 i have never made a secret of the fact that i love tesco's clothing. i popped in on my way home from the gym, first to matalan, and then to tesco, and came home with the things in the top photo, and several others on my wishlist..

i decided i would wear these shorts straight away and envisioned them with a blouse of some kind, i'm not sure this is the right one, as it's quite long and oversized and therefore needs to be tucked in, which makes it look a bit bunched up at the waist? i wonder if it would be better with black tights and shoes, but i know i will be trying them with various different tops and tights..

the shorts fit really nicely, and i think they have a tailored look about them which makes me comfortable wearing them a little more smartly dressed for work..i've brought the orange jumper along as well, so that i can throw that on over the blouse for this evening's fireworks..i really seem to have been bitten by the shorts bug recently, i've bought quite a few pairs this year, whcih is unusual for me - i used to think they were for summer holidays to spain only, but now i'm rather liking thick tights, shorts and comfy knitwear, and anything with a 'tweedy heritage' feel seems to be grabbing my attention!

i also couldn't resist the cute bobble hat, although it does mean another hat i need to get around to wearing in my ever-growing collection..

what are your thoughts on shorts for winter? perfect for fireworks night if you wrap up in plenty of knitted layers?

also, please remember that today is the last day for secret santa - sign up details can be found by clicking the link in the sidebar, and for those who have already signed up, you'll get an email by monday..


  1. Shorts make me nervous as I don't care for my legs, but you look fabulous!

  2. I love the jumper, such a gorgeous colour. I always overlook Tesco for clothes but may well take a look next time I do the shopping as your buys look lovely. Your shorts look great on you too, they are a really great length x

  3. I really love the tweed shorts, I don't usually wear shorts but think I may brave them with tights this winter! x

  4. I just got the nicest cardigan from Tesco- and I LOVE that jumper. Orange is such a great colour, and it will look lovely with those tweed shorts, too!
    OOOH can't wait for the secret santa!

  5. Lovely jumper, I never find anything I like in Tesco, must look harder!
    Fun Hat :)

  6. The shorts really suit you, I think I actually prefer shorts in Winter as you can wear lots of layers and wear tights too which is good for someone as pale as myself! xxx

  7. I love those shorts, they really look good on you.
    I do like shorts for winter. I tend to wear 100 denier tights (or two pairs of 60 denier) to keep my legs toasty warm. x

  8. Love the hat and shorts! Shorts scare me, i look bloody awful in them! x

  9. i love shorts in winter and wear them quite a bit.
    Love your buys and how you styled the shorts x

  10. I never really wore shorts with tights cos I find skirts comfier but these look lovely on you Char. I love tesco for clothes too, it's always too tempting when I go food shopping!

  11. Loving the new buys. Nothing beats a comfy pair of shorts and thick tights! And everyone needs a warm hat, especially when its that cute!
