These shorts were bought a few years back and I consider it one of my more riskier buys. Although I still like them, I have not worn them all that much. When all is said and done, I usually prefer to go for something simpler like the white shorts I showed you before, but I actually do really like the look on the above photo when the shorts are combined with my white jacket. This year again, the shorts did not make it into my suitcase for the holiday; I had to be very picky to keep the weight down!

The t-shirt is very interesting too as it has a nice weave. And of course it’s fun to combine these shorts for some extra pattern mixing with a polkadot belt I acquired not so long ago.

My lovely t-shirt from Alldressedup that you have seen before as well, also looks good with these shorts.

It’s a very playful look for a 40 plusser and something I only wear on holiday or beach situations. Still it’s fun to have fun with colours and patterns certainly when you are on holiday!

Update: here are all the other outfits for this beach holiday outfit 2012 series:

  1. Tight bermudas and flower dress
  2. Black and white casual chic
  3. White short dress with denim jacket
  4. Pink shorts with oversized shirt
  5. White shorts with flower top
  6. Pink shorts with tank and blouse

Do you dress more colourful or adventurous when you are on holiday?
