shorts with lace.

Yesterday I finally got around to finishing a d.i.y. projectthat I started last week. It was super easy and turned out surprisingly good. I’m sure I’ll get lots of use out of these pretty little shorts this summer.

d.i.y. shorts

Rubbish tank top

h.i.p. cardigan

Zara leopard belt

YSL arty ring

Forever XXI necklace

Today is a holiday in Austria, so Mike is taking me to a pretty lake and hopefully we’ll go on a little boatride lunch at ra’mien and then we’re seeing Hangover 2 in the afternoon because the weather turned out less sunny than what we had expected. But still a fun day :) Yay for long weekends!!!

    Oh the shorts turned out beautiful! I loved the inspiration piece that you posted so much that I already went out and bought some trim myself – now I just need to find the right pair to sew it onto, and I'll have myself some similar shorts! I can't wait – these pictures make me even more excited to finish them! :D

    These turned out great! such an easy way to turn old shorts (or even pants if you do them as cut-offs) into something you can wear again!

    Thanks for sharing!

    Ok now I have to do this! They are so cute and it gives new life to shorts that you might be bored with.

  33. Tazz Gault says:

    I absolutely love this idea! I have a pair of shorts that are just a little bit too short, so this would sort it out perfectly :)
