#ootdfridays Number 16

Today it clouded over, my feet kill after spending pretty much the whole of yesterday walking and time has just flown right past me so I am not on one of my little adventures. Sorry, you'll just have to put up with garden this week.

This weeks outfit I am embracing autumn colours with these fabulous shorts. They were part of Jameela Jamil's original collection for Very about a year or two ago (can't remember exactly when). Jameela Jamil is a TV presenter/ radio DJ/ Company columnist as well as writing her own blog and many other things. She is a complete inspiration to me as she isn't afraid to be different, she stands up for herself and her opinions are usually the right ones. I love Jameel Jamil's style so naturally I had to have a glance at her collection and fell in love with it instantly. These shorts were my favourite along with some knee-high socks with paw prints on the knees which I also own. I can't find her autumn/winter collection, might not be out yet, but I loved all her other collections so I'm excited to see what is next.

I love this shirt too. It's covered in tiny studs and has a massive draped, cut out back. I'm surprised that I liked the back of the shirt because I don't usually go for the whole cut-out design look but I think it looks quite flattering. However, because of the sheer material, I have to wear a vest underneath which kind of spoils the cut-out back so I never really focus on that part of the shirt. It's a bit of a shame because I do really like that detail of the shirt but I'm just going to have to live with it.
Shirt: Miss Selfridge
Shorts: Jameela Jamil for
Shoe: Converse
At the risk of looking too formal, I grabbed my trusty Converses to finish the look. I've had these for years now and probably need replacing. They look in fairly good condition from the outside but inside it is starting to fall apart. They'll last another couple of months I think, maybe less. I hate throwing away shoes.

Got an OOTD you just have to share. Instagram it using the hash-tag #ootdfridays and I could feature it in next weeks post.

Have a wonderful weekend!

Silly pose of the post: it was a little chilly outside.
