Paper-Bag Waist Shorts: Look #1

I went a bit crazy in H&M on Monday... and bought £93 worth of clothes. Poor bank account. After taking part in Wardrobe Refashion for 2 months, it feels SO weird buying new things, at full price... I feel a bit guilty, but I really wanted to treat myself after the history coursework, plus I really really love my purchases.

And here are two of said purchases: some beige paper-bag waist shorts from 'The Garden Collection' (£19.99), and a cropped black jacket, which is slightly assymetric (£14.99). I can tell these two items are going to get a lot of wear! Definitely check out 'The Garden Collection' if you have a spare 5 minutes - they've got some really nice floaty floral dresses and some beautifully structured jackets and shorts. I'm quite tempted to go back and buy a few more things!

It seemed immediately obvious that the two items could be perfectly tied together by my breton top - I'm pretty sure the colour beige is a match made in heaven for this beloved striped companion of mine.

I'm not really sure what the colours are like on these photos - my laptop has decided that it doesn't want to turn on anymore, so I'm left with an old computer whose colour settings are a bit weird; not the best of things when you're trying to use photoshop. Hopefully they're not too atrocious.

Anyway, as you may guess from the title, I've got another look planned for these shorts! They're incredibly versatile - which helps to justify spending so much money! So come back soon for Look #2 :)

I love this look! I've also been tempted by them shorts, perfect for the summer. And ever so versatile! The colours of the pictures are lovely, I love how they're different to how they normally are. :)
I'm thinking of ending my competition of the 1st of May, I guess I kind of hoped for a better response than I got, suits me right for leaving the blogging scene for a few weeks! :)

The shorts are fab! The color on your wall is cute btw. I'm re-doing my living room at the moment and a bright blue is on top of my list!
