We Throw Bombs On It

motel leopard print fashion blog
Cardigan: h&m
Top: Topshop
Shorts: Motel
Necklace: c/o Accessories Direct

I'm quite pleased I've managed to find a way to wear these shorts, I love them and I probably will attempt at wearing them without tights on holiday where no one knows/can judge me but they're just so little and thanks to 9 years of competitive swimming (or at least I tell myself this is the reason) little isn't really the word to describe my thighs. Also it means I can contrast them with a super baggy top which is always a win.
Hope everyone's recovered well from the week after a long weekend, speaking of recovery did I mention my face was destroyed by a dentist? I kid, I'm aware it's all I've spoken about recently but I was so appalled that a little anesthetic could have an effect like that - so here's my recovery snap, the swelling has now gone and the bruise is on it's way out so soon I won't need a plastering trowel to apply concealer!
Dentist bruising anesthetic

And in more shallow news I've decided to finally do something about my roots and get some blonde highlights, I've gone over a year with no colour whatsoever in an attempt to turn into Rapunzel but enough is enough and I can't take being mousy anymore ("YOU SAID SHE WAS MOUSY!" - kudos for anyone who knows that quote) and I'm hoping to be root free by Thursday. Hopefully I won't turn into a bleach obsessive this time around...

  1. That's so bad about the dentist trip...I feel your pain! I've had many an operation (not a routine anesthetic though!) that's left me bruised but thankfully they were all when I was a lot younger and not ensnared in the trap of make up and vanity!

    Also, I'm so glad someone else finds those Motel shorts a bit too tiny! I love the print but just can't seem to pluck up the courage to wear them out in public! And for the record, I love your so-called "mousy" locks! x

  14. Cor mean dentist, it looks like it is fading quickly though. On a brighter note your outfit looks great and you can definitely get away with no tights with legs like yours :) x

  45. I love how you've teamed the shorts, it looks really effective and not too in-your-face which those kind of shorts could do. What happened to your face sweet?! Was it a wisdom tooth? I had mine out last week and it's such a horrid procedure!
