I wrote this post in the sunnier days of june and I am having the summer blues so I thought I would post it today as a throwback.
I picked out these tacky shorts from Primark as I thought they were fantastic. the words of ‘young love’ written on my shorts makes me cringe with the beautiful cheesiness of them. I think these shorts are very funky and cool and I actually really like the stars, hearts and swirls that give the illusion they have been drawn on. I have combined these shorts with a bright pink floral top and my favourite yellow jelly shoes. The bright colours of the top and shoes combine perfectly with the patterned shorts in creating a summery, out-there outfit for beaching or shopping. I’ve actually worn this outfit a bit too many times because it is just perfect for the hot weather we’ve had in Scotland recently.
I don’t usually like wearing shorts much because, let’s face it, they aren’t the most flattering items of clothing. However, these shorts give me a bit of space around my legs and the fringed denim around the leg rims give a blurred sort of look that helps with how flattering they are. Don’t be afraid to ever buy something a couple sized bigger because, I mean, that’s what belts are for and the right belt is just a visual dream come true.
