Looking at these photos shortly after closing your window due to the chill is a bit of an odd contrast, isn't it? Here's hoping the sun comes back by the end of the week as forecast, as my pins are slowly but surely starting to resemble something other than milk bottles.

After work, my mum and I decided to go for a stroll through the park to make the most of not being on a train/in the office/it not raining. Despite having lived here for a good decade, I've never really wandered round Admiral's Park, having tended to stick to the bits nearer to town, and thus nearer to Topshop and M&S. For this particularly sunny occasion, I donned my sunflower shorts (again) and my now go-to bag from Cath Kidston, which the lovely team presented me with after my two weeks interning at their Head Office, and it's definitely come in handy over the past fortnight. I was unsure whether to post these photos as I'm well aware that I'm not the size 6 lithe fashion blogger that saturates and is most successful in the blogging world, but in the end I decided it would've been a complete waste of time taking and editing these photos to have even more self-confidence doubts, and it's hardly new to you if you've ever seen the front pages of rubbishy celebrity gossip magazines. So, enjoy the cellulite guys, I'm off to watch the cricket.

  2. I wore the smock dress in this gorge sunflower print from AA today! I love the print so much, and the shorts are so cool too. And you rock those shorts girl! I'd much prefer realistic and 'normal' sized girls like you :)

  6. Soooo after opening this post and reading your thoughts I had a celebratory dance. Finally someone who a lot of women can relate to, just because I'm not a skinny mini doesn't mean I can't wear shorts. I'm so glad you decided to post, the blogging world should be about all shapes and sizes and I get fed up of just seeing the tiny people getting all the attention. Thanks for putting yourself out there and sharing, now where's my short shorts?

  8. I love the sunflower shorts, I tried (but failed!) to win a similar pair on ebay before I went away for the summer. Cute top you've paired them with too.

  12. I love the shorts and I like your posts and photos a lot better than any of those identikit skinnypin bloggers with the vacuous blogs (and brains). I often wonder why I do it though as I don't fit into that category either and beat myself up about it. Not sure blogging has a positive effect on my bank balance or on my self confidence.

  13. I love you, and echo Char's comment above. I think you look fierce, and having the balls to wear short shorts is half the battle in my book! (I do love that print too) ♥ Claire at Jazzpad
