This was actually the outfit I wore yesterday, I didn't get a chance to take any photos until night time. You'll be happy to know that today I am not wearing shorts and tights though! I was actually wondering why I was wearing them so much lately and I think I've figured it out...are you ready for a story? 

In grade 2 (eons and eons ago) it was super cool to wear shorts and tights. My teacher Ms. D. used to rock them all the time and, maybe it was just my elementary school, but it was the height of hip to be seen in this combo! My best friend and I decided that the next day we would both wear our shorts with tights, we were very excited and couldn't wait to be "cool"! So I woke up early the next morning and really put my time and care into getting ready...I felt fabulous in my high-waisted, faded denim and black tights (there may have been a few scrunchies involved too...shhh, it was the nineties!). I went to leave the house and my mum bursts out laughing and tells me that there is no way I can wear that to school. She made me change into regular clothes and I sulked for probably a week. So, 15 years later and here I am obsessed with shorts and tights because I feel like I'm a rebel when I wear them. Yes, I know... I'm so bad! (Hah!)

Cardigan and Tee: Gap
Shorts and Boots: Le Chateau
Tights: Joe
Necklace: From the Earth

On a completely unrelated note, I may be suffering from a bit of cabin fever... as these next pics can attest to. I was waiting for my ancient kettle to boil so I could have a lovely cup of tea and I decided to share my nightly routine with you (I really love my tea). The sun is outside shining right now though, so I'm going to go for a walk and shake off winter's S.A.D.! Have a lovely day!




  1. You rebel, you! Haha. Tea is so relaxing. I looove the punch of color you achieved with the red cardigan!

  4. shorts and tights! Cute! I've been wanting to try this, and actually just purchased a pair of shorts on ebay that I'm hoping will work well for this look.


Thanks for all your lovely comments, they never fail to make my day! xx
