In case you haven't notice, I love anything which has prints on it. See this post and this one. For me, prints put an extra oomph on your outfit and gives a what seems to be dull outfit its much needed push. Now wearing lace is another thing. If wearing prints gives one that fierce look, I think lace gives that girly, sexy feel. As much as I love these two styles, I'm not a fan of mixing patterns. But I loved how this outfit turned out. I think it's just proper to wear it on the first day of classes when I need all the push I can get to jumpstart my last school year in law school.
I think the trick is just to put everything in moderation. Just the right amount of lace and prints, right?:)
