The one annoying thing about summer, when you're not comfortable with your not-slim body, is keeping covered but staying cool. I have spent the past few years boiling in leggings but this year I finally bought myself some shorts. But it was not easy. They're either too long, or too short. Then you have to find the right fit.
After much searching, I found these navy shorts from Marks & Spencer. Made with elastane so the shorts retain their shape. Not so thin that you can see my booty. Not thick so as to be hot. And pretty gold buttons that make the shorts looks more expensive than their £25 price tag.
I have worn these shorts loads this summer. Sometimes I team them with a stripey Breton and I pretend I am a sailor. Anchors Away!
