Have you ever put together an outfit that makes you feel damn good? You know the one that puts a little extra pep in your step? This was one of those outfits for me. I went out on a mission to find the perfect look for my 32nd birthday (ugh I’m old), something fun, yet still sort of age appropriate and after scouring most stores are the mall found everything I was looking for at Free People. For some reason that store just gets me, it’s relaxed boho/hippie vibe resonates with me.
So I am sure you have noticed that the lace up trend is definitely a thing. I must admit, I was a little hesitant of trying it out when it first appeared but I had a change of heart after a recent visit to Free People. I spotted this blue print top and even though the plunging neckline made me a bit nervous I decided to give a try anyway. After I found the right bra to go along with it, I felt much more comfortable with the deep V. I paired it up with a patch-work suede skirt and I had a match made in birthday heaven. Which also made me feel a little bit better about turning 32.
So if you have been a bit hesitant to try out the lace up trend, toss your fears aside and don’t be afraid to take the plunge! I have listed this top shown and some of my other favorites below, just scroll down to the bottom to get to shopping!
