Motel Shorts
Shorts: Motel
Blouse: Newlook
Cardigan: Newlook
Burgundy Dress (worn as top): Newlook

These shorts were sent to me after the Motel event last month, I initually chose a dress but changed my mind after seeing numerous people in the shorts/tights combo and feeling jealous that the only shorts I owned were old, baggy, and denim. I actually took these photos on Saturday as I was planning on wearing one of the above to battle the general public to do a spot of christmas shopping but after half an hour of deciding whether or not they were too revealing I got scared and left the house in jeans. However ikea is obviously the place to flash a cheek or two as I was confident enough to donn them today whilst purchasing lint rollers and a milk whisk. Still not really sure how to style them so suggesions are welcomed with open arms!

In other news I visited the holy grail of supermarkets today, if you haven't been to the MASSIVE Asda in Milton Keynes you haven't lived, although I was quite disappointed a the lack of stuffed crust in the create your own pizza section - I like a cheese overload in a cosy doughy blanket and a thin n' crispy just isn't good enough : /

Oh and after watching haidee on youtube yesterday my old love for Hey Arnold now feels a little bit tainted.

  2. WHY WONT YOU WEAR THESE SHORTS OUT? They're fit.. and everyone loves butt cheek showage. Trust me. I do.
    I love it with the velvet top, as then it shows you have shorts on (unlike your slutty cardigan combo! IM JOKINGG!) Definitely a fan of them though innit.
    And I put my hand up.. I haven't lived man, never been to MK Asda.. although I do BUM asda.

  3. Good pick with the shorts. They are amazing. You should wear them everywhere but I really love them with the cardigan, the colours just go so well together.

  19. The shorts look great on you, but I know what you mean when they could seem too revealing. Ikea is always a good place tho! Ahh Hey Arnold, used to love that. I'm not sure I want to know more about this haidee thing though... xx

  24. I love those shorts, they're so nice! I really like the first outfit with the big chunky cardi, perfect for daytime wear and not revealing at all!
    I have a distinct lack of shorts in my wardrobe too, only 1 pair of denim shorts that must be at least 4 or 5 years old by now. Sad times!

  30. Me and my house went to the huge Asda in Sheffield yesterday and having been used to a Tesco Express for months it BLEW MY MIND! Love the shorts and the velvet looks really good together - wouldn't have thought about putting those together. Hmmm. You could play it safe Mosshart-style and wear with a band t-shirt, or maybe a chunky knit jumper? ♥ Claire @ Jazzpad
