A return to shorts in winter

shorts in winterwinter outfitburgandy jumper

Something has been missing in my life this winter and that would be the wearing of shorts. In the past I would have named shorts and tights as part of my signature winter style but for some reason this year I've almost forgotten about my shorts altogether. I felt very at home in this outfit which I wore in town recently and that is something really special about wearing favourites; the feelgood factor. This burgundy Vero Moda jumper is properly worn in now, washed a few dozen times and looking a little tatty upon closer inspection. It hasn't performed that shrinking-stretching trick that I've witnessed before (have you had jumpers that shrink in height but stretch in width? Utterly confounding) and is one of the first I would think of reaching for to bung on over anything when I'm feeling chilly. The rich red wine colour means it is best suited to autumn and winter so I've been getting a good number of wears in, even if most outfits haven't made it on to the blog. You might just be able to make out my Joules blouse peeking out.

Shorts and bootsshorts and tights

The shorts, boots and bag are all second hand finds with the boots being down to pennies per wear. I bought them years ago on ebay for around £5 and have walked hundreds of miles in them (so much so that I had them re-heeled as they looked a bit sorry for themselves) and are so comfy as well as being pretty versatile. I'm really quite fond of this necklace from George at Asda that I wore with my pretty dress here and appreciate it's simplicity.
