Favourite Blog Posts of The Month + Linen OOTD

by - May 01, 2019

I'm trying something new, okay? Throughout the month I've been saving blog posts I've read that I enjoyed and thought I had to share so that at the end of the month I'd do a post compiling them all. I think it's interesting to see this kind of post because I love it when other bloggers do it and if I have a bit of free time I'll always check the articles/posts they mention so I'm hoping you'll enjoy it too.

This outfit was all about the shorts. I got them when I went shopping for a blazer. Does this happen to you often? Do you go shopping for something and then end up getting something else? I loved these shorts and after trying a couple that were very see-through, I found these. They're still a bit see-through in the back which isn't ideal because you could kinda see my t-shirt tucked inside and that doesn't look very pretty but I can get past that. They're very wrinkled as you can see but that's the beauty of linen. They were super comfy and pairing them with a simple t-shirt looks awesome although I am excited to style it with different pieces.
And I don't know if you can tell but I'm back to being a brunette! I've dyed my hair back to brown a few weeks ago but I hadn't taken photos yet so that's why you're only seeing it now but I'm happy I'm back to brown. I was getting tired of the same colour and having to go back to the hair salon every month to get my hair done, it was exhausting and expensive. Do you like brown more or do you prefer ginger? Let me know down below!
