UPDATING MY WARDROBE: CYCLING SHORTS & DALMATIAN PRINT

Hey Everyone,

I hope you’re all doing well! I’m back with a new fashion post today and I’m finally confessing my love for cycling shorts as well as sharing a new animal print favourite with you!

When I finally invested in some of those cycling-style shorts (Primark, £1.50 not see through, thank me later) that every influencer and their mum is successfully styling out – I started to panic. What tops I could wear with them? I didn’t want to whip out my sports bra and crop tops and look like an extra for the Call On Me video. I’m not a huge fan of flashing the old groin out in public (under clothes, obviously) – I don’t think I’m cool enough to pull off that crop top and cycling shorts gym girl look, you know? Anyway, so I was about to return the shorts when I remembered the other 90% of my wardrobe (oversized t-shirts and sweatshirts) were also options worth considering. Problem solved! These shorts go so well with longline t-shirts and jumpers – the perfect summer to autumn transition outfit. Whack on a pair of chunky trainers and you’re good to go! Also, because Primark don’t sell their clothes online, I’ve tagged similar ones below!

I’ve already written about my love for oversized t-shirts in my previous “Updating My Wardrobe” post but this one is different. Look at the print! I didn’t even think Dalmatian print had made it into the fashion world but I was so wrong. Apparently its been a thing for ages and I’ve just been living under a rock. I flipping LOVE it! it’s like polka dots but more satisfying. I love how well it goes with bright colours too (hence all of the red in this outfit). This particular top end gifted to me from I Saw it First and is currently £5 in the sale so, go and grab it whilst you can! It’s also available in black, grey, nude, white and sand. I’ve tagged them all below!
