Friday's Fancies: Short & Sweet

Hi everyone! 

Although it looks like it's going to be a wet weekend in this part of the world, it's still summer in my mind! I'm so glad I have holidays to look forward to and outfits to plan! And no holiday would be complete with some great shorts. Day or night they can be dressed up or down to suit any occasion. By playing with colours and adding statement accessories, it's easy to make one key piece go the distance! 

Taking these pastel perfect shorts from Warehouse, I've added pretty earrings by Dori Csengeri and a bright pair of Kurt Geiger heels for an ultra glam evening look. Meanwhile, a tribal print Oasis top paired with flat Musa sandals gives the shorts a relaxed feel, ideal for shopping trips or daytime exploring!



Be sure to stop by Long Distance Loving for more great styling ideas!



Have a fabulous weekend!

  6. I love both those tops and could see myself getting tons of wear out of them.
    It's miserable here too if it's any consolation !

  20. Thanks for following my blog, yours is great, you put things together really beautifully (it must run in the family!) I notice you are off to Marbella, I will be keeping an eye out for the reports, I have been looking at the price of villas, we usually head to St Tropez and for the same price as our pokey little flat I could hire a 10 bedroom villa but I have been slightly put off with the Mail online pics of the cast of TOWIE and huge numbers of sweaty, sunburnt, English men! I would love to know what the reality is.
