Pink has never really been my colour. I was a bit of a tomboy when I was little and as I got older, shied away from girly things like floral prints and bright colours. Only recently have I attempted to inject some colour into my monochromatic wardrobe so I thought these GPV shorts would be a good place to start. I really love the versatility of a white knit - the colour makes it appropriate for summer, but being a knit, naturally it's cosy. Call me mad for embracing the knit when we should be savouring our last days of sunshine and no rain but I don't think you understand how deep my love runs for knits.

I've only been back at uni for a week and already I'm starting to struggle. Maintaining this blog has been quite a challenge, especially when it comes to outfit posts. When you and your boyfriend photographer are juggling uni, interning and work 7 days a week, the only time you have to shoot is that 30 minute window after work on a weekend before the sun sets. As a result I've had to recreate outfits I've been wearing that past week. I know that from here on in, things are only going to get busier in my life but I'm making it my mission to update at least 2 - 3 times a week. 


  1. Aw I love this outfit! So simple and stylishhh x

  2. ooh I love those Gary pepper vintage shorts! you should definitely incorporate more pink in your outfit, it suits you well! :) and yeah I know what you mean about having to recreate outfits.
