Some people have nightmares about Clowns, others about falling from a cliff or being beaten to death by a masked man. I however, have nightmares about shorts. 'How did this fear of shorts start?' I hear you cry, well ... 
  •  Reason Number 1 -  Being on holiday taught me that dried sea water mixed with chafing legs and denim leaves a rather painful rash! 
  •  Reason Number 2 - Topshop size 10 jeans...fine. Topshop size 10 shorts will not pull over my bum! I have to go one or two sizes larger in order to get my stupidly large derriere to fit comfortably without any cheeky bits hanging out. With this comes the problem of them then being MASSIVE round the waist...It's just not worth it.
  •  Reason Number 3 - They ride up my inner thighs when I walk. This then creates some stupid shaped piece of clothing that looks like I've cut my own shorts, very very wonky! 

A lot of my friends own some really nice denim shorts. A couple of them are old levis cut up and some are just from the high street. I've always become really really envious when seeing how great they look and how easily they can be dressed up and down. So when doing my usual daily browse on all the different clothes websites, I decided to brave it and click on 'Shorts'. With my hands shaking and beads of sweat trickling down my neck,  my persistence to keep scrolling down the page amazed me. 'Keep going Chlo' I told myself, 'You can do it'. Then I saw them...they were beautiful. 'Should I buy them? I won't be able to try them on! Click buy Chlo, Click it!'. If that wasn't bad enough, the days after until they were delivered haunted me...more nightmares....more irrational thoughts. 

Then the package came. It was like I was expecting a nutter to have sent me my mum's hand or something!  But believe it or not, I love them. They fit perfectly and the subtle high waist make my legs look much longer. The high cut also means that even if my thighs do touch ,the denim would be above the crucial point and not cause any chafing problems. The colour is also beautiful and now I just need to buy some more tops to go with them....damn. 

All in all...I'm chuffed. And that isn't all!!...

I made it into More! Magazine's Blog Boudoir. I entered and completely forgot about it, with some many amazing blogs I honestly didn't think I stood a chance. I got an email through to my phone yesterday with the news and at first thought it was spam! Then I couldn't wipe my smile off my face for the rest of the day and kept making weird little squirming noises because I just wanted to scream. So THANK YOU THANK YOU THANK YOU thank you, More! Magazine, words cannot explain how happy I am!

  3. Oh congrats! You look great in the shorts, and they really are a gorgeous colour.

    I have the same issues with my massive ass, also means dresses are an issue, too big on the top if they fit on the bottom, and too snug on the bottom if they fit up top. ARGH. How does Kim Kardashian make it look so easy? And she has a much larger backside xxx

  11. love the shorts, you look gorgeous! I think high wasted shorts are more flattering too. I know what u mean about topshop sizes, I always have to get a 12 and then they end up stretching and being too big!! gahh!! Congrats on getting into the magazine thats amazing!xxxx
