Red tartan that is.
On the much dreaded shopping trip with Strop (new name for hormonal 17 year old sister. I think it suits her!) the other day I bought some fabulous red tartan shorts. Exactly like these but with a one button fastening & in tartan, obviously.
When I tried them on at home & came downstairs in them, the general consensus was that they are awful. But I don't care because they suit me & I think they are far from awful. The fact everyone else hates them makes me enjoy wearing them all the more!
They are not made for shrinking violets so I have decided that they look best with black opaque tights, these ankle boots which are almost exactly like mine;
and a black fitted, skinny rib, roll neck jumper I have.
They're too loud to wear with anything coloured or printed, it would either look awful and/or cheap. And bare legs are out as they would make the shorts look tacky, and the blue colouring my legs would take on from being bare in this weather would clash with them!
I am going to wear them out on the town next week.
I am home alone for a whole, entire glorious week from Sunday so I shall be making the most of it.
Friday night of next week is earmarked for the debut of the tartan shorts & a night out with my best mate & a few other girls from the stables.
The shorts may not be to everyone's taste but I don't care because I love, love, love, love them and they suit me & that is all I am concerned about! :o)
