The Casual Printed Long Top and Lace-up Ballet Flats

Top // Leggings // Shoes

Ahhh..to be in a tropical paradise....Although this top made me feel like it, this is just a nice spot in SCV (Santa Clarita Valley) on a beautiful day, not the Bahamas. So let's chat about those cute little lace up numbers that are so popular right now. This pair I love although I found that they are not great on thicker legs and had to be...modified. I laced them all the way up my calf and gasped in horror as they made them look like meat in a "sausage casing." We are talking not a good look ladies if you have larger ankles and calves. Oy vey! Not one to give up...I then tried the "wrap many times around the ankle" look and didn't think it looked to bad. But then I untied them and tied them in back and they looked much better! Winner winner chicken dinner! I took some pictures with them laced around my ankles then I cut them and tied them in back and took more pics. I know I will wear them more with the shorter laces during the hot temps! Love this top from Ruby Rd. it's so soft and comfortable and covers the butt really well while not overwhelming my petite frame! Well I'm off to sit by the pool and drink a fruity tropical drink....Actually I don't have a pool so that's watching TV in my house with my dogs and hubby! Have a great week and thanks for stopping by my little slice of paradise ~ Corki

 

 

With the laces......

Laces are cut and tied in a bow in the back!

See how the laces cut the leg off...

Laces are cut and the line of the leg is longer....

Do I look taller? What? No! What the heck!?
