Peek-A-Boo Lace

When I saw these lace shorts peeking out from another pair of shorts last week at American Apparel, I knew they had to be mine.  I feel like there is something so risqué about them, yet they are just a sheer layer of lace to spruce up any pair of old shorts.   I love how they just peek out to say hello.  With the peek-a-boo lace, I chose to pair denim cutoff shorts, a long blazer and nude heels.  What do you think of my pairing?









Lace undershorts: American Apparel
Denim cutoffs: True Religion (similar)
Top: Forever 21 (sold out, similar here & here)
Blazer: Similar
Bag: Louis Vuitton (pochette used as clutch)
Jewelry: Bracelet- Forever 21 (similar); Earrings- Vintage (my grandmother's!!!; similar here & here)

    1. Thank you! The shorts are two separate pieces. The lace ones are sheer lace that is almost like underwear that is purchased just to be worn under a pair of regular shorts. I hope that makes sense. :)
