Floral Culottes

quite quaint topshop tshirt
quite quaint love label floral shorts
quite quaint woven belt

T-shirt & Rings: Topshop  |  Belt: Thailand  |  Shorts: Love Label  |  Nail Varnish: Rimmel, Grey Matter

I had no idea how short these shorts looked until I saw these photos! I think they feel longer because I know that they're shorts, well culottes to be precise but I hate that word, it reminds me of school uniform. I'm definitely not going to be wearing them again without opaque tights! Not that it's likely to be hot enough again this summer to wear them with bare legs anyway.

It seems a little odd to be posting an outfit like this when my last post was full of cosy winter clothes. I actually took these photos a few weeks ago because I knew I was going to be insanely busy this week. I've been working 11 hour shifts which is slowly making me go crazy, I expect all the free coffee has something to do with it too though. It also means I've had no time to reply to my comments or check out your blogs which makes me feel bad, but when I get a break I'll have a big catch up!

  19. You're right, culottes is such a schoolgirl word! I used to be the only one to wear culottes in school & was ribbed constantly, I hated my mum for it, ahaha. But she probably gave me a bit of fashion sense, in a way.

    I love your new style of posting/photos!

  21. You look lovely! I love your hair colour too, definitely suits you. I think I'm having serious hair envy...makes me wish I had the guts to dye my hair (I am naturally blonde and am hesistant to change it as I get told how lovely the colour is!)

  54. I've wanted a belt like that for so long and I have to agree with many others that your hair is lovely.

    If I had a penny spare I would definitely buy your radiohead tshirt.
