Lace Statement Tee

We've all heard of the graphic tee, but what about the statement tee? Embellishments such as jewels, embroidery, lace, and fun hemlines take a casual tee to the next level - and there's nothing I love more than being comfy while looking dressy!

 
Top: Free People | Pants: Aeropostale (old) | Pumps: Nine West | Necklace: Mindy Mae's Market | Earrings: Forever 21 | Watch: Akribos XXIV | Bracelets: Forever 21 | Lips: Wet n Wild Ferguson Crest Cabernet

Remember this post that Jaime shared back in September? We both came across this top a billion years ago and stalked it until it went on sale when we each snatched it up in our favorite color. She wore hers this summer with white skinnies while I saved mine for Fall so I could wear it with coated denim.

While I love the unique lace detailing on this peplum tee, it seems it was made for someone with a much shorter torso than I...much shorter. In fact, I had to throw a black camisole on underneath to prevent my skin showing on the sides - no bueno! But alas, it was perfect for a dreary Fall day with a statement necklace and bold lip color.

  5. You look so great!! Being tall--I always have trouble with shirts being long enough, but it looks perfect with the cami you paired with it :) The bling is awesome!

    1. YES, being tall with a super long torso is no fun sometimes! Fortunately, the black cami kind of blended into the pants - you can even see it in the pictures. Thanks for stopping by our blog, Tori!

  15. I like that. The "statement tee". I think I'm gonna use that one. I have been seeing more and more statement tees in the blogosphere and beyond. It's such a cute trend and makes dressing very easy because you don't need a tin of accessories. I live your top!

    Thank you for stopping by the celebrate Southern link up this week. I hope to see you back next week doll! Xoxo
