I've been home a couple days and as I mentioned in my last post I've recreated some of the outfits that I wore when I was at my boyfriends. The weather was so nice whilst I was down there, so much so that the pairs of tights that I had packed never got a look in. I was so glad I wore this when we spent 4 hours in the Natural History Museum cos, let me tell ya, it was a scorcher and I aint the best when it comes to heat, children and crowds. Though looking at the nice tan I have acquired I shouldn't really complain, especially as it looks like I've spent a week somewhere exotic when I've only been in England.
So lets give this kimono some attention - cos isn't it just great? I picked it up for £15 at a shop in Leeds called Lime, I don't know if its a national chain or just a northern thing but it's like those many cheap-borderline-tacky-but-there's-sometimes-nice-things sorta shops. They had quite a few kimonos and some, urgh, gorgeous shoes which I avoided getting as I'm moving around so much lately and I just can't carry it all.
These shorts (and the ones in my previous post) were the result of many a lengthy and tedious Ebay search that ended in being outbid multiple times and a pair or two sent back. I have a hard time getting shorts to fit me because of my hip to waist ratio, I either end up with a gaping waist or cutting off the circulation to my thighs. I persevered, however, and ended up scoring this amazing pair. Admittedly when they first arrived on my doorstep they were far too snug around the waistband but they were such perfect shorts that I couldn't part with them. Fast forward a pizza free month later and my dream shorts finally fit! I'm hoping that with my running and yoga they'll continue to fit me, haha.
Because this was a pleasant accidental discovery.
