Zara shirt | Kahlo skirt | Acne boots
Photos by April
I been feeling a little under the pump lately what with everything going on, so when April told me there was a Lego forest installed in Martin Place we just knew we had to shoot there. I've been struggling with my posing and facial expressions (trying to master that model pout/ stare) but in all honestly, I think the reason these photos came out so well was because I was having fun - I hope it shows :)
I am once again sporting my Kahlo skirt just to show you how much I love it (to the people who commented on my last outfit post, here's another take on the leather skirt) and also to show you I'm just a regular girl. As much as I'd like to dream, I don't have the luxury of wearing something new everyday. I think it's a little unrealistic seeing bloggers who never wear the same thing twice (and manage to constantly afford some big name labels) - in a way it loses their ability to relate and appeal to the average person. So here I am to admit to you that you'll see me wearing things more than once (or even twice) on this blog because I keep it real, yo.
I know this mint Zara shirt has made the blogger rounds but I thought I'd share with you my interpretation. It's a soft, delicate and extremely feminine blouse that I want to 'rough up' with a leather skirt and boots. More than often I walk out of the house in something fashionably acceptable yet am still quite critical (and often not 100% happy) with what I wear, however with this contrasting combination, I'm surprisingly pleased with the results. And If tradies and truck drivers can give me the odd honk and stare while I'm waiting at my bus stop, then surely it must be good... right? Some men are pigs.
