metallic paws: shine in tangerine

Sunday, July 1, 2012

shine in tangerine


Not going to spam your computer screens with photos today as I usually do, so fear not capped ones! We wanted to capture a lovely golden pink sunset, to provide the perfect backdrop for my tangerine orange blouse and bronze sequinned shorts. The sun started descending a lot faster than we anticipated so we didn't come away with that many pictures. We're still happy though- quality trumps quantity :)

I'm glad I was able to wear out my new Chicwish blouse for a short while, before the freezing cold chases it away into the depths of my summer wardrobe. I love the slouchy, baggy fit with the batwing sleeves and large pockets, and the way it opens up so you can choose whatever singlet to peek out at the top. There's something about the vibrant tangerine shade and the bronze sparkles in the shorts that strongly reminds me of one of those humid, late summer nights. Obviously, I have practically zero understanding of the concept of winter.

Has anyone had that awkward moment when you realise your outfit looks better without stockings, and you take them off and after leaving them far, far behind you are struck with the sudden fear of exposing hairy legs on account of not having had to shave them for an extremely long time due to cold weather??

Despite the lengthy and detailed description it seems to have happened to me a few times before. I had stockings underneath the shorts for the whole day and right before photo-taking my boyfriend strongly recommended they be removed for the photos at least. I completely forgot that my legs were meant to be in winter hibernation, which was not to be disrupted without undergoing a rigorous shaving session and a healthy dose of sun tan. Fortunately and strangely enough, my legs were less pasty than expected and a wild forest could not be seen. Ironically, this is probably because I don't shave very often. Sighing with relief!

  7. In love with your metallic shorts, but I love how flowy the tangering top is, it's perfect! Even if you didn't catch the sunset, I think the gradient in the sky was perfect enough actually! Like a lovely muted backdrop :) I have no understanding of winter either, I'm just not one to wear trousers or pants, shorts and leggings woo! YES, that has happened to me, but I've been lucky enough to not have anyone notice my legs in such situation. The absense of stockings works well with this outfit, your boyfriend is a wise fellow :)

  14. ahahha at the stockings and hair thing! Happens to me a lot but I always end up wearing stockings.
    You can't even tell that you're legs weren't shaved so that's a good thing :)

    1. thanks! my boyfriend (also photographer) edits the photos with Adobe Photoshop Lightroom. in the "Develop" tab there's a bunch of different settings there on the right such as exposure and vibrance and he plays around with them.

  19. love this outfit =) many people don't wear bright colors as much because it's difficult to pull off a bright look with glitters but you always manage to look effortless girl!

    lmao about the hairy leg situation....i think i've done that once before. *runs home* lol

    The tangerine is such a pretty colour! I need to think about getting some orange into my closet :)

  21. LMAO, I can totally relate with Winter legs... It's so annoying! And I know the 'star' of this outfit is supposed to be the shirt but I LOVE those shorts. I have a thing for sequins. :x

  24. I love this whole look. The color of your blouse and fit is perfect with the fitted sequin shorts. Threadscence has a similar pair online that is now on sale that I have been thinking about buying. Even though I don't know how often I'd really wear them. AND yes I can def. relate to the winter legs situation. I don't what girl can't!

I love how the sunset matches the orange of your outfit. :D Oh and I've been caught out multiple times on that "It's fine I'm wearing stockings" feeling and then you have to take them off for some reason or another and then bam, everyone knows you have wookie legs in the winter. xD

  56. Hahaha I couldn't help but think "first world problems" when I was reading the hairy leg/shorts/winter thing! But fret not, I'm quite sure all girls (myself included) get caught in that dilemma quite often during the winter months. You look great in sequin shorts btw! I saw a pair at Bardot the other day...but thought to myself I probably wouldn't be able to pull them off. They look awesome on you though, so I might give it a try :)
    p.s. thank you for your lovely comments on my blog. You have no idea how much I appreciate them. Much love xx

    ReplyDelete
  57. i always forget when i last shaved/epilated my legs. that really speaks to how much time i give it until i DO get rid of the hair. luckily i don't think i'm hairy enough for people to really notice it! epilating helps me stay hair-free a lot longer than shaving!

    the sunset is pretty! :)

    ReplyDelete
  58. LOL! You are cracking me up! The only time I can see "hairy forest" legs are when the sun catches the legs at a certain angle and you can see all the fuzz. But that's not the case here, so don't fret!! But I swear, that's the one thing winter is great for. Less time spent shaving! Loving these bronze sequin shorts! They are so pretty and I think gold/bronze sequins are my favorite. They look fantastic with the orange top as well! <3

  68. I love how you make the sequined shorts look so wearable here! I always have a fear of wearing sequined stuffs and looking over the top. Fabulous styling babe! Hoho, I totally understand what you mean about hairy legs especially after a long winter. Honestly, I really love leggings because I can put off shaving my legs for the longest time!

    I'm pretty pumped to see your winter fashion, it's something I find difficult. Mainly because people will just see jackets and shoes... I tend to just buy a kick-ass jacket and switch up the shoes.

    ReplyDelete
  92. Wow the background really complements your outfit. I guess thats why your photos are always so amazing. You and your bf seem so smart to think about that sort of thing. These colours suit you so well. Love your outfit as always. I totally agree with you on the whole shaving legs issue. I find myself in that situation all the time. Like when my tights have a hole in them and I am forced to take them off. It's so bad!!!
