Short Straw

This summer for me has been all about shorts. YES, shorts. Those of you who know me will know that every summer its the same. Me whinging about how my thighs are too fat for shorts, and how different my life would be if I could wear them. Well. This summer, its all change. I was encouraged to try a pair on by a friend, and well, I must say. Its pretty cool in the shorts club. No more sweating through the summer months in a pair of jeans, keeping my pasty pins hidden from the world. This summer they are out in force. They’re got a nice bronze glow to them, and the only part of me that isnt happy about it is my bank account. Of all my years of being addicted to shopping, shorts were always off the menu, so I am most certainly making up for lost time, and have snapped up quite a collection already. I figured its all about getting the length and fit right, and don’t be afraid to go up a size if you want the baggy fit. My problem is my small waist and colossal hips that clash almost as much as orange and yellow together, so high waisted is difficult for me. Yep, you guess it, I get that awful saggy part at the back, where my wide load of junk in the trunk is pushing it out but my waist is too small. But I’ve cut my losses, and they are most certainly a summer wardrobe staple for me, and will be for years to come!

Here are some of my faves:

L-R Topshop £32, Topshop £32, Miss Selfridge £22, Zara £15.99, Ted Baker £60
