One of the fall trends I just can’t seem to shake is the lace up trend. It most definitely came from the 70’s, as many of the best trends usually do, in my opinion. When I came across this dress at Crossroads in Pasadena when I was there a little bit ago, I immediate fell in love- I love the floral pattern (not too overwhelming) mixed with the lace-up neck. You can’t really go wrong with the two combined.
I paired the dress with guess what? More lace up. This time, I added some of my most favorite brown lace up heels from The Mint Julep Boutique. I think you might notice a trend on my blog here… Floral dresses and open-toed shoes? Now I guess you know what I’ll be wearing all season.
These photos were taken on Lake Merritt in Oakland. It was my first time visiting the area, and it was wonderful! A lot of different cafes and shops in this area that we explored. If you head to this area, I recommend going into Oaktown Spice Shop for a great selection of fresh cooking and baking spices. It’s the little things (like spices) that get me excited!
