OOTD - Black Lace Shorts


A woman of 30 in shorts?  Say it 'aint so! As I've mentioned before in numerous posts, if there's a rule book for fashion than I must have misplaced my copy.  My guiding principals for personal style revolve around dressing in a way that makes you feel good.  Granted, I'm not one to typically chose shorts; as a pear shaped gal, I've learned to stay away from them - that is, until I spotted these black lace babies.  I love how the black lace detail on the trim of the shorts gives them a really unique and beautiful finish.  To make the outfit fit within my comfort zone, I chose to pair the black lace shorts with an oversized neutral sweater.  If I'm ever out grabbing cocktails on a Friday night in the summer, this is typically what you would find me wearing.

What are your thoughts on the black lace shorts?  If you find shorts as uncomfortable to wear as I do, try pairing them with an oversized sweater.  I think you'll be pleased with the results!

  7. I love this look! I like how you wore an over sized blazer and then incorporated a little edge with the black lace shorts. Loving your blog!
