sunsets & silhouettes.

Vintage USC cropped tee, Suboo shorts, Molten Store cuff, Ruby & Kit backpack.

I'm not usually one for prints but when I saw these Suboo shorts, the secretly risky/ daring part of me decided I had to have them. Perhaps it had something to do with a little tropical getaway I've been planning with the bestie to Bali next February (deposit paid and our itinerary is locked in boom!) that put me in the mood to purchase holiday appropriate attire. Never say never.

The print further triggered an exploration of colour - neon orange, yellow and green (I must have been in a really good mood that morning). I went through around five plain singlets or so and but finally settled on this cropped college tee because of the way the team colours matched that of the shorts. Colour overload was taken one step further with my neon (superhero) cuff. It all seemed a little ridiculous to me and I found myself repeatedly asked mum for reassurance (who coordinates orange with green?) but in hindsight I think this is one of the better styling decisions I have made. Or at least a little more gutsy. The start of a new me?

I've dedicated this summer to trying new things, being more spontaneous, working more, blogging more, trying to make things happen and just living life the best way possible. I'm usually homebody (they don't call me grandmel for nothing) but I'm making small improvements - a girls' getaway, seeing M.I.A live in January, participating in the Colour Run, attending music festivals. You could say my philosophy is yolo but I'd rather not call it that.

  3. I like the shorts! I'm the same as you - trying not to be a grandma this summer. I'm going to stereo which is totally not my usual scene, and yeah trying to wear more colour and getting to the gym and going out etc. :)
