These pom-pom lace shorts are a girly and fun piece to wear. I bought them a size up, so I could wear them lower on my waist, and have them be a bit longer. I can see these pom-pom lace shorts on a teenager looking great in the shorter length , especially on the beach! I found them recently at TJ Maxx, and they just made me smile. The next time I wear them, I will be at the beach! :)
I walked to Sutton Place in Manhattan, a lovely and quick walk and stopped in a few places to test the light. It was mid day, so full sun can be challenging! Here are two photos that are mid-block on a quiet street. The quiet put me in a zen sort of place. Ah, sunshine!
This was an easy and enjoyable outfit to wear. My faux large pearl choker came from Paris! I found my cute flower shaped messenger bag from a Long Island thrift store. What a sweet little bag to carry this spring! ( the bag was only $6.00 !) My shoes are Prada and are old, but still very much on trend. I like the hardware on the shoes to add a bit of edge. A better look:
I found that Polyvore had the best selection of any sort of lace or embroidered shorts. I like that you can select the color with Polvore, so that you get much better search results. I am not providing a link, I know you know how to search Polyvore!
I love lace and macrame shorts, or even denim shorts trimmed with lace or crochet. The extra layer of texture and femininity can be a sweet detail. I love that these shorts are lined; that is important to me in such a sheer color. I would love to wear lace shorts with a denim shirt, or a suede tee, something essentially plain, with a touch of boyishness. I would enjoy that contrast. Maybe next time. I also think flats are the best choice for footwear with lace shorts. Ballet flats, flip-flops, sneakers, or brogues. I can also see a chunky sweater paired with these lace shorts.
So ladies, are embroidered lace shorts on your wish list? I like the pom-pom trim on these, but my favorite thing about them is delicate work, and the full lining, -and that they are not too short. Also, there are some very cute high-waisted ones on Polyvore. If you bought a pair of lace shorts, how would you style them?
Happy week lovelies!
