Lace & Polka-Dots

A good friend of mine helped took these photos of me during a really fun rooftop BBQ with friends. Thank you, Nureen! A Canon G11 was used for these pics, whereas my blog pics are usually taken with a Canon T2i. (If anyone notices a difference...)

I posted this photo on Instagram recently stating that I had a lot more trouble styling these off-white lace shorts than the black pair. I decided to go with a white blouse here to for a softer colour palette.

unbranded lace shorts (similar here, here, & here)
This blouse isn't that sheer, so a white or skin-coloured bra alone would be fine with it; however, I did wear a white bandeau in this case because I left the top unbuttoned for a more casual feel.
These shorts have been worn less than a handful of times because I've always been clueless on what to wear them with. Nothing in my wardrobe really goes with it (imo), but since it's summer, I've been experimenting with it. In fact, I think I might do a "how to style lace shorts" blog posts soon. : )

How would you wear these shorts? If I use your idea, I will definitely credit you!

  1. I like the monochromatic color palette you have here :)

    I think those lace shorts would look cute with a chambray top too! I've discovered that chambray seems to go with everything.

  4. I'm obsessed with your shorts! It can be worn dressy with heels or casual, so versatile! I think you styled it perfectly with that touch of polka dot. :)
