Lace + Tortoise

Hey all! I am back. Just needed a little break to get a few things in order. I am ready to share a few fun things I have gotten recently. I previewed this on Friday during a little haul but I put a full look together to meet some friends for dinner. 

I have to admit, a social media ad got me on this one. I saw this come up on my feed a couple of times and I clicked on it. Historically Shein has been hit or miss for me but this is a serious hit. I was pleasantly surprised with the quality for the price. I think the black color hides it well, but also the lace is really beautiful. I had a similar top but I could never quite make it work. Lace can be a little rigid but this lays very delicately and pretty. The scalloped neckline is also a nice detail I think. Adds a little something extra around your collar line. For sizing purposes I did size up. I am typically a small but got a medium, in my experience Shein has more of a junior sizing. I might have been able to get away with a small here in the length, but the shoulders might have been snug. In all, I am glad I went with the medium. It's actually fairly long too so you could leave it out over some faux leather or moto leggings or even front knot it. 

I paired this with some BP jeans I got from Nordstrom about a year ago (linked up some similar ones under $100). I pulled out these old mules as well. I am starting to get a little antsy for Fall, am I the only one? This Tess + Tricia necklace I got from Rocksbox (code mymonochromaticlifexoxo for 1st month free!). But I want to highlight these earrings I got from Target. I saw them and feel in love. I really am a huge fan of a tortoise pattern so that was the first thing, but then mixed with the gold was so different. I liked that it's a bit of a statement earring but it's not so big that I can't wear it to work. It complimented the elegance of the shirt so well I had to wear them. Plus who doesn't love an affordable earring?
