I always find it tricky to plan outfits during the change of seasons. Inevitably, I always wind up having to shed or add layers as the day goes on. As we inch closer to summer though, I find that I’m much more comfortable in bare legs and bare arms. For some reason, if my shoulders are cold I feel chilly all over, but I can tolerate breezy legs with ease. Go figure. So today I’m wearing shorts to keep the seasonal-shift-status-quo.

– Red flats from Steve Madden

– Ruby ring
I used to hate wearing shorts. I found them really uncomfortable. I’m also pretty self-conscious about my thighs, so I feel nervous about highlighting them. However, in the last couple of years my wardrobe has gained three pairs of shorts, which I wear more and more frequently as I get older. I wish I’d jumped on the shorts bandwagon sooner, because they’re so comfy and really easy to style.
I’m loving this double-bun hairdo too. It makes me feel a bit like Sailor Moon and a bit like Minnie Mouse. It’s really simple to do and it keeps the hair off my face. As an added bonus, it’s a little bit quirky, so when I wear it to work, I always get loads of compliments.
