Floral cords...

Shorts: Topshop, sheer top [worn underneath]: H&M, jumper: Boss by Hugo Boss via jumble sale, necklace: Topshop, shoes: Carvela.
There are some clothes that you see in the shops and you just can't get them out of your head. These shorts are that item. I saw them when I was at home and online and I finally caved yesterday when I popped into town after my test. I figured that it wasn't a complete impulse purchase as I had wanted them before but what do you guys think?!

I like to mix textures with my outfits and so I paired these shorts with my favourite sheer top from H&M and this wrap jumper from Hugo Boss. The jumper was such a steal at 10p and it has proved surprisingly versatile despite being almost impossible to put on. I can't be the only one who struggles with wrap styles, surely?!

I swear though, these shorts are probably the comfiest thing in my wardrobe at the moment. There's something about cords that reminds me of being younger, maybe it's the fact that they are just so hard-wearing? The print is fab and reminds me of this bag which I cannot wait to pair with this t-shirt :) With the summer looming though I think it will also look fab with bright coral and purple t-shirts.

Another purchase from yesterday, the most gorgeous necklace, again from Topshop. It is a lovely crystal/stone with some added bling, which I can't wait to layer up this summer. It's not something I would normally go for but I love the fact that it's completely unique, not something you normally associate with the high street! 

How do you reward yourself after you have finished a test? Are there certain clothes that you can't get out of your head?

Gorgey shorts! I reward myself with um, brownies or cookies hahahaha! Rewarding yourself with new clothes to play with is a much smarter idea haha! xxx

Maria said...

Michelle- Haha, I treated myself to pizza too ;)

Those shorts are lovely, the look like a really cute and quirky alternative to denim shorts for the summer! Love the necklace too, Topshop have lots of gorgeous jewellery in at the moment.

those floral shorts are great. They could be worn with tights or leggings in autumn and winter too.

Maria said...

Gillian- Thank you, I can't wait to wear them with bare legs :)

Sophie- I can't wait to layer them with jumpers and cute coloured tights when it gets cold :)

Love the shorts my dear! I don't really wear wrap tops, but I struggle getting most clothing on and off, I swear I'm the most awkward person ever. I could never do a seductive undress like they do in the movies! I'd end up falling over with my dress over my head or something!

Oh & I awarded you the Versatile Blogger award on my blog x x
