It's Gonna Be A Hot One

navy shortsAccording to all of the weather reports, it is going to be a hot one to day so I decided to wear shorts for the first time this year. These navy blue shorts and the brown suedette top have been rescued back from the sell/swap/donate rail. The shorts were previously evicted from the wardrobe on the basis that they were unflattering (my legs are definitely more tree trunk than super model) and they have hardly seen the sunshine this year. But as the weather is going to be so hot and I thought my new shoes would go well with shorts, I am going for it. I am pretty sure there will be pastier and chunkier legs on show than mine.

This outfit is a lot more minimalist than I would usually choose (I think I have definitely been sucked in by the summers neutral thing), I feel that it needs a bit of colour, but in another way I quite like the simplicity for a very hot day. My wardrobe is looking depressingly neutral at the moment, I have a vintage/ second hand shopping trip planned soon when I hope to stock up on some more bright and beautiful prints.

Top - Next (very old)
Shorts - Topshop
Elephant necklace - Ebay
Shoes - Geox from Spartoo
Bangles - New Look
