Red hot...

I should say now, these photos were taken in that brief window of time where the sun was actually out and it was warm enough not to have to wear a coat, unfortunately now I am back huddled up in my winter woolies! There's nothing particularly exciting about this outfit but I loved the individual pieces together and liked it so much that I just had to share...

Top: Oasis, shorts: Miss Selfridge, tights: Sainsburys, shoes: Office
You all know how much I love the colour red, so when these shorts came into the sale, it was a total no-brainer. I loved how they were high waisted but also long enough that I didn't have to keep pulling them down all day.


Even from the back they looked OK, I find some high waisted things make you look like a sack of potatoes so I was glad to see that this wasn't the case!


Mark commented that it looked like the waistband was a simple 'cut and paste jobby' and I think he's right!


My favourite Breton striped tee, perfect for keeping off the chills and for covering over my less than tanned arms!


My updated version of my classic nude flats. My old Dorothy Perkins one had really suffered enough so I thought it was more humane to replace them before they completely fell apart. I wore these to the Aussie party and didn't hurt my feet at all, despite trekking round London, definitely a win in my book! 

Do you replace old favourites? What outfit is a no-brainer for you?

Love the shorts, particularly the colour. I always like to replace my worn out basics - at the moment it's my neutral ballet flats that are in need of an update!

Harriet said...

Those shorts are beautiful! They are just the perfect length too - I really hate that feeling of too short shorts but these are just right!

Red hot is damn right Maria, looking a-mazing in these shorts. Love the simplicity of the breton tee and nude flats with the brightness of the red.

You look so pretty!! Love those shorts- the style AND the color; they look great on you! :D

Nomad said...

Love those shorts. Colour and style are both perfect. I get sad about having to replace my flats just because I go out of my way to get unusual ones so I know I won't be able to find them again. I keep switching them with others just so they'll last a bit longer, ha ha. :) xx
