Fashion | Khaki Striped Shorts in Albufeira.

I don't know about you guys, but when I go on holiday, I like my outfits to be simple & comfortable. The classic shorts and t-shirt combination is definitely my go to look whenever I go abroad and it's a look that in no way needs to be boring. Don't get me wrong, basics are great, I've got a wardrobe full of them, but todays' look is a little bit different.

Just before I went away I had a mad dash (as you do) around Primark and managed to bag myself this bad ass pair of shorts. I was instantly attracted to the pair for a number of reasons... The elasticated waist, the khaki stripes, front & back pockets, but it was mainly the length. Maybe I'm old now, at the age of 26, but I hate shorts that leave your butt cheeks hanging out the bottom of them. That's not a good look surely? With these they cover my bum with plenty of room to spare, they feel super comfortable on & I love the way they look with this crop.
The white crop I'm wearing is actually part of a coord set from Luxemme. Don't you just love the versatility of coords, being able to wear the pieces together or separately with different outfits. I love the lace bottom of this one as it makes me feel that bit more comfortable. I'm very fussy when it comes to crop tops, the more coverage the better for me so this bright white one from Luxemme is perfect!
They may not be the most fashionable choice of footwear, but for me white pumps are a holiday essential. I always buy a pair before going abroad because my feet burn like crazy in sandals so anything to cover my toots is a bonus in my eyes.

What's your go to daytime holiday look?

Thank you for reading. Claire.x

    1. Totally agree! There's nothing worse than being in uncomfortable clothes when its 30degrees outside. Eeeek!
