Holiday Shorts

Simple and cute – holiday shorts with stripes, oh, and a cowboy hat which is the best sun protection because it looks good and protects your face and neck. But they squash in luggage – I haven’t solved that one yet.

Pink shorts – Mango (similar). Striped T – Esprit. Denim shorts – Mango. Striped T – Trenery. Flats – Aldo. Cowboy hat – Roxy (similar), Earrings – fluffy green Christmas glitter slugs – from my mum. Gin and tonic – models own ūüėČ

Tropical Work

Once I got my head around the shorts-and-heels trend, it felt like a whole new world of options opened up. We all have shorts, and we all have heels, so this combo allows us to further extend our wardrobes without much additional investment. And, although I live in Thailand where it rarely gets cooler than 30 degrees, my office is freezing thanks to an automated air-conditioning system set to arctic ice. Hence the jacket.

Rock the Mini!!!

I have decided to break up my chain of dress posts with a mini-and-top combo! This awesome black mini is such a great fit because it is thick material and therefore doesn’t show any lumps and bumps.

I also tried a more ‘fashion blogger’ pose (inspiration from LookBook and Chictopia) ¬†and both my husband and I (once we stopped laughing) think that my arms look like they are on backwards and my head is not fixed securely! I don’t think it is best I try to be ‘quirky’ Think I should stick to what feels comfy. Can you spot which photo it was? haha

Who Needs Ruby Red Slippers to take them home!?

I admit to being mildly,¬†OK, massively, obsessed and in love with the colour pink. I simply think it is THE most gorgeous shade in the entire universe. We should all wear rose-tinted sunglasses…..anyway. I discovered two heavenly bright shocking deliciously pink items over the past month and had to share them with you.

Luminous Pink Heels – Aldo $80. Padded pink IPad case – Marc Jacobs $58. Sepia and white T – ESPRIT $9 (on sale)

Black Trousers – tailored in Thailand because I am too tall for average pantaloons! The Cotton House, Bangkok, Thailand.

 


Barefoot on The Grass

Ok, so I’m not barefoot on the grass, but that is what it says on my top! And I love that saying because nothing is nicer than walking on thick, freshly cut, cool green grass.

Makes me think of summer picnics in the wine lands of South Africa. Sitting under a huge tree, speckled in sunshine while drinking wine and eating cheese. I need to book a holiday!

Peach T – Esprit $9 (on sale, I got lucky), cowboy hat – old, similar Theodora + Callum straw hat $66 (sale)
