The Five WOWs: Pom Pom Shorts & Other Stories

Pom Pom Shorts, Pom Pom Accessories

4. Necklace | Handmade By Neha Bajaj  //  5. Shorts | Ark Clothing

Ark Clothing asked me to share some of their awesome shorts with you folks and when I saw these adorable little pom pom shorts, I couldn’t resist building a little story around them. They are precious. Team them up with a white vest for any late-Summer vacationers and if you’re stuck in the UK for the rest of the year, grab those black opaque tights and stacked boots!

Don’t you just love handmade? These indie designers take a trend and work it up in the most creative ways possible. I’d love a statement necklace like this, so much classier than those chunky neon beaded ones that were so popular for a while!

The child-like scarf is my nod to the upcoming Winter – I am so excited to wear tights and boots and coats and scarves again. These giant pom poms hold memories of the Winter accessories I’d wear as a kid.

Outfit Post: Fifties Fiesta

Fifties Style, Rockabilly, Swimsuit

It feels slightly strange to be posting these while I’m snuggled on the sofa in my cardi’ with my hottie, but for those going on a ‘winter sun’ holiday they might give you some ideas. I really wanted to get one of these gorgeous swimsuits from ModCloth but, with my impending dive into freelance mere weeks away, I decided I needed to be more careful with my money so I opted for this fifties style swimsuit from George at ASDA. I’ve always thought that their underwear fit my shape really well for the price and this costume was no exception, so I wasn’t too disappointed I chose the cheaper option.

Fifties, Rockabilly Style Swimsuit

I’m not a big swimwear fan – I don’t like beach holidays and I spend the entire time feeling very self conscious so it’s been rather an exercise in confidence to firstly pose for these photos by the pool (in front of people, argh!) and then actually publish them for all you lovely folk to see. Opting for this Rockabilly style is a great way to dress for the beach while still feeling fun instead of exposed. It’s super easy; just go for polka dot or gingham check patterns and a mismatch of black, red, blue and white. Cherry and apple prints work well too! Of course I don’t recommend the jewellery for sunbathing if you want to avoid a weird tan ;) but it’s fine for going out for breakfast!
