In Theory


In theory these ridiculously soft leather shorts are a ridiculous £410.  Now I’m not saying they’re not worth it because without a doubt they display impeccable craftsmanship, however, that sits well outwith my monthly budget – that’s more like a place to live for a month.  Enter TK Maxx…  £49.99 pricetag and they’re in my basket.  Worn with heels in the morning for work but by the time we got round to taking these shots the heels had been subbed for the sneakers and so, you’re getting the sporty version.

Tomorrow we fly to the sun but regular blog posts will continue.  Warning – there may be a cocktail in my hand.  Keep up on Bloglovin’ and Facebook.  See you in the desert!x

      thank you – what a lovely comment – the bun is just a messy pony pulled half through the hair tie (maybe I’ll do a tutorial one day!)

    Fifi honey I am obsessed with your dog! Like I love love love your dog! And those shorts look nice but I always worry about sweating in leather shorts and pants so I never wear them anymore.

      your comments about the dog made me smile 🙂 he has this effect on people!
      I can see where you’re coming from with the leather shorts worry but I suppose in Scotland it’s not often warm enough to sweat in anything! More worried about cold legs…
