Crochet & Pom Pom Beach Coverup

I am missing Lagos today! It was two weeks ago that I was there, and it was a dream place. The sun was HOT though. For the gorgeous rocky beaches, I paired this black crochet and pom pom beach coverup with a Panama hat, and a new straw tote that I bought in the local town. Eye protection is important too, and my clear framed mirrored sunnies completed the look. I think that a cute beach coverup is a staple in any woman’s closet. They come in handy more than you might think!

In terms of the beach, the seashells were on point! Had so much fun looking for shells and even made a friend doing so.

Lace Dress of the Year

The dress of this year, and arguably the brand of this year is Self Portrait’s Azaelea dress (seen in the top pic below). This intricate lace spaghetti strap dress was seen on everyone from celebrities to fashion bloggers. The original dress has a fitted bodice and a girly flared tea-length hem, with a nude slip underneath the lace. This dress can be worn from summer garden parties with open-toe wedges to winter holiday parties with closed-toed pumps. This dress can even be dressed down by being paired with a leather jacket (leather and lace is one of my favorite combos). While red is perfect for the holidays, I’ve seen this dress style available in mint, yellow, baby blue, and white. I actually purchased a white version that I haven’t had a chance to wear yet but I plan to wear it this spring / summer. I’ve selected a few similar red options below (LRD!), at different price points, with the lowest price around $32! Further comparisons can be found here. Now everyone can find an option to jump on this Self Portrait lace dress trend.
