Hey guys! Today I'm doing a little collaboration with the lovely Lauren of Fizz & Frosting. We both wanted to show you all how we're wearing lace this Spring. I'm sure you fellow fashion bloggers have noticed, but lace is a huge trend right's just so pretty & feminine, and it softens up any ensemble. I mean really, who doesn't feel like a pretty little thing in some lace?

 I decided to pair my white lace skirt with some bright colors and espadrilles for a fun and flirty Spring/Summer look (watch out boys, wink wink). In the past I've also paired the same skirt with sneakers and a denim jacket for a more casual vibe, or toughened up a lace top with some slouchy boyfriend jeans.

And Lauren...well, doesn't she look fabulous?! I LOVE how she paired those gorgeous lace shorts with a chambray shirt. Plus, those nude sandals make her legs look SO long right?! Check out Lauren's post about lace here!

So I guess our point is this...wearing a little lace can really add a touch of something beautiful to any outfit. Kind of like Ryan Gosling does to the movies he's in :)


And yes, I have a double feature for you guys today because I had a little extra time on my hands last night (blame it on my DVR being mostly empty...wah). Anyway, I've been looking for the perfect bag to bring on our trip to Ireland in July...something cute and casual that I can fit (a bunch of) snacks in and that doesn't cost hundreds of dollars. Of course I came across quite a few that were awesome, but cost 1/3 of our plane ticket. So I hopped on over to ShoeDazzle and started browsing my little heart out.

Psssh, and you thought ShoeDazzle was just for shoes! They have some of the cutest and most affordable bags I've come across, and I can't WAIT to buy one for our trip. Here are some of the ones I'm loving:

Now if only I could get the hubs to understand why I absolutely DO need a new bag for our trip and can't possibly use one of my old ones...
