Shirt: She Likes*
Necklace: Pop Couture*
Shorts: Miss Selfridge
Tiger Ring: Christmas present!
For a good couple of months now I have been searching high and low for a reasonably priced pair of smart-casual black shorts that I can wear my ever growing collection of shirts and blouses with. I flirted with the idea of getting a rip-off version of the Zara skort, I came just shy of checking out a pair of leather look lace ones on the New Look website and I even contemplated a pair of tiered crochet shorts before I realised that I do not need to be adding more volume to my hips thank you very much.
As luck would have it though, I found this pair of satiny shorts with gorgeous lace detailing in the Miss Selfridge sale for seven British pounds, and the only pair that was left was in my size. I immediately rushed home and tested my theory that they would work well with a brightly coloured shirt (of which I have many) and voilà, I had the perfect accompaniment for my beautiful new She Likes geometric print blouse.
Perhaps when the sun comes out again I'll be brave enough to try wearing them without a trusty pair of black tights, though I'll have to double check how high up on the bum cheek the lace section comes...its quite see through!
