Passion for Shorts in Winter.

Even though it’s insanely cold, with perfect timing I have inadvertently decided that I am into shorts. I’ve already bought two pairs with my Christmas vouchers and I want more. Topshop are kindly allowing me to indulge, their grey denim ones with polka dot hearts (see left) are just fab. Ridiculous as it my be to wear shorts in winter, I figure, at least you can layer them up. I’m thinking tights and/or long socks and heavy boots.

Not to mention the top half, if you go bulky on top with chunky knits / (faux) fur or embellished coats, shorts help create a slim silhouette on the bottom half. (If you get my drift). So what else can I do but indulge and buy plenty of tights to go with my new fashion obsession. NB: I am also in love with polka dots and gold nail varnish – fingernails only though, with blue toes it looks a bit grim. A fabulously foresighted friend of mine bought me few shades from Virgin Vie cosmetics for Christmas and gold was one of them. (So thanks Lis!) More pics at Her Apparel.

    I’m all for shorts in any weather! All you have to do is wear tights,layer and you’re as cosy as if you were wearing trousers! (Plus it looks cuter!)

    Love the little heart tights – really makes the outfit. x
