Summer Nights :: Black Lace & Leopard Accents

Happy Labor Day! I hope everyone's enjoying their long weekend (and doing lots of shopping to snag some awesome Labor Day weekend sales)!! I've already gone shopping twice (yes, we can all reiterate again my terrible shopping habits which will probably never change), and have found some amazing deals! Check out Zara (sale times from $9.90-$29.90) and Club Monaco (extra 50% off sale items) - made some great purchases there that I'm super excited for!

For today's post, I wanted to share this beautiful Free People dress I bought earlier this summer. For me, this isn't just any other lace dress because the lace on this dress is gorgeous and great quality, plus I love the hemline! The V-cut is pretty unique and I haven't seen this on another lace dress before. I kept the entire outfit very monotone, but mixed in a calf hair leopard print bow belt and a little sparkle on the neckline. Ironically, I mentioned in my last post how I don't like wearing black in the summer, but I needed to find a day to wear this dress before it got chillier and I'd have to cover up the lace detailing on the sleeves with a blazer or overcoat. How do you see this dress being styled for fall??

Let me know in the comments below! Thanks for reading!! :)
