A little while ago we were very kindly asked if we would like to choose a summer outfit each from New Look’s summer range and, having both decided recently that we would like to step out of our usual comfort zone of twirly dresses, this seemed like the perfect opportunity for us to embrace some shorts! So last week, in between stuffing ourselves silly with breakfast at the Anthropologie Bath launch and heading up to Manchester, we found ourselves strolling around in our very best summer attire. As the sun had even made an appearance for the occasion, I decided to take V to one of my favourite teenage haunts, the picture perfect Henrietta Park for some photos!
When choosing our outfits, Victoria headed straight for New Look’s handy co-ords section (I wish more online shops had cottoned on to this) and selected her gorgeous red floral top and shorts set. It looked absolutely stunning on and she accessorised it perfectly with her Primark shell bag, sparkly George sunglasses* and jazzy cobalt blue Office sandals from House of Fraser*. She looked so bright and cheery in the vibrant colours and we both agree that the shorts especially are going to making many an appearance…if the sun holds up his end of the deal too.
I am always instantly drawn to anything white and crochet so these shorts went straight into my basket. If I was at a festival or on holiday I would be happy to rock them without tights but I don’t think Bath is quite ready for my jelly – they really are short! I do like them with tights though and my George ones are even ‘heat controlled’ so I didn’t get too hot! It took me a while to figure out what to team with them and ended up plumping for this gingham shirt top, which I now LOVE. It has such a cute tie detail at the bottom and I know I am going to be wearing it all summer long. I accessoried with Topshop brogues, a white Zatchel, a Pull & Bear cardigan and my fail safe Amazon heart sunglasses.
What a lark in the park!
