I also do specialty posts such as my Mother’s Day Gift Guide HERE and a Swimsuit Guide HERE.
Anyway, enough about me…
TAKE IT AWAY LAURA!
Hi PTMT! I’m Laura and I blog at Hollywood Housewife. Sheaffer and I found one another through Hi Sugarplum and she instantly made me laugh. I love the internet.
Hollywood Housewife is where I chronicle my life as a wife, mom, and writer in Los Angeles. I grew up in a small town in Oklahoma and even though I’ve been in California for over a decade, I still find myself at a crossroads between my roots and my reality.
I have to admit that I have a love/hate relationship with Pinterest. I was all about it when Pinterest first came on the scene, but I grew icy fast. I wrote about how women are losing what is cool about their natural style. Still, I’ve been sucked down the Pinterest rabbit hole on many an evening.
And then this experiment arose when Sheaffer asked me to guest post and I fell in love with Pinterest all over again. I learned something about my own style and stepped out of the box!
I got this pair of white lace shorts last summer and not only are they darling, they have an elastic waistband. I’ve had two kids, folks. Elastic is my friend. My best friend. I’ve only ever paired the shorts with a colored top, but when I was browsing Pinterest I noticed that most people were doing white on white. It had never occurred to me!
This was my first attempt.
Probably I should have chosen an inspiration picture that wasn’t quite so model-y. Oh, well, I aim high.
To my surprise, it worked! It looked really summer-y and polished. This is never how I would have styled these lace shorts myself, so I feel like I really accomplished something. If putting together a single outfit counts as accomplishing something.
I am IN LOVE with your white bag and nude shoes,
and you are ROCKING those white lace shorts!
I loved how fresh it looked!
So, we’ve established that WHITE ON WHITE and WHITE ON NUDE is a seriously huge trend right now….but if you ladies are anything like me and Laura, it‘s not something you would necessarily think of doing on your own.
In addition to white, lace is also totally “IN” right now.
So…..because we are SO in the know over here at Pinterest Told Me To, I thought I would offer up some choices for people in case they are interested in going for this look too!
Here are 2 white dresses that are classic and oh so pretty.
Or what about THIS white lace shirt HERE. I love it and feel like it would be an easy way to incorporate the white lace trend into your wardrobe. You know, if you aren’t brave enough to try the white lace shorts.
Speaking of white lace shorts, I found 4 choices.
I actually found lots of choices, but you wouldn’t believe how much $$ people are wanting for white lace shorts.
Not to mention, people are really playing it fast and loose with the word “shorts”.
So many options would barely cover your hoo-ha.
So, 4 appropriate options follow at varying price points.
an affordable version HERE
another option HERE
a really pretty pair HERE (check out the video in the link)
a super expensive pair HERE
(if you have $188 extra dollars lying around to buy lace shorts with, well then go on with your bad self)
Okay, enough of the lace, on to just some white and nude choices to add to your closet.
Everybody needs a great pair of white jeans, click HERE to see a fabulous pair of white skinny jeans or HERE to see a pair of white trouser jeans.
And I just got THESE white cut-offs. These are a great option if you want some white shorts but aren’t quite ready to get a pair of lace ones for yourself. They have stretch in them, so they are super comfortable. I actually got them in the denim too!
And I recently purchased THIS henley tunic.

Other white bag choices here:
another white cross body option from Jessica Simpson HERE
4 different big buddha bags from Nordstrom:
HERE, HERE (a bucket shape with stud detail), HERE, and HERE (with braid detail)
And are you guys LOVING nude shoes as much as I am?
I don’t have much use for a nude heel…but a nude wedge would fit nicely into my closet.
(You guys know I ADORE my putty wedge HERE,
but I would have liked a nude option too. If you are new here, read about my obsession with THE MOST COMFORTABLE WEDGE ON THE PLANET right HERE!)
I think these shoes are so so pretty and I like the detail on each of them.
(All 3 of them also come in white.)
And I’m not in need of a nude heel, but I know it’s shower and wedding season…so maybe some of you ladies are in the market for one
I’ve found some gorgeous ones that might strike your fancy!
So, if you were inspired by Laura to pull off a white and nude look, I hope I gave you lots of good options to consider.
Thanks again Laura for stopping by and giving us some of your Hollywood glamour!
Maybe we should all aspire to have a little Hollywood in our lives!?! 🙂
