If you love me let me go back to that bar in Tokyo

Tee: H&M (Cannot find the link?!) Dog print shorts: c/o OASAP. Pumps: Primark. Hair piece: Matalan.

Ahh shorts. The things I spend majorty of my life fighting with. Now for me, I like them either high waisted, or baggy around the thigh. The bagginess (so I tell myself) helps make my thighs look smaller. And the high waisters suck in the stomach. 
So when I saw these dog print shorts, I was kinda taking a risk. They were one size. I was really pushing it, thinking they'd fit over my rear. But alas, they did! And they aren't high waisted. Nor are they baggy. But they're also not tight!
And I actually really like them. To be quite honest, they may have even converted me!
I decided to not make them girly, like I always do. So kept it simple with a tee and some pumps. Quite a different look for myself, but I'm preparing for festivals. Because I even know myself, I'd look a tit with my wedges and summer dresses in a field.
And so yes, I am trying the cool approach. And if all else fails, I'll just be happy my thighs aren't spilling out!

Don't forget to enter my giveaway! Your neck needs some love too!

  12. Ahhh those shorts are so gorgeous, it's dead difficult to find a pair that aren't too tight or that catch the breeze and threaten to expose you as much as any dress! The pattern on them is just perfect and I love the cute little top too.

  13. I absolutely love these, they look gorgeous on you! I joined the Oasap blogger thing last week but I don't think any of the one size items would fit me as I'm not teeny enough so I picked some shoes instead! Might have to starve myself so I can get those shorts though, haha! Love them in the green colour on the website! X
