I've been singing the praises of lace trim tops for a few months now. They look so pretty on their own, paired with jeans or a black skirt. I think they also work well in colder months though - when the design is down the middle of the shirt, you can still get a peek of the lace from underneath a blazer or a open coat. (All my shopping picks below were selected with this trick in mind!) Do you buy tops with multiple seasons in mind? Would you wear Eva's outfit? (Her jacket and pink top were the starting point to my own outfit!)
Jacket: LOFT, $43 (similar, similar, similar)

Approx. dates: Shoes are 8 years ago. Earrings are 4 years ago. Skirt, top and jacket are last summer/fall. Purse is this winter.
