New Look Summer 2015

Thursday, April 16, 2015

One of the things that came out when I was gathering ideas for the #OMCZ challenge that I run is that a lot of us are scared of shorts, or rather scared of wearing shorts. 

I really like wearing shorts on holiday, they combat the chub rub and tend to be easy to throw on items that are summery BUT I really struggle to find pairs that fit and are comfy.

When New Look contacted me about trying some of the items in their holiday shop the first Item I went to were the denim shorts. 

I liked that they are knee length as most shorts I've been looking at for my holiday are too short. 

Normally I'd only go for a dark wash but I'm really into pale denim at the moment. These are in a size 22. They are a little tight but I can get them fastened and wear them comfortably I'm just a bit blugy over the top. I'm hoping by the time I go on holiday I'll have lost a couple more inches and they will sit better.

I was also sent the brown cross over back tshirt. I went for this in a size 20 as I've tried these on a couple of times in store and the 20 has always felt the best. Looking at the pictures it looks a big tight but it feel fine on so I'm not sure.

I wore these last weekend when we had a few sunny days. Sadly the sun went in while I was taking pictures.

The garden is also almost done. That patch of rubble next to the steps has been filled with concrete and we just need some new gates and railing round the edges and it's all done!

It's only 9 weeks till my holiday and I am so ready for it. With everything going on here I need a break and I have my first two items ready to go. What else do I need to add to my list? I did have a bikini as well from somewhere else but I had to send it back as the top was about 4 inches too short!

A massive thank you to New Look for sending me these items, as always all opinions are my own and I am hoping the back will be finished very soon so I can find my new photo taking place.
