All Laced Up - The Lace Bodysuit

That Stella McCartney lace bodysuit keeps catching my eye. I have absolutely no idea why, as it is just so far from the realms of what I could or would want to wear. But I love the texture and intricate detail of lace, it contrasts so well with the body con style of the bodysuit.

Then I spotted this Lace insert jumpsuit from LCF grad Simon Preen's debut collection which is exclusively at Urban Outfitters. A much more affordable option than Stella's but again, far too daring for me and just wouldn't suit me. But it got me thinking about layering and this could work well for me if layered with some other clothes - actually though some lace leggings and a body would have much the same effect if not quite as streamlined but would cost a bit less.

Then I discovered these leggings again by Simon Preen - finally a great way for me to get in on this trend in a way that suits me and my budget. I think I am in love.

I think they would look great with this lace v body and this tulip skirt layered over them for a lace outfit that is not too bodycon. Hmm definitely a possibilty for my very limited clothes budget.tulip skirt

I honestly love all these pieces. Lace and bodysuits are two of my favorite things - put together, they're genius!
