Uniqlo x Celia Birtwell: the shorts...

When I heard that Uniqlo were doing a collaboration with Celia Birtwell, I was very excited, I love Uniqlo's collaborations and I was pleased to add some of Celia's signature prints to my wardrobe. I originally planned to wear these shorts on holiday this summer but I thought that they would also work layered up with some chunky tights too. I'm never sure whether I pull off pattern mixing successfully but I figure you can't go wrong with a striped tee, right?! 

Top: Oasis, shorts: Uniqlo x Celia Birtwell, tights: Tesco, shoes: NW3 by Hobbs, necklace: New Look, bag: NW3 by Hobbs
As it is still pretty cold, I pulled out my oversized grey blazer  and my thick grey tights, to add some warmth and also to tone down the patterns. I don't think Tewkesbury is ready for this just yet...


This bag matched the red of the pattern perfectly and I think it adds a sense of fun too. It's impossible to be grumpy with such a shiny bag! Apologies for my face in this photo, it was pretty darn cold (I think you can see the goosebumps!) but I wanted to give a better idea of what the indoor version of the outfit looked like. I have been wearing my hair swept to the side quite a lot recently, I love the fact that it is now long enough for a proper ponytail!



A close up of the shoes, I actually managed to elegantly glide totter along in these for a whole morning, result! 



Have you picked up anything from the Celia Birtwell collection yet? How would you style these shorts?

Oh Maria, don't worry, you've completely pulled this off! Pairing stripes with basically anything works I think.
I really love the grey tights with the shoes as well, every time you wear those shoes I am overcome with shoe lust!

Ahh I have been so temped by this collection, it is all so darling! I missed the Orla collection previously, I pretty much have Orla and Celia as my top two faves.
Those shorts are fabulous, and the striped top looks lovely paired with them xxx
