How amazing are these shorts?! Thank you to Emily and Glamorous for sending me these shorts, I'm a little bit in love with them! I'm not usually a shorts and tshirt kind of girl, but they're a summer holiday staple so I thought it was high time I added some nice denim shorts to my wardrobe. I love the American flag pattern, so I've kept the rest of the outfit quite plain to let the stars and stripes stand out. These shorts would be perfect for wearing to festivals or on your summer holidays, or you could dress them up with heels and lots of jewellery for a night out. They are quite short though so I've worn them with some tights to avoid inflicting my pasty legs on people, sadly me and the sun don't get on so fake tan is my only hope!

Sticking with the American theme, I've worn it with an eagle claw necklace from Topshop. Well, I'm not sure if it's actually an eagle claw but it's definitely some kind of bird! This is one of my favourite necklaces, I love the little turquoise stone, and the fact that it's on a really long chain. There's nothing I hate more than necklaces which stop just at the neckline and end up getting hidden underneath my top!

These American flag shorts are such a bargain compared to Topshop's version, and at the moment Glamorous are offering free worldwide shipping too. Plus you can get 20% off everything with the code GLAMOROUS20. There's no excuse not to order yourself a little treat!

Do you like denim shorts? What's on your wishlist from Glamorous?

  22. I've really grown to like American print shorts, and they look especially good on you! I didn't notice the Eagle necklace at first, but that's a really clever touch haha.

    P.s. Just found your blog and I am in love with your layout. It's simple but I just love how organised it seems :)
