Favorites of 2013: Lace Tank Remix

Next up in the 2013 recap of my favorite purchases is this lace tank from Target!  I bought this in black as well because I love it so much.  While it is a solid colored top, much like a plain tank or tee, the lace detail makes it much more interesting, making it such a versatile piece in your closet.  I used the black version to illustrate how to effortlessly look put together just by having the right pieces in the post Shabby to Chic.

I think I pretty much always say this when I wear lace, but I never thought I could pull off lace since I didn't feel "girly" enough for it.  But I've realized there's a way to work around that.  I don't have to pair lace with pastels like mint and pink or pair it with flouncy skirts.  My favorite way to wear lace (and apparently the only way I wear lace, according to that remix above) is with pieces that help toughen it up, like leather or military/cargo inspired pieces.

Since I'm in St. Louis looking out at snowy rooftops right now, I'm well aware that it is not the appropriate season for a sleeveless lace top, but I was able to find some anyway.  It's a great piece for summer, spring, a mild fall, and...a San Diego winter.  :)

(On that note, you guys must think I'm absolutely nuts for posting some of the outfits I do when you have temps that are -13!  It feels strange and almost wrong to post this remix while looking out at snow, but I know I'd have no hesitations if I were in San Diego right now!)

  1. What a great top! I love how textures can make simple things more interesting.

  2. I absolutely love your blog, and these remixes are a huge reason why! I love how you incorporate trends like lace into workable, everyday looks. Awesome!

  3. This is great! I love your blog, and I send people here all of the time. I feel like I've had a wardrobe makeover since I found this spot. Thanks!


    Always Adapting

  4. Gorgeous! I love all the different looks with one top :)


  5. Love this! Just pinned this--I have a very similar lace top that is actually short-sleeved, and I wear it ALL the time. I love pairing lace with leather, leopard, or just bright colors. Thanks for the future outfit inspiration!

  6. Very pretty tank top and so versatile too.

  7. So pretty- what a great staple, makes each look so crisp and clean! (Hey, the post is fitting given it's white and I'm surrounded by it here in Chicago!) :-)

  8. I saw this top on the 30% off clearance rack at my Target in the cold North yesterday!

  9. Great remix Audrey!!!!! What a versatile top :) I like that you styled it to wear all year.



  10. I love that lace top and the way that you remix it! I think you could easily layer UNDER it, in addition to the layers on top if you need increased warmth.

    I love the lace top and seeing all the things you can do with it! So creative. And it's not that cold where I am either (although to me it's cold!) so I didn't even think this post was weird in winter.

  12. I bought this lace top (in black and white!) after seeing it here on your blog! Love it!

  13. I love those brown sandals you paired it with.

  14. I have several lace shirts, and I love them to death! I really like the peplum one you featured!

  15. Love the lace detail - such a fun way to spice up a solid tank!


    Enter my current giveaway!

  16. Like Amy mentioned below I've seen your exact tank still at multiple targets here by me in AZ and in multiple colors still. So if anyone is wanting the same one Audrey has give your local target a try, they may still have it too, and possibly on clearance!

  17. Hey Audrey! Just wanted to say that I love how you're including the store name in your item links now. So helpful - thank you. That's all! :)

  18. I have loved that darn lace tank so much, and I even bought it...but it was way too short for me so I had to return it :( I will just admire it on you and hope that I can find something similar this spring that is a little longer for me! I completely agree with you about lace - I'm not a super girly person, and I love the way lace looks with tougher pieces like cargo vests, leather jackets, and skinny jeans with boots. You've knocked it out of the park with all these outfits!
