Who Wears Short (Leather Look) Shorts!?

...Well that would be me. I'm not conviced, especially with my paler than pale legs and cellulite but I have come to realise that nobody really notices these things; and that it is better to just wear what you like and not worry too much about what others might say. I don't mind if people don't like this because I think it takes a certain type of person to wear what are essentially laser-cut lederhosen, and  I have cheated because although I wore these all day, I didn't venture too far from the house, and to go out in the evening I changed into peg trousers (yawn) but hey! First baring of the pins of the season. Can't be bad in mid April, though I have a sneaking suspicion that this year is going to be a weather repeater of 2008/9, in which I do believe we had a stinking hot spring and then rain from May-September. Please, please weather fronts: prove me wrong!

So I tried to minimise the impact of the white legs by popping on my little Clarks boots, which only served to highlight that they are the colour I woul like my legs to be. But I think they look ok-they definitely play down the leatheriness of the shorts, which, coupled with a leopard jacket, could be trotting right on over into slutsville. I think I've safely kept them on the border though-it's like fashion maths, the only equation that can keep this look correct divides leopard and faux leather with a topknot and a man's tee. And clumpy boots. I imagine this is a variation on what I would wear if I were at Coachella, though perhaps I'd add in some fringing or feathers. For the UK though I think a slicker take is required.

So yesterday I also decided, sort of at random, to 'ombre' my hair which I think is a posh way of saying 'dip dye the ends.' It's exactly as it sounds-I dunked the bottom 3 inches or so of my hair in some bleach (Jerome Russell, the stalwart staple of every teenage frosted-tip dream, not Mr Muscle or anything like that. Proper stuff)  and then wrapped it in a bit of tinfoil and left it to bake for 10 mins or so. It was completely simple, I just got Adrian to give me a shout 10 mins later, wiped a bit off to check the colour, and since my hair seems to take bleach really well, I'd got the colour I wanted so I rinsed it out. I will show you some pictures tomorrow if I can. I actually love it, I have shorter hair than most people who wear this trend but it actually works ok and in a wierd way makes my hair look longer. It did feel a bit crispy after so I put some intensive conditioner on it and today I've styled it and it actually looks quite cool. A little grungy, a little edgy, and I'm not sure if I'll be able to wear it up because it will look like I am wearing a fake blonde ponytail, but all in all=success.

I love the summer. Well, when the weather plays ball! 

Has anyone got any recommendations for fake tan? As you can see I need to get on it....

Have a wonderful day!
