LONG SHORTSASOS top, ASOS shorts, Catarzi Hat, Louboutin heels (substitute)

WORK SHORTS. Having a full-time job, being at university, keeping up and trying to grow a fashion and travel blog and working on the launch of a second blog (details to be released soon!) sometimes feels borderline ridiculous.

Whenever I have a minute to relax, I feel like I need to be doing something. I can't even watch a TV show anymore without doing something else at the same time! But at the end of the day, I love blogging and Grace's comment (sweetheart, you made my day) on my last post made it all worth it: "you work so hard you make it look so easy.. love love your blog". Ahh, Mission accomplished.

On days when I haven't had enough sleep and work is the last place I want to be, I like to look cute to make myself feel better. I've been obsessed with wearing shorts to work since the beginning of summer. So, when I put this outfit together weeks ago, I was like: Shorts to work without losing my job. Cool, no? Mission Accomplished.

P.S As I asked on my twitter and facebook, are you guys doing the whole pink coat thing or is it too mainstream? I'm really tempted. My friend replied 'Not all mainstream trends are bad'. Honey, I agree!

P.P.S Thank you for reading and for the fact that I'm not just talking to myself!

    I like the idea of shorts to work, not eveyone can pull that off! This is the first look, ever, that am not sure I like on you, I know my opinion can go take a sit somewhere probably, it’s just am used to AWWing at your looks – we all miss sometimes after all. I think the hat had to go, a slick pulled back hair would fit best, but you felt good that day and that trumps all else!

    Love the Asos shirt and hat reminds me of haloween.

    That top is EVERYTHING!!! I’m always tempted to buy beautiful statement pieces but then I think to myself “where the hell are you going to wear this to?” so this is why my wardrobe is full of bland everyday clothes. I’m living vicariously through you! Werrrk!

    Take care,
