Before and After: Lace Shorts

I have one major flaw when it comes to 'Before and After' projects. I (without fail) always forget to take the 'Before' picture and just go to straight to work on the up-cycling. For this project I was able to just do some pinning to get the 'Before' look, other projects I haven't been so lucky! 

These are a pair of khaki shorts that a friend gave to me in 2007. They are pretty boring and slightly outdated, so I thought I would give them a little make over!


I used two different types of vintage lace from my Mum's collection of vintage material for the make over. They are so much fun to wear now! They have a really feminine feel, which I love pairing with my shit kicker boots! I will post some outfit pictures with them soon! 

This make over was inspired by Sincerely, Kinsey, a blog that I found through A Beautiful Mess. Here's a look at her shorts make over! Both sites having amazing ideas for DIY. Make sure you check them out! 

Thanks for reading!
