Last Sunday marked a momentous day for our family. It was the first day so far this year that one of the kids got up in the morning and put shorts on. Without tights. Yes, it was sunny and the temperature hit a very pleasant 19 degrees!
My younger son usually lives in shorts from the end of April until the middle of October, so it’s a reflection of our appalling weather that we’d made it almost to the end of May before getting the shorts out. And it wasn’t my boy who got them out first – it was my little girl!
All of these items have featured on the blog before worn with tights but it was nice to see them worn ‘properly’ at last.
My daughter is wearing Next shorts, with a panda print and a nautical Next Tshirt. She’s wearing them with an M&S navy cardigan, which has become a real wardrobe staple. I never would have guessed, when someone got it for her as a Christmas present, how useful it would prove to be.
Her pink Converse
are getting an outing, and I think they look really good with the shorts. The only thing I don’t like are the socks – which are green with white spots! I prefer her to wear little, dainty white school socks if they’re going to be on display. Green spotty socks or pink stripy socks should just be for under jeans!
I’m hoping we haven’t seen the last of the good weather and we get to see a lot more of the shorts and Tshirts over the coming months.
