The Tiny Heart: Mix It Mondays: Lace Peplum Tank

Mix It Mondays: Lace Peplum Tank





Vest-Decree (similar Velvet Cargo Vest), Top-Aeropostale (similar Nicole Miller Lace Peplum Tank), Shorts-American Eagle (similar American Eagle Denim Shorts), Sandals-American Eagle (similar Fergalicious Sandals), Bag-H&M (similar Forever 21 Satchel), Watch-Fossil (similar Fossil Perfect Boyfriend Watch), Gold Initial Bracelet

While I love living at the beach, one of the drawbacks is that it's extremely crowded here on weekends in the summer. I usually take all my blog photos on the weekend, which means it's now really hard to find a quiet spot. I figured the nearby beach town of Spring Lake would be empty by the lake on this cloudy day. Nooope, I pulled up and saw a bridal party taking wedding photos. Thankfully the lake is pretty big and this bridge was free (minus a few people bicycling by). 

Today I'm remixing my white lace peplum tank. I decided to toughen it up by pairing it with my go-to cargo vest. I last wore it with a yellow cardigan and bright statement necklace in the spring.

  8. The summer crowds can be a big problem! I can totally relate. Love how you've paired white lace with the cargo vest, they play off each other so nicely!

  11. I love the jewels on the vest! And your pictures have been great lately. Doesn't the DSLR make a huge difference? I'm just trying to figure out how to change the settings on manual to get more out of my camera. I did just order a new lens......

  14. You look so cute! I love the girly tank with the more edgy vest-and I mean any vest with some bling on it is a winner in my book :)

  15. I love this lace peplum so much! It looks great with the utility vest! I hate when I choose a spot in my mind for pictures and it turns out to be full of people. Glad you could find a quiet spot!

  17. I like both ways you styled it, but I think this one is my favorite. That is fun way to make the top a little less sweet. You look great!
