simple stripes and shorts

Asos sweater and ring, vintage shorts (via mum), Scooter black flats (not shown)
A simple combination of stripes and shorts will always get me through the day. I haven’t got much else to say here (regressing into lazy blogger mode), other than that I hope everyone in Queensland is keeping safe tonight and that you don’t get hit too hard by all these devastating floods.

    I have such a stripes fetish, this jumper looks great with the shorts.

    Simple but effective 😉

    Stripes are my first love. I found some fabric today to sew some more pants, gorgeous light thin stripes. But the fabric was way too thin and see through. So not good for everyday wear.. I'm still considering making them by doubling the fabric over. Love your nail polish too, a little pop of purple – perfect.

    @Mez: I'd love to see what you end up making!

    @pipalachic: thanks for the concern! Luckily I won't be affected by the floods, but the whole city of Brisbane has gone into flood panic mode. It's quite eerie.

    I have been looking for a sweater exactly like that for so long. However I'm too much of a cheapskate to get it from Asos (it costs so much to ship it out here).

    My heart truly does go out to those affected by these floods. They have looked horrific, I can't imagine what it must be like.

    On a less catastrophic note, this jumper is lush. I love your style I really do miss, it's so simple yet experimental and classic. A winner in my eyes, always jazzy ♥
