The last of the mirror selfies! For now anyway, we know I'm so lazy so they'll probably be back in like a month. I kinda like this outfit but I don't think I need to tell you how unnecessary that leather was. Phewee! The thing is my room is quite cool so when I leave the house I'm never dressed properly for the heat that awaits me outside, plus it looked so cloudy. Anyway I love these shorts so much but for some reason I rarely wear them, probably because they're quite short and look best with a tan. They're a light, silky material, they have the prettiest kind of scallop detail and, here comes the best part...the waist is elasticated, holla!  You can't see them here but the ties are also pretty and tasselly, someone please remind me to wear these perfect shorts more often. And then there's my favourite breton which you've seen a million times and my comfy Topshop espies even though I really wanted to wear my fake Birkies but thought I'd give them a well deserved day off.

Are you finding it hard to dress for this weather too? I won't lie, I'm kind of looking forward to cooler weather which may have something to do with the fact I've bought my winter coat already...

  10. The exact same thing always happens to me. My apartment is pretty cool and there's loads of building works happening right outside my window, so it always seems really grey outside! I keep wearing a darn rain jacket! xxx

  24. Well hello Josie's legs, it so nice to see you again, you should visit more often :)

    I love this outfit, so relaxed yet stylish and the scalloped hem, delightful.
    I hate to show my legs so I'm struggling with this weather, still hot with super thin tights.

  28. The weather at the moment just can't make up its mind is it summer or autumn. Knowing how to dress is really difficult. I love your shoes purchased from your holiday really lovely an great with the shorts. The top is very French/nautical. Love the look Lucy x

  29. Pretty outfit lovely! Shorts are sooo cool. I'm struggling in this weather too, our office is always freezing because of the air-con and when you go outside a wave of heat hits you :/ xx

  30. You look very beautiful, Josie. I really like the shorts, no wonder you love them too!!! I wish I could wear them but since I have thick thighs they don't really suit me. Oh well! Maybe jogging will make them stronger and less flabby!

    I find it hard sometimes to wear something with this weather as it's too warm in Spain and I suffer because shorts make my legs feel very very sweaty so I go for something relaxed or skinnies.
