Lady K Loves Hello Sailor Shorts

My lovely sponsor, Lady K Loves, sent me a pair of the Hello Sailor shorts to review and, luckily, we had a few rather warm days that gave me the perfect opportunity to both wear the shorts to run some errands and take photos for the review at the same time. I chose the stretch denim with red buttons as I don't tend to wear a lot of black anymore (they also come in red with white buttons but check the site to see what's in stock) and felt they would be easily integrated into my wardrobe. I think I was right!


Outfit details: top - Valley Girl; bangles - various op-shops; shorts - Lady K Loves; shoes - KMart.

This was also the first time that I've ever worn this top - I bought it ages ago as I thought it had a very 30s/40s feel to it (I feel like it has a bit of a chorus girl vibe to it) and it looks perfect with these shorts.


I asked for a size medium which is actually slightly smaller than my own measurements but because it's a stretch denim they're not uncomfortable (and will probably stretch a little the more I wear them) - plus, I like this style of shorts to be tight. 


They look great as they are but I later paired them with a belt and that looked really great, too. I like the contrast stitching at the waist and button holes. I did find the top rolled down a little from time to time but that could be because I'm a sloucher - that's really the only 'issue' I had with wearing them and it's not a big deal at all.


I think these would be quite versatile, too - like this they have that slight '30s chorus girl vibe I mentioned earlier (though tighter, of course, than the typical chorus girl shorts of the 30s) but would still work well with any number of different tops, blouses, etc.



The sizes run from an XS to an XL - you can read the Lady K Loves size chart for more information and accurate sizing. Oh, I will add that in terms of sizing, they run true to the size chart.

  1. I dont bare my legs anymore but they look FAB on you. A playsuit is a dream outfit for me now!

  2. Cute outfit! The contrast red stitching and buttons are a lovely touch.

  3. I LOVE that top! It is simple adorable!

    I love reading reviews of retro clothing. I'm always so apprehensive to drop lots of money on an items I can't feel or try on, so these reviews really help me out.


  4. So adorable outfit! The top is "I-must-get-it" :D

  5. Oh my, they are too cute! You suit them so darn well! I can imagine them going with so many cute summery shirts! :) Zoë x

  6. It is really adorable!! The top and the short are great together, the short is a must have... But I need to lost a few weight....

  7. Ohh super cute! You look fantastic in shorts.


  8. Laaaaady, you look fantastic! I am soooo short-shy, but you make shorts look pretty darn cool. That top is so pretty too.

  9. Lovely! I don't do short shorts (and never have even when I was a teen!) but these almost have me tempted. We shall have to see when the weather here hots up...

  10. Lookin' good! Those shorts are adorable.

  11. This is one of my favorite outfits of yours. I say that with each post; very indecisive I am.

    Anyhow. I hope you've been well! I feel like I haven't talked to you in ages. I've been slacking at all forms of social media. ;p

  12. ooh they are great. I have been looking for a chorus girl style pair of shorts. Definitely going to check out their website. You are looking smokin hot in them. ;) xx

  13. You look as cute as a summery button! :) I think those shorts look terrific on you and are really becoming. I'd have never thought the sizing with a little off, if you hadn't mentioned anything, because I think they fit you to a tee. I adore that top, too! I'd have swooped in on it in a heartbeat, too (loving polka dots and bows as I do).

  15. Oh man, I really dig these! Too bad it's only 8 degrees in London right now...
