Let’s be brave and wear shorts...
Admittedly, as I write this, it is raining and a little bit chilly! However, despite our wonderful weather, this time of year does give us some perfect opportunities to ‘air’ our legs! A bit like opening the windows and letting the air in, allowing our legs some time in the fresh air can feel refreshing and invigorating. 
Although, I often hear quite the opposite… thoughts such as ‘I don’t wear shorts because….I don’t like my knees’ or ‘because I don’t like my thighs’ or ‘I have veins on my legs I’m not comfortable to show’. 
We women are brilliant at negative self-talk. We wouldn’t judge another woman for wearing shorts so why do we give ourselves such a hard time? 
With this in mind, I challenge you to look in the mirror without judgement. If you were looking at the reflection of another woman, you would be kind, so be kind to yourself. Stop your train of thought if it turns negative. Go on, give it a go.

Let’s have a look at some outfits that can easily be transitioned from jeans to shorts.

First up, these fabulous soft pink Joules shorts. This style is great for those who prefer a structured shape as the fit is like a pair of jeans. You may think they are too short for you but in actual fact, sometimes, shorter is more flattering as long shorts can make us feel frumpy. If you prefer to detract from your legs, then shifting the focus to a slogan t-shirt works a treat. This style gives us a casual look and the soft pink is a great summer colour. https://blackdiamondboutique.co.uk/collections/shorts/products/joules-shirley-pink-denim-shorts
Shorts don’t have to always be casual. These navy Numph Nukaran shorts are perfect to team with a smarter top. The fluid fabric acts much like a skirt looks fab when dressed up with sandals or down with trainers. 
Playsuits are making a comeback and I love this really fun version at the boutique. https://blackdiamondboutique.co.uk/collections/shorts/products/numph-nucarly-playsuit   So easy to wear, just pop on your white trainers and go! 
If you love the look of the playsuit but prefer separates, Sam has the solution for you with these two Saint Tropez/B Young separates. Super comfortable elasticated waist shorts with matching top. Great together and super versatile to split up too.


So, how do you feel about giving your legs an airing this summer?
