I mentioned in Fridays post that i was looking forward to ditching my practical shorts that i had been living in and donning a dress. But it appears i'm easing myself back in slowly by wearing a pair of shorts again! Pretty shorts, but shorts none the less. When lengths are this short i will take it in short form any day. When skirts and dresses are this short i just can't handle the constant fear of flashing, and i just look uncomfortable all day long. I'm the one uncomfortably tugging at the hemline constantly wondering why I wore such a ridiculously short skirt/dress. But with shorts, i am happy. I feel at peace knowing i am not going to expose thyself and shock the poor people in the near vicinity.
Plus it was super breezy today so these oriental shorts were perfect. Light, girly and flowy yet perfectly covered, even with the pesky wind! (i am totally crushing on the matching kimono blazer to these shorts too... how gorgeous would they be together as well as separately!)
I went for a little bit of pattern mixing with my new sale buy of thw window pane print blouse from River Island. This blouse should see me through to autumn and work as a great transition piece as the checked print is set to be big next season. With the colour theme being common amongst the two pieces (black &white) they seem to mix so well together, i was so pleased with the outcome that this has become top of my outfit leader board (actual thing,,haha i kid...maybe;)
