So Fall started and I don't even know how to act. However, I'll be completely honest, I don't normally shop for fall. I always use my Spring/Summer items and layer them with a cute jacket. This scenario was no different.

Thanks to Grace & Lace, I was able to score my gorgeous Misto Lavo top that works for night-outs, random dinners, and casual meetings. Not only was it comfortable, the color texture of it allows you to mix and match with different articles. Of course, the lace on the top can cause anyone to think it's too intimate for a meeting, but it's the subtly of it that makes it even more appropriate.

I decided to compliment the blouse while bringing out its various colors with white jeans and the black boots (scored from JustFab) for contrast. People say you can't wear stripes and florals together, but I beg to disagree. With this super cute coat from Uniqlo, I was able to complete the ensemble and provide a flawless look. 
(PS: The smaller + tighter the stripes, the better)

Sometimes, you just have to step out of the box. This outfit not only boosted my confidence, it opened my mind to try things a little bit differently and just maybe, I'll love the outcome. I'm not a fan of lace outside of the bedroom but Grace + Lace made me a believer. 

What's your favorite lace article in your arsenal? Do you wear it to meetings?
