The Striped Short

"Crayons on walls. I'll colour on them all. I'll draw until I've broken every law" - Foster the People's 'Don't Stop (Colour on the Walls)' ...


A couple of weeks ago, I was going through my wardrobe sorting out my winter and summer clothes, when I realised that I actually don't even have that many summer clothes. The majority of clothes that I do have are mainly sweaters, jeans etc and a WHOLE lot of wool! But I was determined to find something that even remotely reminded me of summer, which was when I found these striped shorts. I bought them almost 2 years ago and have never - ever worn them...God knows why, because they're beautiful! So I decided that I would create my fashion Friday look around these, creating an outfit that had a nice fresh and fun summer vibe about it. 

With summer in mind, I immediately thought crop top! Obviously- what other garment screams summer quite like this belly button skimming top! I love them and am forever being seen either wearing one or buying one! So I have decided to pair the shorts with this black lace bralet crop (a little side boob), which I love (everyone loves a little side boob right?!) and I thought it helped create that cool summer vibe so effortlessly. 
I combined the shorts with some new primark trainers, my trusty fedora (superglued-to-my-head) hat and a stripy cardigan. At first I thought that combining both the cardigan and the shorts together might actually result in a stripe overload, but it actually turned out to look alright in the end, I was pleasantly surprised! The stripes just give off that nautical look, adding to a fresh vibe. JHEEZE I feel like I should be partying it up on a yacht in Cannes or SOMEWHERE...ANYWHERE really- if only! (A girl can dream I guess!)
Get the look:
SHORTS - F21, CARDIGAN - F21, BRALET CROP - H&M, CHAIN - Zara, RING - H&M FEDORA - Boohoo, SHOES - Primark
Do you like this look? What are some of your summer staples?
