New York, like about 44 other states, has been in the midst of a steamy heat wave making minimal clothing an absolute necessity. These lace shorts are becoming a favorite way to dress up a casual shorts and t-shirt outfit, plus the roomy yet short cut seems quite flattering. I wore this ensemble to kick off the awkward mid-week 4th of July. We spent an evening at Hill Country stuffing ourselves with barbecue brisket, sides, and cheap beer as only America does.
