Sexy Shorts and Knockout Knits!

I spy with my little fashion eye....some AMAZING denim shorts!

Ok...it might not be Summer (do we even get a summer anymore?) but this is the wardrobe staple that works all year round.  My favourite outfit right now (works for daytime and casual drinks) is a pair of denim shorts, tights and slouchy top/jumper with my Michael Korrs watch and stacks of bracelets...Done. They really are quite a thrify purchase as they're totally versatile, tights = Winter, replace tights with bare bronzed legs = sorted for Summer!

Celebrities are jumping on the bandwagon too...

Mastercard need a bit of a break?  Why not DIY it.  Our fav DIY fashion blog A Pair & A Spare just featured a fab guest post from Julia at Freepeople on DIY studded cut-offs.  We LOVE.


Shorts sorted.  Now what to wear them with?  Here's some inspiration (high street and designer, to mix it up a little)....

For only £35.99 this is a steal - oversized with a slightly open knit stitch, would look fab with a brightly coloured lace bra underneath.

You can snap this Phillip Lim number up for £345, gorgeous textured yarn with a stepped hem to get the true slouchy look.

For a more summery look, Topshop have this simple, chic knitted vest for only £26! I picked this one up last week, I loved the sport luxe edge it adds.

This Helmut Lang jumper is officially my favourite thing in the whole wide world - I really really REALLY want it! But at £370 it is slightly out of my pre-holiday budget.

Designer bargain! £555 reduced to £194.25 - a total steal! My friend Gemma turned up to brunch in this Preen Line bobble beauty, if possible it is even more gorgeous in real life.

And last but not least....the tights, for me it's all about Topshop and House of Holland. They have the quirkiest, coolest hosiery any girl could wish for....
