Lace shorts are super in vogue right now. Emily Maynard – the most beautiful, well-dressed Bachelorette in franchise history (I’m pretty sure that is an objective fact) – wore them on a date shortly after her show ended (and shortly before her relationship did) and cemented their place in the closets of trendy girls everywhere.
I’d been half-heartedly looking for a pair for a while, and I finally found some this past weekend at Charlotte Russe. Now as you know, Charlotte Russe is one of those cheapo stores I generally reserve only for accesories. But, these shorts were only $10 and managed to fit my non-16 year old body, so I snagged them.
When I described lace shorts to my mother, she was concerned they might look like lingerie. This had never occurred to me. I hope they don’t, but I guess you’ll have to be the judge. To me, they look more like a crocheted tablecloth than anything really sexy.
Also, this was the first time I got to use my super cute clutch I bought this past fall in Kennebunkport, Maine. I feel rich just typing that sentence. But, let’s be real – it was on deep clearance.
