of my favorite stores, Madison LA, is having a huge warehouse sale starting tomorrow May 2nd through May 5th where everything designer (see Alexander Wang, Marni, Rag & Bone, etc.) is up to 80% off!  M-Sat 11-7pm and Sun 12-5pm. Check out more info here. See you there!?
