Seeing Stars

So the other day I was in BHS looking at their formal dresses for prom when I saw these shorts. Well, technically my wee sister saw these shorts. In my defence they were on sale, but I'm practically an adult and I bought clothes from the kids department.

I have to say that I was kind of surprised and worried that they fitted me; in fact these 14-15 years old shorts were slightly too baggy. I’m not sure if it is me, seeing as I'm underweight and have literally nothing in the way of hips, or if it’s just the fit. I remember the reason I had to move on to adults clothes when I was wee was because the kids clothes were getting too short but were really loose on me. I'm going to go with that theory or I'm going to just get worried.

In all honesty, I would probably shop from the kids section of some shops more if I fitted the stuff, especially for things like shorts. I was struggling last summer to find cheap shorts that were long enough to well, be considered shorts. Most of them were very skimpy – and as much as I don’t judge people for wearing them, I personally don’t do skimpy. So far this year, it doesn’t look that much better but for obvious reasons, the kids shorts are a lot longer. Who knows, maybe I’ll start getting in the way of buying kids clothes more. Just as long as no-one psychoanalyses this as nostalgia.

(I love my short hair so much right now)

Shopping in the men’s and kids section, what a rebel

All these pictures are a bit blurry because I was stupid and took them at late o’clock on a ridiculously slow shutter speed (to be fair it was only 9 pm). I'm also grinning like an idiot in all of them as I got someone to take them for me and I kept pulling funny poses while waiting for them to take the picture, then laughing at myself. I look so weird when I laugh too.

I'm wearing:
Top from H&M
Shorts from Tammy, BHS on sale for £4.20
Tights from Primark 3 pack for £3
Boots from Clarks I need to get more shoes
Necklace from Primark for £1.50
Watch from Asda (old)on sale for £6

Today I'm listening to:

 (p.s: sorry for being a lazy blogger lately, I don’t have much time on my hands between the history assignments, chemistry experiments, work and existential crises I'm supposed to be dealing with, I should pick up the pace again by May)
