The Pair of Shorts You Never Knew You Needed*

Do you ever find an item and just fall in love? This is exactly what happened to me a few weeks ago.

Shorts and skirts are never really something I've felt confident wearing. Growing up I hated my legs. I always thought they were too skinny and pale. Even during summer months, I'd always stick to jeans/some form of trousers. However, since joining uni, I've gained a fair bit of weight, which definitely isn't a bad thing. My legs no longer look like matchsticks so I decided to take the plunge and go short shopping. Is that a thing? If not I'm making it a thing. Short Shopping.

Despite recent claims about H&M sizing (which by the way are completely true), I decided to have a peek inside. I found two pairs of denim shorts which I loved and then came across this pair. I saw them hanging up in the sale section on their own and they were a size 12. I'm normally a size 10 but they looked small, OBVIOUSLY, as I was in H&M. I decided to try them on and fell in love.

If you follow me on Instagram, (shamelessly gonna plug my insta, follow me HERE!), you'll have seen a lot of pictures of these shorts float about! I promise, I do take them off, sometimes... 

I think they're so cute. Plaid shorts is something you don't see often. In fact, I think this is the first item of plaid clothing I've ever owned! I have never seen something like these shorts before so, I decided to pair them with a white bandeau because I really wasn't sure what else would look right with it. They're perfect for festivals, summer days, I even wore them to the beach on holiday!

What would you pair these shorts with? Let me know below!
