Anyway, here's another slightly ridiculous ensemble involving a different hat from my hat stand! I would never be brave enough to wear this out, but it's nice to experiment in the comfort of my own garden. I did have a gold necklace on as well but I took it off to avoid looking like I had literally raided a dressing up box.
The main point of this post is to show you my new homemade black satin shorts, loosely inspired by a pair seen on Florence Welch (only hers were cream coloured). I made them mainly as a challenge to myself - I've always thought shorts would be rather complicated in terms of needing to be exactly the right fit. Anyway, they fit! Hooray!
To make them I traced around panels on a pair of my other shorts, then added a band around the top to make them high waisted. I finished them off with an exposed zip! What do you think of them?
I found this white shirt in a charity shop. Although I quite like the collar, I'm thinking of doing a bit of a DIY on it to change it a bit. No doubt I'll show you the results if I do decide to alter it!
