The Zara Skort Of My Dreams

Oh hey! I just wanted to write a little blog post about these bloody insane shorts I got from Zara a few weeks ago. I initially thought they were a skirt and was a little unsure as to whether I liked the whole skort kinda vibe, as shorts just do not suit me at all, but these were pleasantly surprising! The weather is so temperamental here in Bergamo at the minute that any day that looks to be promising weather wise is spent making the most of my summer wardrobe, and these shorts got nothing but compliments.

They're a super flattering length as they are not -long- shorts but not glorified knickers either, and the paperbag style waist really cinches you in to create a lovely silhouette. The fabric is light enough to keep you cool but still really good quality, and I am obsessed with the broderie anglais/crochet style detailing against the cornflower blue gingham. Everyone knows that gingham is huge this season in a variety of colour schemes, and these shorts scream summer festival vibes.

I paired mine with this gorgeous sheer top which I bought from Topshop around two years ago; it has black embroidered detailing all up the front which you can't really see in these photos and cute little pom poms along the sleeves and bottom. The fact it isn't skin tight and a really thin fabric means it is great for really hot days, but still keeps you covered up if you're a bit self conscious.

Shoe wise I just went for a pair of black pointed loafers, but this would work well with gladiator sandals, slip on loafers or even boots depending on the look you're going for. This is a shorter post than normal as I don't have much to say other than these are probably the best thing I have bought this summer clothes-wise and I pray the weather stays decent throughout summer so I can get more use out of them (wishful thinking, I know!). However, I have also worn them with tights and boots on one of the cooler days here and thought that looked really good too, so I will definitely be taking them through to Autumn/Winter with me.

Do you have a certain favourite in your current wardrobe? Are you a fan of 'skorts' or prefer clothes to stay in their lane - shorts/skirts?
