I WEAR SHORT SHORTS!

You know what I'm going to be seriously British for a moment and bitch about the weather - it's rained here in Newcastle non-stop for 2 weeks, including some horrendous storms that had me whimpering like skittish puppy on Bonfire Night...I almost piddled on the rug too!

So to rebel against this crappy summer, I have decided to break out the short shorts anyway - I may have to wear tights so thick that even light can't escape to make them work, but man does my little victory over the weather feel good - take that British Summer time.

Scarf, my sisters I think - similar here.
Jacket, Matalan - similar here.
Shoes, H&M - same here.

Top, H&M - similar here.
Shorts, H&M - similar here.
Belt, H&M - similar here.
Necklace, H&M - similar here.




Rings, H&M - In store now
Silver Nail Varnish, Rimmel.
Gold Foil nail Varnish, Barry M.


Havee you been defying the weather and breaking out your summer pieces despite the fact that you will get quite the soaking?

    1. It's just so relaxed isn't it - I always go a size bigger on shorts just for some extra comfort!

  13. Cute outfit, I love the belt. :) I am also refusing to acknowledge the rain and have been wearing summery dresses with my raincoat, it's probably not the best look!

  14. I have heard a lot about the terrible summer. It sounds so bad and I feel so sad for you. I am pleased you decided to wear the shorts anyway. I do things like that often too. Like when I have planned a pretty summer dress to wear and it is raining I will usually wear it anyway even if it is cold.
