Papa's Got a Brand New (pair of paper) Bag (Shorts)

brown paper bag shorts
Top: Clothing at Tesco
Shorts: Republic
Awful Quality: Sadly my own.

As I said before I really don't know what's going on with my camera, everything is coming out dull and grainy? I've never had a camera for a long period of time before so is this what they "do" when they're on the way out? hmmm.
Not overly sure on these shorts as I don't know if I can really pull off the whole high waisted and tight top malarkey, I think it kind of screams "hello look at all the jaffa cakes I consumed last night sitting in my belly", which is a shame as I think it can look wins on some people, e.g Charlene who's figure and wardrobe I actually want to steal!
The weekend has been quite a casual one for me, whilst the majority have been swept into LFW frenzy I've extra glam and have been rooting around Wilkinsons and Poundstretcher in the search for fish bowl vases to fill with lilies for wedding centerpieces. Why do those shops always smell so musky? Me and Tom bought a mattress from somewhere similar once and the stench! We had to air it out before using it : / Tbh I don't get overly excited about weird and wonderful clothes I can't afford anyway, give me a LCHAOFW (low cost highstreet and online fashion week) and I'm there with heaps of bells on.

  2. Haha maaaaaate, I'm with you on the LCHAOFW shall we start it ourselves like?? I'm not fussed about it either, I'd rather be looking for fishbowls!
    I personally think the tights and top DO work on you, because even if you love jaffa cakes.. you reeeeeeeeally cannot tell!x

  4. Honestly I can't see the Jaffa Cakes, but if I feel that a shirt might be a tad too tight, I always add a cardi to conceal my love handles ;D
    But like I said, can't see them on you in the pics, I actually think the paper bag shorts look really flattering on you with the shirt! And the b/w stripes and camel looks so nice together, it's a really cute casual look!

  13. bored of the tweets/posts/instagrams of lfw already. get fed up with it every season. i would never wear 99% of the stuff they march about in either. meh!
    on a lighter not your face is looking lovely, not sure if you have lost weight or its just a different angle but you look gorgeous nonetheless!
    Hows the old wedding to do list coming along? are you going to have millions of fish after the wedding so the bowls don't go to waste? haha
