My Style: Superhero Denim Shorts

my style denim shorts 5 My Style: Superhero Denim Shorts %tag

For a long time denim shorts have scared me, you see my thighs are not ideal for shorts in generally but certainly not bum-skimming denim ones, well that was until this summer when the high street finally added those extra few inches – yeah for everyone over a size 8!!!

They might be called Mom and Boyfriend shorts but I don’t care, they cover my arse, thank god, they fit around my chunky thighs, and the best bit is that they are high-waisted, so cover a multitude of sins while still being summery. It is like all my previous years of hoping to find the perfect pair of denim shorts have finally been answered.

Asos have some beauties, as does Topshop and New Look **see below for my top 10**, but it seems that everyone else has gone crazy for this style that my size always seems to be out, so I snapped up these ripped boyfriend shorts from River Island when I saw them.

I did buy them for my honeymoon, did I mention I get married in 3 months – probably – sorry, but with the lovely weather we have been having I decided to give them a test run at our local kite festival. As they are the superhero of all denim shorts it seemed only fitting to pair them with my fun superhero T-shirt that I picked up at Primark, it seems I can’t resist a statement tee and this one is perfect for a sunny afternoon.

Finishing off my look are my trusty Calvin Klein sunglasses, I love that they are so big, and my new Sorel festival-loving boots, they are just perfect for wandering across the rough terrain of the heath to see all the fabulous kites – the horse one was definitely my favourite.

Have you found your perfect pair of denim shorts?

My Style: Festival-Inspired Floral Love Affair

My Style Festival gap 2 My Style: Festival Inspired Floral Love Affair %tag

What is your go-to festival look?

Mine would probably be skinny jeans/denim shorts, a vintage rock tee, a bold floral kimono, some wellies and a few statement pieces of jewellery that I would probably have picked up from Primark. For this season, with the weather being a little warmer, I thought I would channel my girlie side and opt for a fun and flirty dress, pops of colour, of course sensible but cool footwear, and a statement headpiece, well it wouldn’t be a festival without wearing something silly now would it.

What I love about this look, other than how happy this tropical print shirtdress makes me from Gap, even when it starts to rain, has to be how comfortable I am not wearing wellington boots. I have a problem with not being able to find wellies that fit me well, they are always too big around the ankle, I seem to not be able to walk properly and they make my feet ache, maybe it is because I haven’t invested in quality, but I was so pleased to try out Sorel’s Slimshortie style. They are kind of part cowboy, part biker, with their full-grain waterproof leather they can take on any challenges of a festival, plus they will look great in winter as well.

To tie my boots into my look I added a tan belt, which really nips in this cute dress, and then to add a summer pop I went for this fun pompom headpiece from Asos, which is currently in the sale so snap it up quick, I just thought it looked perfect with my new specs from Kite, the yellow Shore Projects watch and my Rebecca Minkoff bag.

What do you think – would you wear this to a festival? Also have you tried out Sorel’s Slimshortie boots?

Fashion Loving: The Bench Festival Collection

With everyone packing up and heading off to the one of biggest music festival Glastonbury *yes I am jealous*, I thought I would get into the spirit and share Bench’s new Festival Collection. I am a big Bench fan, I have way too many hoodies, track tops and sweater dresses, I am kind of addicted to thumb hole cuffs, what can I say I need to keep warm!!

But as I am not a logo junkie I have to be picky with the pieces I choose, which is why this new limited festival collection is perfect as Bench have stepped away from its blazoned with logo’s for nice clean pieces, and I love it!!

This festival line is really striking, I love the mixture of graphic tribal prints with wearable basics, and best of all the whole collection is made up in lightweight fabrics, so you can squeeze more into your rucksack!!

The festival gear features both women’s and men’s pieces, and these are my top three picks from the collection: I love Mouthy, a three-quarter sleeve t-shirt that paired with leggings and your wellies will be a great look, I just adore the vibrant colour; or how about the Mandala a colourful tribal cowl neck top teamed with denim shorts; and if it rains *as it probably will* then you will need this quirky animal print waterproof Sunshower hooded poncho.

The rest of the line features cut-off denim shorts, graphic print tees, hoodies and even a jumpsuit, check out the whole collection here, if you need last-minute pieces then Bench is definitely worth a look.
