Lately I’ve been trying new items of clothes which I would never of dared to wear in the past. With the days getting warmer and sunnier I thought that this year I would invest in some shorts to keep me cool through the days. Last year I wore leggings and dresses and this year I wanted to push myself to get my legs out! This is partly due to my confidence rising but mostly because I’ve been getting them tattooed recently and I wanted to show them off.
I decided to showcase my shorts when I headed to my fave tattoo shop The Black Diamond Tattoo Collective with Adam a few weeks back so he could get his first ever tattoo, and what a tattoo he got. Not settling for something small, he got the most beautiful lady holding a snake with a skull from resident artist Matt Pounder (BC Tattooer).
The finished tattoo!
I’m so jealous of Adam’s tattoo! It’s so gorgeous, I’m in love with it. Like I said, this was Adam’s first tattoo which he planned in the last few weeks after painting and decorating the shop which has recently been fully renovated and taken over by new owners! Formally Envy Ink, Black Diamond is more stunning than ever and is my studio of choice.
However, this post is about shorts so lets get back to them! They were super comfy to wear and easy to sit around in. I was there for hours reading my kindle whilst Adam got tattooed and they didn’t bother me once. They sit nice and high waisted and look great with a simple tank. The length is lovely, not too long but not too short that you’re paranoid about anything showing. The colours are really vivid and a gorgeous floral print which means you could pick any of the colours out to accessories and could wear practically any colour top with. I kept the floral theme going and teamed them with a home-made white flower crown and my orange sunrise wig from Geisha Wigs to bring out the orange in the shorts and give a pop of colour! The shorts I got in a size 22 and they are true to size with a great amount of stretch in them. They’re jersey and breathable so great for long day trips.
I never thought I would feel this great in shorts but honestly I felt amazing. I felt curvy, confident and fashionable and my instagram followers really loved them. ASOS have more shorts in this shape which I think I will invest in and keep as a great summer staple
Will you be wearing shorts this year? What are your favourite style?
