Spring Must Have - Ark's Vintage Levi's Denim Shorts

Wow, so yesterday was the first day of Spring...I don't know if it was official or not, but it hit 18 degrees  and was the first time the sun's been out for a while.  As its a bit of a rarity to enjoy a sunny Sunday in the UK, especially in March, I spent it how the rest of the country did - crammed into a traditional pub garden to enjoy a refreshing drink under the much needed sunshine!

Too hot for leather jackets
However, I was completely inappropriately dressed in jeans, strappy top and a leather jacket and just sat and baked. It made me think that it's finally time to get my spring/summer wardrobe out. Though, there's a staple that I'm missing that I believe is an absolute must have for not just this Spring/Summer, but for many many to come.  A pair of Vintage Levis Denim shorts.

I've always been a huge fan of denim shorts in the Summer as they go with everything and are super comfortable.  But, these are the absolute classics.  I was having a browse on and they have a lovely choice in all different sizes and at the bargain price of £19.99.  This suits me as every time I go to a Vintage shop in Spitalfields market they're always way over-priced AND out of my size...unless it's the most hideous design ever.

I love the look of the dark wash Levis denim shorts with frayed bottom edges.  I think they have the most classic styling and are best for Summer with bright loose t-shirts. Because of the high legged shorts feature (they're jeans cut into shorts) I think its best to match with a more covered up top as otherwise it might be just a bit too much on show, and hey, it's never going to really get much hotter than 18 degrees over here.

For a slightly more dressy feel, I would match these high waisted Ark Levi's Vintage shorts in black with a white top and a big pair of Chanel Sunnies.  (My own are full of salt since taking a swim in them last summer *cry*).

So there you have it, the must haves on my Spring/ Summer shopping list!  I love that because they're classics they'll never go out of style.  And because they're from the brand Ark, you can choose the pair in the colour and size perfect for you, and not left to chance in the more expensive vintage stores.  Check out their full collection (here).

Do you guys own a pair of Levi's Vintage shorts?? Let me know what you match them with!

Lots of Love
