formulaic



blouse - topshop, cardigan - tesco, shorts - f21, hat - h&m

i'm not sure about this outfit. i ordered these shorts from forever21 after seeing them online, they looked great on the model - but sadly they look not-so-great on me. the material is very thin and creases easily, and i don't think they're very flattering. it's a shame as the colour is lovely. forever21 seems to be very hit and miss.

what i'm wearing also seems kinda formulaic, shorts+blouse+cardigan. there's nothing wrong with that of course, but i've been trying to push myself out of my shorts+blouse+cardigan comfort zone lately. more dresses and skirts is what i'm aiming for these days. not that i'd ever stop wearing shorts, or cardigans, they're 2 of my favourite clothing items!

  2. Quite like them though, too bad the fabric creases so easily, cause otherwise they would be absolutely lovely!

  4. Yeah, it's too bad about the fabric on those shorts... Forever 21 is really hit or miss. I only get stuff in store for that reason.
    I love the polka dotted blouse! And the cuffs you did. :)

  9. I love the shorts and cardigan combo. But what I most like about your outfit, is the blouse turned up with the cardigan, I think it adds a nice touch x x

  13. The shorts are perfect. Polka dots are my new love, even though I own very few polka dot pieces.

  14. You look lovely and comfortable. It's so important to feel comfortable in your clothes! And those things will never go out of style. I can never have enough cardigans. :D
