As Inspired By… Sitting Pretty

Posted in Daily Outfits.

You beautiful bloggers are so utterly stylish, I could do an As Inspired By… post every day!

I’m a huge fan of Claire from Sitting Pretty. Her girly, vintage style is right up my street and her weekly outfit catch-ups are packed with pretty outfits. One in particular caught my eye – it’s Tuesday’s outfit in this lineup. And here’s my take on Claire’s preppy shorts and shirts combo…



Primark shirt, H&M shorts, TK Maxx sandals,  thrifted bag and jacket, Topshop ring

I’m really getting into these simple, laidback outfits. These mid-length shorts are great for cooler days and the sandals and bird ring add some vintage charm.

I loved Claire’s cool white and blue pairing – perfect for sweltering summer days. What do you think? Do you favour something simple when it’s hot or do you go for all-out glamour, no matter what the weather? Let me know!

PS – I still need your photos for this week’s Wardrobe Wonderings. I need two full length (ish) photos of you rocking a dressed up AND dressed down outfit – email them to me along with a link to your blog and you’ll feature on next week’s Wardrobe Wonderings – the results post!



Oooh I love your take on Sitting Pretty’s outfit, it’s very inspired. I love those H&M shorts – the length & style suit you so well! I wonder how recently they were in store as they’re the kind of shorts that would suit me. Hmm…

Those sandals are lovely, Jen! The shorts are a great shape.
After enforced uniformity at a strict all-girls grammar and years spent in the hellhole of the pinstriped corporate sector I’m OTT glam all the way!


I love the shorts – they really suit you! I would love to wear an outfit like this – I just don’t like wearing shirts that much, I feel so uncomfortable and awkward in them…

I love the shorts, they really suit you! I try to go as simple as possible for hot days, i’m so bad with hot weather! Bring on autumn I say! x


Those H&M shorts are lovely, Jen. Look really versatile – you’ll be able to wear them over tights in winter. Will try to dig out pics for next week’s Wardrobe Wonderings but I never really do dressed up, going out outfits so will struggle a bit! xx
