A Lacey Yoke

I have been off the outfit posting map for too long, but I am back, I have clothes and I am determined to post.  Today's look is a combination of pieces old and new.  I received this beautiful lace yoke top courtesy of Sugarlips Apparel, which is a perfect compliment to numerous summer pieces already in my wardrobe.  I have worn the Grandmother's Lace top a couple of times, once over a dress as a vest and the second time is this look here, with a classic pair of denim shorts.  I really like the pairing of the intricate and detailed top with my high waist Old Navy shorts.  The look is very 70's folk singer so I thought my guitar was a fitting accessory for this outfit.  I can definitely see this outfit working for some backyard BBQ's and summer music festivals. Bring on the open road and the summer sunshine, I'm ready!

"I am on a lonely road and I am traveling
Traveling, traveling, traveling
Looking for something, what can it be"

"The only thing I knew how to do
Was to keep on keepin’ on like a bird that flew"

"Well I'm running down the road 
Tryin' to loosen my load 
Got a world of trouble on my mind" 

"Thoughts meander like a
Restless wind inside a letter box
They tumble blindly as they make their way across the universe"
"I was a free man in Paris
I felt unfettered and alive
There was nobody calling me up for favors
And no one's future to decide"
"If I could make days last forever
If words could make wishes come true"

"Catch a cannonball now to take me down the line My bag is sinkin' low and I do believe it's time"
