a dash of summer



White floral bustier: Love Culture
High waisted denim shorts: Love Culture
Ombre denim shirt: Valleygirl
Neon yellow bag: Missguided
It's still winter in Australia, yet somehow we've been enjoying balmy sunny days reminiscent of what we experience in the middle of February! Nothing could be more exciting than stepping out in the sunshine and being pleasantly surprised by the warm rays that greet us.

I wore my new cream bustier from Love Culture which I didn't think I'd get too many wears out of during this season, and I minimised how much skin I flashed with a baggy denim shirt worn open. I've never really been much of a denim fanatic, and I'm glad to say I'm loving my very first foray into the denim on denim ensemble!

I didn't really want to go entirely monochrome with my denim on denim attempt, so I paired together two denim pieces that have some interesting varying shades of blue. My new shirt from Valleygirl has a gorgeous dip-dye effect and these shorts from Love Culture have a funky splodge design.

Silver is a really fresh metal that I thought suited this light-wash denim and white outfit more than gold. I added a bit of silver with the hardware on the bag, rings, and the spikes on these black platforms.

Unfortunately the 'summer' was short-lived and it's back to cold, wintry days now. Hope everyone else is experiencing great weather! :)

  7. I've been really enjoying these few sunny days that have come up! I like your look. I just posted a look wearing my Litas (just realised it's also a monochrome look with a splash of yellow!) too but it's not as summery as yours.
