Shorts and Tees

Shorts and Tees

Love the hat

Hot climates call for appropriate clothing and its no secret that most people would pull out the shorts. Being someone who never wears shorts, when I was packing to go to Florida I struggled with what to pack. It dawned on me that I could just make a pair out of an old pair of jeans and thus this outfit was born!

Winter Park

I was pretty annoyed because my New Look jeans had grown a whole in the back so were practically useless. I thought I may as well take a pair of scissors to them and see what could be done. With basically just a few snips I was left with a long pair of shorts. As my sewing skills are extremely limited and to be honest my cutting wasn’t exactly neat either I decided to roll up the bottom edge. This gave the shorts a really rustic kinda feel as they are darker inside so created a two toned vibe. I was so pleased with the result and they were so comfy and of course well used.

On the days where my family and I were literally just walking around theme parks and what not they were perfect. They didn’t cause too much of the old thigh rubbings which is a hell of a bonus when its like 36 degrees out.  I just chucked on this cute little tee to go with them. Honestly this is the world’s best value tee shirt as it only cost £1 from M&S.

Green Kanken

When out and about, I wore of course my extravagant hat with my Fjallraven Kanken backpack. I adore this backpack. Not only is it cute, but it’s also majorly practical this is the second one I’ve owned now!! They have both done me well and well travelled back packs!
