Shorts and a shirt for the City

As soon as I put my shorts on this morning the sun went in – which says it all really. But having got that far, I persevered and kept them on well – just because….. Just because I didn’t get around to changing, just because it was warm enough to keep them on, just because I like them and just because I felt like flying the flag for all 46 year olds who want to wear shorts!

But there is always that dilemma of what to wear them with. If we lived by the sea, or if it was a day in the garden it would be a boho top and flip flops all the way. But as I needed to go into town and do a hundred and one other jobs locally, I didn’t want to look as though I was about to chuck my bucket and spade into the car and head to the nearest beach for an ice cream.

So I felt that this shirt with a scalloped hem from Cos (£45) would add just a little bit of structure and tailoring to my look. Well, insofar as I ever really think about these things.

And that was it really. I also wore this shirt for a night out on Friday with black fitted trousers and big ear-rings and I have other plans for it too. I just love a good shirt for the summer!
