Spend or Save: Lace Hem

You're probably aware of the insanely hot temperatures we're experiencing in L.A.  Since taking outfit pictures is pretty much the last thing I want to do when it's 100 degrees outside, I decided to put together another "Spend or Save" post.  
You know I love a good lace hem, and this gem from Forever 21 is a great alternative to the way more expensive version by Clu Too.  Not bad for $20, right?  So what do you say...spend or save?

Basic Remix

Gap jacket (old), F21 top, Ash sneakers, random brand shorts (found at Ross), Hermes bag
If there's anyone who loves a good closet clean out it's me.  I recently did a major closet purge and boy did it feel good.  I can officially say that my closet is filled with timeless basics that I can continue to build on.   One thing that I can't rid of though, is my cargo jacket I bought at the Gap about 4 years ago.  It's the perfect layering piece for those not quite hot yet not quite cold days.  Since I love remixing my wardrobe, I decided to pair it with my favorite lace hem shorts, a lightweight knit top (LOVE this one from F21) and slip on sneakers.

Endless Summer

J.Crew jacket, Monrow tee, Mossimo shorts, Converse sneakers, Linea Pelle bag c/o
It seems as if we're experiencing an endless summer here in L.A.  The days have been hotter than ever with no relief in sight (sigh).  To say that I'm over the heat is a major understatement.  So until the temps decide to cooperate, I'll just have to continue wearing my favorite warm weather basics.
