T-Shirt – Primark
Shorts – ASOS £30
Plimsolls – Urban Outfitters
I’ve read a million blog posts on this trend, but I can’t resist joining in. These shorts are too epic to pass up writing about and I’m completely head over heels obsessed with them. I am well known for being extremely grumpy when it comes to summer dressing. I get too hot too quickly, and being tall I really struggle to find a skirt, dress or shorts that aren’t far too revealing. However, recently I have managed to nab a few high waisted shorts that aren’t super skimpy and suit my shape and age (I’m 25, I’m not wearing hot pants, thanks). These tropical print shorts aren’t the average green palm tree that dominates most items ; I love how they are relatively neutral while still showcasing a pattern. They were lingering in my ASOS wish list for about a month, and on a payday fuelled whim, I added them to my basket. They are wide in shape which makes them extremely comfortable, and hides the cleverly concealed pockets (often a bug bear of summer clothing for me). I can be wary of things this shape (hello most midi skirts) because I’m rather blessed in the hip department, but I don’t think these accentuate any unflattering bits at all, in fact, rather the opposite due to where they sit on my waist. I’ve got a pair of sports style shorts with fluroescent palm trees on that I bought for my holiday last year (they sound horrid but I promise they’re not!) so I’ll be digging those out if the good weather hangs around too!
