Cherry Pie : You asked for it: OOTD Featuring Topshop and Matalan

You asked for it: OOTD Featuring Topshop and Matalan

Topshop Grandad Shirt
Matalan Ditsy Shorts

My first proper outfit post using my new tripod! I appreciate that the photos aren't the greatest but I'm still getting used to it so bare with me! My hair is total mess and I have no make up on but you said you wanted more outfit posts so your wishes are my command!

Anyway, I thought I'd show you my current outfit which I decided to wear after yesterday's unbearably hot weather, believing that it would be the same today. It hasn't been. I'll probably get a bit chilly later and have to stick some trousers on!

It's quite a simple outfit and not something I would have dreamt of wearing even a year ago. Shorts have always been a no-no for me but I decided to pick these up on a whim from Matalan as I loved them so much! I have some sort of weird phobia about showing my legs, but I'm sick of sweating horribly in the hot weather while wearing a pair of jeans so I have finally embraced the shorts! I love that these are quite floaty and not too fitted, I also love the pattern and the fact that they were only £8! Unfortunately I can't find them on the website but they do have loads of similar pairs available!

The shirt is so comfortable and great for the hot weather as it's very loose fitting. It'd be quite nice to have this in a few other colours as well!

PPS - I can't believe that literally everybody who commented on my last blog post was a Jacqueline Wilson fan in their childhood! I was a bit worried that the post would be a bit boring for you all but I'm glad I got lots of lovely comments on it, hooray for childhood books!
