lace biker shorts.






forever 21 oversized sweater and tribal leaf necklace; vintage levis cutoff denim shorts; H&M lace biker shorts (made from lace leggings); kohls winged ring; target hammered silver ring; nine west leather wedges.


really wanted biker shorts. then i wanted lace biker shorts. what i didn’t want was to pay an arm and a leg for them. but, as fate would have it, i opened my sock/tights drawer and there sat my neglected lace leggings.
lace leggings + scissors = lace bike shorts!
i’ve never been happier to find something already in my closet.
these also make me feel much more comfortable wearing my super-short shorts out to places like school.

I really want bike shorts too! I did the same snip-snip action with jeans for denim shorts, no problem. But how do you get yours to stop fraying? They're made of nylon/cotton spandex, right?

What an amazing idea that was! I'm going to have try it out! Gorgeous outfit!

caylee said...

justine loves! - you should totally make/buy some. they are a cheap way to stay on trend right now! and i wish i could answer your question, but i can't. i have no idea why they aren't fraying!

christina dee - thank you! i'm excited to be here. =)

nika - thank you! i was probably never going to wear them as leggings again (i'm more into tights), so it was definitely worth it.

bisou-joue - thank you! i think a little lace peeking out of denim is awesome =)

leflassh - ohhh dajana, thank you! it's funny to think about how we are halfway across the world from each other, and in the middle of different seasons! but you should definitely try it when you can. i can see you rocking them. p.s. i think you are more amazing ;)

maggie - hi maggie! glad you stopped by here! and thank you so much =)

style & beyond - effortless is the ultimate compliment, as that is really what you strive for when getting dressed. so THANK YOU!

lainey - thank you! you should do it. i don't want to take mine off =)

elle - thank you! yeah, i love the cutoff tights under shorts, but i think i might love it in lace even more. =)

ashleigh - thank you girl! i would love to trade links; your style/blog is amazing as well.

Wooow I really like the way lace instil such an exquisite "Daily Alcôve" twist on your "Vavavooooomesques" biker shorts . . . to create such a sulfurous/electrifying cocktail of laid back GLAM !!!
