Lace Top + Leather J. Crew Shorts

Lace Top, J Crew Leather Shorts, Old Navy Bucket Bag, Sage+Sparkle One of my favorite looks this summer is a sheer lace top paired with a print or lace bra - even better when you throw in leather shorts.   I have been looking for the perfect lace top pretty much since the sun came out to play for summer and I finally found it at TJ Maxx. I have been waiting to wear this piece for a few weeks now, but I didn't have the right undergarments.

With a lace top, you need to have a bra that fully covers, yet you don't mind showing a hint of every now and then. I had originally planned to wear with a lace bralette but once trying it on, realized that even with the two together, they were still a little too see-through for my liking.

Then I found this amazing bar at Anthropologie last weekend and have worn it with this top twice since!  The thing with this look is, it's just so easy to wear and instantly adds an "effortless chic" vibe to any look, especially when paired with leather shorts.

So what do you think? How would you wear a lace top like this? If showing hits of your bra is a little to risqué for you, you can also add a cami underneath for added coverage.

Have a wonderful Monday (is there such a thing?) and I'll see you here tomorrow!
