It was definitely a pink day for Pink Mum today as I unearthed yet another sale purchase from the end of last summer-a Boden shift dress in bubblegum pink and yet another charity shop find-a brand new Boden coat complete with labels for £8!
With the arrival of the surprising yet much-appreciated sun this week, I decided to take the plunge and venture out and about this evening in my denim shorts-an expedition normally only undertaken in foreign climes or in August when my pins have had the benefit of 5 weeks of Mediterranean sun! I had been looking for denim shorts for a while but could find nothing which would suit unless you were aged 14 or a size 8! The problem? Too short, too tight, too 'distressed', too baggy, too high-waisted and that's without listing the problems with me! I was almost tempted to resort to tactics undertaken by many of us who grew up in the 70s-an old pair of jeans and a pair scissors! The only problem with this was that my jeans were also too tight, too baggy-you know how this goes! I found this pair in TX Maxx and they can actually be rolled up or down depending on how much flesh you want to flash. I also dug out a pink spotty Boden shirt, bought too in the sale last summer but you can find similar here.
I also couldn't resist these new navy suede sandals with, of course, sequin embellishments! I love that they have a slight heel-sometimes flats are too flat!
I'd love to hear your thoughts-is over 40 over the hill for shorts? Tx
