There really is something about a good pair of tailored shorts. They just seem to have a perfect fit and are 100 times more attractive than a pair of denim hotpants (on me anyway!). I seem to have a shape that's smaller on top, and bigger on the bottom, so i'm so pleased that this season we can wear longer lengths on the bottom half. Think midis and tailored shorts, and even culottes although I haven't been brave enough to try them out yet. The thing I like most about tailored shorts is that they can easily be dressed up or down. This pair look just as cute teamed with a shirt and heeled sandals. This outfit can be worn with or without the boyfriend coat, although personally I love a coat that's just slung over the shoulders; casual cool.

These shorts were bought from good old Toppers last year, but i've seen a lot of pairs around so far and i'm sure there's more to come as the weather warms up. I must have been thinking ahead when I bought them as they're this season's colour; pastel blue. The white top makes this outfit more casual, the sheer floral detailing adds a little something special to an otherwise plain white top it's and perfect for wearing on a summers day. For my 21st I was a very lucky lady, as my mum bought me the Mulberry bag, and my boyfriend; James bought me the matching purse.. I could not contain my excitement when I opened my presents as i've always wanted one. Now we come to what I think is possibly my favourite item that ive bought so far for Spring, the cleated sole sandals which I featured in my last post. Ive had various comments on them so far ranging from 'omg I love your sandals' to 'what the hell are they, is this a joke?' haha although the second comment came from a boy so what do you expect. Comments aside, I really am so pleased I managed to get my hands on them, they're one of those things you buy that you wouldn't mind if you were the only person in the world to like them so i'm sure you'll be seeing them in a lot more outfits to come.

So what do you think of my casual tailoring? Do you think tailoring should be kept smart or can it also be more casual?
