The sun is out & I've got the shorts on!!

We were so lucky with the weather at the seaside last week. It was proper holiday weather! So I got the short shorts out for the first time in about 2 years - a momentous occasion. In fact, I wore them for two days in a row!
This was on one of our trips to the beach at Portrush. Love it there and the kids always have so much fun.
I'm wearing shorts from Mango and an orange H&M loose vest over my Kaleidoscope long white vest. My cross body bag (holding everything from plasters to suncream to spare clothes for the girls) is Mandarina Duck from TK Maxx. 
Mustn't forget to mention the famous Matalan £5 sandals. So comfy and bargainous!
Working all day at a corporate event today and tomorrow. I didn't get a chance to take any photos today but I will try to get some tomorrow for a blog later in the week. Still have a few holiday outfit posts from the trip to the coast though so I'll share those in the meantime. Hope you're having a great week x

  1. Well if I had your legs I'd be wearing shorts more often av they look great and the orange top is a great choice to go with them.

  6. I find wearing shorts so liberating! I've had mine on for the past few days making the most of showing off my tan! Sadly I have only been indoors so not wearing anything decent enough for a picture though!

  7. Those are some legs! When I started losing weight last year I swore this year I would be in shorts. The toning hadn't been done in time so now I'm waiting for next summer instead....

  10. Hi Avril, I'm following you from Adelaide, where today the weather is wet and windy. I'm so longing to put some shorts on, could you perhaps do a feature on shorts for those not endowed with legs as nice as yours! It will be my first summer here and I really need some help.
