Paper-Bag Waist Shorts: Look #2

I cannot put into words how much I LOVE these shorts. They go with everything. I've worn them all week - and re-cycled this look twice (shh!). I can tell that me and the shorts are going to be friends for years to come :).

This outfit is probably one of my most 'outdoorsy' ensembles to date, partly because the shorts remind me of explorers, and partly because I've got two leaves and a pair of binoculars dangling around my neck... I normally don't bother much with jewellery, but I thought these items would look ideal layered together. What do you think?

** Please note that the photo on the right is there purely for amusement. I call it my Apprentice pose. Hopefully Sir Alan Sugar will now hire me.**

I've just realised that this blog is officially ONE! Happy Birthday blog :D. It was weird having a look at some of my older entries and seeing how my style has changed over the course of a year! I feel like I should do something exciting like a layout change but I'm too scared to tamper with all of the coding, so I shall leave it like this for a little while. Just thought I'd say thankyou to all of my lovely readers for continuing to read and comment on the blog! I really appreciate all the feedback :D.

Anyway! Which look is your favourite? Look #1 or Look #2?

P.S. I'm just adding the finishing touches to a Mod-style dress... I'll be sure to show you all when it's finished :)

Erin said...

i love this look! every detail is special. nice work and congrats on the anniversary!

Lily said...

Hrrm... both looks are different and equally fabulous! I am eager to find some similar shorts. They are spectacular.

I also don't usually bother much with jewellery as I can barely afford to clothe myself let alone decorate myself with extraneous stuff (plus I am terrible at accessorising). Love the leaves and the binoculars! They look perfect.

Ok...I may be the first one but I think prefer the look #1 (maybe because I have a thing for bows at the moment..?), but either is great! Thanks for your comment, I can't wait to see the mod dress? Did you choose a shift pattern after all? (or would that be telling...?)
Wow, Can't believe it's been a year...weirdly, and I'm not just saying this, but your blog was one of the first I ever read- I remember because I was googling white tights and it came up, (I think it was dungerees)-! I guess it was an inspiration into blogging! Thanks so much.
(sorry I'm going to stop going on now)
cheap kicks.

Jessica said...

It's probably been said but: your shoes? Deadly cute. Happy birthday, blog!

Lemondrop Marie said...

That's what's so interesting about a style blog, isn't it? The growth and changes we go through. I love both looks- you are so pretty in both. But I am really on the side of the stripes and nautical nod.

Fantastic outfit. I'm digging the outdoorsy feel. Even though stripes are usually a winner for me, I think I'd have to say that Look #2 is my favourite.

Oh, and happy 1st blog birthday!

Hannah said...

Those shorts really are fabulous. The little ruffling happens where the belt cinches them at your waist is incredibly cute.
And they really look as though ironing is not an issue. They look great kinda wrinkly- besides, who has time to iron when they're on safari?

I need those shorts. I saw them at H&M when the Garden Collection first came out, but they were all size large, I keep going back and they don't have small. Damn. Happy Birthday to your blog too! Today, I posted my 100th post, happy day!!! Woo, I'm also doing a Rodarte for Target tulle dress giveaway, if you're interested, feel free to check it out :)
