I have been itching to share these shorts in a blog post ever since I got my hands on them, but I haven't had the chance to until now (finally!). They're a gorgeous print and amazing quality, which is expected from Reiss, they're surprisingly versatile in that you can add the belt or go without it - the choice is yours. I don't know about you, but in London I tend to shy away from shorts and skirts that look too beachy I feel I need to still look a little sophisticated when in the city and these are the perfect shorts to do so in. I kept it pretty simple with a black cami from Topshop and longline ASOS cardigan, anybody from the UK knows how the weather can change from one minute to another. I wore these fringe booties from Quiz which I think are a great choice of footwear for summer in the city, as well as adding some boho vibes. Finally I went for my bucket bag and new Calvin Klein watch.

  8. You are absolutely gorgeous! As are those shorts. I'm more of a jeans kinda girl, but these might just tempt me to reconsider my habit..

    1. It's getting too hot for a leather jacket (honestly, my staple piece) so I've been reaching for this long cardigan instead, I love it! X
