I admit it, I really do get sucked in by celebrity endorsements but I saw Millie Mackintosh model these beautiful shorts on her blog and they HAD to be mine! I'm so glad I bought these, I've been looking for some smarter day to night shorts to take on holiday (I go to Marbella in three weeks!) and these are the perfect pair. I would say that they are a little see-through, but as long as you don't wear black underwear you should be fine! They are a cream crepe fabric with a black floral trim and I bought these from Miss Selfridge for £32- apparently they're flying off the shelves but they still have lots of sizes online. I think these are the perfect shorts for a casual trip around the town on holiday or with heels and nice jewellery, these would look gorgeous on a night out; the perfect versatile piece!

The cami is actually a cropped cami from Topshop. I've been obsessed with camis for a few weeks now and have the black and cream Topshop ones along with a beautiful electric blue cami from ASOS (all would look lovely with these shorts!).

I added my wooden heels to the outfit as I love them and can't stop wearing them, they are really comfortable and look great with so many summer looks. For jewellery I've kept the look minimal, choosing some gorgeous earrings I picked up for £3 in Miss Selfridge yesterday and my trusty Topshop geometric necklace. 

I hope you like this look and it's given you some inspiration for how to wear smarter shorts. I absolutely love this outfit and can't wait to wear it in England and in Spain- lets just hope the weather keeps up!

  7. this outfit is so gorgeous but i'm so unbelievably jealous of your legs - they're so long! i really like how you've styled these shorts as well. i've been looking for inspiration for how to wear 'smart' shorts ever since the trend came about. i see so many bloggers wearing them in different ways and it's made me realise how badly i need to get myself a pair! and these ones are just lovely! i like the trim around the bottom of the shorts, it's a nice extra detail. i also agree with how good these shorts would be as a transition piece from day to night! :) X

  8. incredible shorts!!! love the look! so classic!!!
