summertime casualness

Outfits,  Summer

i often feel with summer, there is this certain unspoken law of casualness that we all seem to apply to in our dressing. it could be an australian thing, or a perth thing. or maybe it’s all in my mind. regardless, i find myself always opting for the casual options. shorts, t-shirts, little cotton dresses and sandals. it’s like we think it’s too hot to be getting dressed up. that being said, i’m not complaining. one of my ultimate favourite outfits is a good oversized tee and a pair of shorts. exhibit a:

t-shirt: MLM Label
shorts: Scanlan and Theodore
belt: Clover
shoes: ASOS
nails: Mecca Cosmetica ‘Phrynia’
glasses: Zero UV

 

when you find a good cut in a tee or a pair of shorts, you just get so much use out of them! i think it’s the cut of things that really makes the difference in being well dressed and not. in an attempt to be slightly less casual, opting for a more structured pair of shorts, or basically anything that’s not denim is the way to go. these scanlan shorts are pretty darn awesome though, and they’re purple…

i just want to talk about hair for a moment. there is a hugely overwhelming sense of, i-want-to-cut-my-hair coming over me! but my lovely boyfy likes my hair long. so do i. but i think i’m using his love for my long hair as an excuse for keeping it growing! so I’m thinking i go for a significant cut, but still keeping it short? then i think about how it’s summertime, and my hair looks so much better when i’ve been swimming if it’s long! the length of it weighs down the poodleness of it slightly. also seeing rosie hungtington-whitely’s new do has altered my perspective once again, although, she is a blonde supermodel, which i am not, so i probably shouldn’t be making too many decisions based off her actions… thoughts?

finally i get to show off my boots!!

i’m sure we could all recognise this trademark heel a mile off. but they’re just too cool. i’m so glad the weather has started to cool off so i can wear them. but, they have already worn down so much! it serves me right though. i don’t know what deluded thought proccess of mine warranted them appropriate snow boots while in new york. i think it was my fear of looking touristy (that and the fact i didn’t bring any other low boots!) that compelled me to wear them nearly every day. i can safely say they will be kept well out of the snow now that we are back home. this fur vest was another find while shopping in the lower east side. it was one of my many purchases that was on sale (unlike my boots!). the fur is so soft. like so soft. i wish every garment was this snuggly! infact, the store actually sported it’s very own pet rabbit (that we thought was just decoration). i’m pretty excited that the weather is getting colder. it’s much easier to wear all of your favourite items at once! and there are so many memories of new york in this outfit! i can’t believe how much i have thought about travelling since i have been home. i think it’s time for the next trip. why not, i mean we only have one world – may as well see what we can in the time that we have!

here’s to hoping i will be enjoying the monte carlo sun soon!
