I was really kindly gifted these gorgeous linen and lace bloomers recently by Australian label and boutique Indigo. I say bloomers rather than shorts because they've got that slight A-line, over-sized feel to them. The little flash of antique-feeling lace is always a winner as it means you can wear your blackest, chunkiest boots and beaten up leathers all at once and still feel feminine and bit summery. The weather at the moment is so weird and ridiculously bitter for the end of August. While I'm praying for an Indian summer, outfits like this teamed with a really chunky knit are ideal for battling the confusing temperatures.
