Seaside Shorts & Shirts

I love summer style posts more than any other season, but there’s always far less to talk about once things start heating up a bit! Regardless, when I met up with some of my lovely mates on the seafront last weekend, I couldn’t help but feel the need to snap my latest Zara purchase and an old summer staple.

When I’m not at work I’m living in my vintage levi’s, they’re comfy and require minimum styling effort. A decent pair of high waisted shorts will never steer you wrong in my opinion. Especially if you’re like me and own an entire army of shirts. They’re actually the perfect festival combination, as you have one pair of bottoms and shirts take up minimal space -I have a feeling I could be utilising this solution a lot over the summer! My current favourite is this one from Zara. It’s the perfect orange/red shade that compliments any skin tone and hair colour, and also contains tropical print. What’s not to love?

I kept everything else simple – my ASOS sunnies and a pair of sandals. Not that you see the sandals at all here. The sea was just calling out to me, so I may have been for a little thigh heigh paddle (note: don’t do that after you’ve fake tanned like I did)!



Shirt: Zara

Shorts: Levi’s

Sunnies: ASOS

    This outfit looks very nice and comfy. I'm all for high waisted shorts this year, and jeans for that matter πŸ™‚ They are so comfy and you don't need to worry that when you bend through your knees that your but will show. And the best of all, every wobbely part is tucked away πŸ˜€

    This post has convinced me to get some shorts. I'm quite short and if the shorts length is too long I can look a bit dumpy. Thanks for the idea!
