outfit: floral shorts

I probably wear this sweater a bit too much. But it's just so comfortable! These shorts used to be my mum's. They were originally a weird knee length but I decided to make them shorter. The boots I bought from Asos ages ago. The reason for the flat outfit layout is due to my tripod breaking. It hasn't been a good few days for camera equipment around these parts. My camera is falling apart too, kind of - a bit of rubber casing has come unstuck. It's all superficial, and the camera is still fully functional, but it's just really annoying. Also, a big thank you to everyone who voted for me in the Splendour in the Grass photo competition. Unfortunately I didn't make the cut (nudged out in the dying minutes) but we still fought a good fight. I wouldn't have been able to make it anywhere near the top 5 if it wasn't for all the blog support!

  5. Wow, I recently found some shorts in Dotti which are so similar to these, just a slightly darker shade. Yours are mighty adorable and I really like the combination with the sweatshirt.

  9. @Elyse: exactly - imagine if we used all this blog support for really really important stuff!

    @herecomesthesun: it does make dressing that bit easier if you're always reaching for the same thing! haha

    @TheVelvetBow: oh wow - definitely goes to show that fashion is cyclical.

    @Blackswan: exactly. It was a bit of fun. And Glasto will probably take all the festival-ing out of me anyway!

    @Megan: only just! It's been freezing this past week but today was lovely shorts weather.

  14. I know that feeling! I also wear certain pieces over and over again, but I can't help loving them to distraction. I envy you that you fit into your mum's clothes, I can't! Great updating old goodies.
