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?

so boyfriend shorts. a new concept for me. it took me long enough to find a pair of boyfriend jeans that didn’t make me look like an actual male, but once i found one pair it all seemed to get easier from there. however shorts i feel are a little less mainstream when it comes to the ‘boyfriend’ category. they’re the kind of thing that i always saw on models (or people who looked like models) and thought i could never wear. so i was thrilled when i tried on a pair and through that i actually looked semi-cool. the shorts actually look cool just with converses (classic) or ankle boots, but i tried to experiment a little with my footwear.

now, we need to discuss these shoes. i am not entirely sure if they’re cool, or make me look like i have animal feet? i feel slightly like i have hooves for feet. but then when i turn on the side i like their profile. this is one of my better shoe-outfit combos though. ah, we try and at times we fail, and other times we have no idea if we’ve passed or failed. but we must at least try!
