Black Lace

With Easter break beginning on Friday, London is blessed with an amazing summer weather, that just barely let me think of going skiing in more than a week.
That’s why I put on my lately purchased lace shorts consisting of a slightly different material than what we usually associate with lace. Due to this, I can already imagine wearing these shorts at the beach as well as during a night out.
I wrote about my deep and everlasting passion to this material when I pulled my lace dress last Christmas but I simply love the way you can combine it to nearly every occasion.  Whether day or night, lace seems to be always appropriate if worn in the right way.
This time, I went for a little contrast within the look – being covered up all in black (perfectly showing my total paleness to the world) but still using playful shorts to some boyfriendstyled blazer is one of the combinations that automatically came up my mind. To add a little more elegance yet don’t leave it in a way too black in black light, I reduced my accessories to golden details only. Inspired by Dolce & Gabbana (and still completely in love with this look), I put on my creoles and just couldn’t stop thinking about how this piece of jewellery adds some decisive image to the whole outfit. With this look and various ideas of how I will combine these shorts to other pieces, I went out for an early dinner at Hakkasan Mayfair with my dad.
