What I Wore: Spring Sunbathing


(Jumper: H&M, Belt: Dorothy Perkins, Shorts: Red Herring at Debenhams)

Had an afternoon date with the girls at Lyme Park (a beautiful national trust site, where a lot of costume dramas and films (such as Pride and Prejudice - if you remember that infamous Colin Firth white t-shirt lake scene) have been set). I personally don't like to expose too much of my body. I generally follow the Victoria Beckham rule of if you flash your legs - keep the top half covered and vice versa, so when coming to hotter climates, I find outfit selecting much more of a task. I also have a HUGE problem with my legs and have zero confidence in getting them out. However, because of how warm it has been, I didn't really have much choice, so I braved my insecurities and got them out. My red herring shorts are great as they are baggy so if anything slim my thighs slightly and are a great light-weight material to keep you cool. They cost me about £8, but this was back in January, so whether they still retail at that price or at all for that matter, I'm not sure. Following Mrs B's rule, I covered my top half up, throwing on my favourite H&M nautical piece which cost £7.99, but is currently in the sale for less @ http://www.hm.com/gb/department/LADIES - so go grab a bargain ladies! Again, it's a lovely light material and makes an outfit look instantly chic. I then rounded up the outfit with my over-used tan belt which I got for a bargain at £3 from Dorothy Perkins. I love anything navy and tan together so I couldn't resist. Also, the high-waisted shorts swamp my child-like waist so rather than flash the entire Peak District, I kept some self-respect.
