As you might remember from my last post, I'm loving smarter shorts at the moment. They make a perfect change from skirts and I just can't get enough of them! I bought these shorts not too long ago from Topshop after eyeing them up on the site. They were slightly on the pricey side at £40 but I'm in love with them. The shorts are a cream chiffon material over a more opaque short underneath. The embroidery is so pretty and the colours are modern and refreshing; I was so excited when I saw the hint of electric blue with them as I knew they would look amazing with my River Island blue court shoes! I bought this top from ASOS as I haven't been able to find a bright blue cami anywhere else and it's the perfect colour. It's a beautiful cami in a woven, almost silky looking fabric and hangs beautifully.

This is one of my all time favourite outfits. I've definitely been embracing more colour recently and I adore this deep electric blue shade. I'm going to take this outfit to Marbella as I can't wait to wear it on a night out, although, it would look equally lovely with a pair of flat sandals for during the day.

I can't recommend these shorts enough- you need them in your life! If you want them to fit highwaisted,  order a size down; however I decided to get my actual size in these as I wanted them a little longer. 

I hope you like this look as much as I do! I've been doing a fair bit of shopping lately so I've got lots more outfits in the pipeline to be photographed soon- so keep an eye out for them.
