Five Take: Shorts

Hello! Hope you've all had a fab weekend, I've had a lovely weekend myself, spending time with friends and family. This absolutely needs to happen more often, it definitely soothes me and lifts my mood!

So, this weeks Five Take... I'm powering on although I was alone last week in my efforts (sob, sob ha!) This week we're tackling shorts. I must say I'm not a huge shorts fan, I always find they ride up a bit, hungry bum syndrome.... Err yeh, I just said that.

I did however buy these denim shorts the other month, I couldn't resist. I'd wanted some for ages, so I just went for it. Personally I'd never wear them without tights because I just can't bear the thought of the world seeing my bum cheeks! (oh god I can't stop saying bum today)

Who likes short shorts.....
I wore my New Look shorts with the Clements Ribeiro for Evans Diana Top and We Love Colors turquoise tights.... A moment please for the tights...ummm amazing!!

I've heard everyone raving about We Love Colors and was hoping I might get a chance to bag myself some at Plus North, but we handed all the samples out to our lovely guests and kind of forgot to bag a pair! But thank you to the gorgeous Caroline at Curvy Wordy who sent me a couple of her pairs I've finally got to try them and man, they rock! I wore the C/D size on my 52 inch hips. The fit was amazing, the material supersoft and appearance, pretty damn cool! I can't wait to stock up on them for Autumn/Winter.

Lots of raised eyebrows photos for some reason.....


This is a very bright outfit for me, but I'm loving the combo of the purple and turquoise, I appear to have lost my footwear at some point but I just teamed it with some simple ballet flats...

  3. I brought these shorts from New Look in the sale a couple of weeks ago. They're lovely. I brought them for holiday but never thought of wearing them in this country. I may give them a go with tights under seeing your post. They look totally different. Very nice xx

  4. I personally hate shorts. I have one knee length pair, but anything shorter I wouldn't touch. Due to my legs resembling cottage cheese/corn beef on any given day. They suit you with tights but I just don't think I could carry it off. xx
