I hope you had a wonderful and memorable 4th of July! This was my first 4th of July with two kids and we enjoyed spending the day together. We relaxed, ate lots of watermelon, and when it cooled down a bit outside we went swimming. It was a great holiday!
In the summertime especially, I wear a lot of white and bright colors but anytime is a good time to wear black—add lace and pleats and you have a sophisticated summer combination like this black lace skirt. Temperatures are in the steady 90’s here in California and heavy fabrics get pretty unbearable so when it comes to skirts and dresses, I prefer light fabrics and this skirt fits the bill. I rounded up some more sophisticated summer pieces featuring black lace below, including this skirt in pink!
