Today has been bakingly hot, the sun reflecting of the concrete pavements with such fierce intensity that it somehow doubled the heat. Thus, what I really wanted to be wearing was a bikini, in a cool pool, in the shade somewhere.
As it was I wore a big, white man-style dress shirt, thats been revamped to girlie it up a bit with mother-of-pearl buttons and some strategic pin tucking. I paired it with some knee length black leggings to keep it decent and my boyfriends giant, chunky black studded watch. Very rock 'n' roll!
Anyways, if I was working a look in the city on a day like today, I'd want something smart, but that helps me keep my cool. I browsed Max and styled this outfit up.
I would wear the top tucked into the shorts, the cuff high on my forearm. The model's hairstyle is perfect, scraped up high off the neck to keep from getting too hot. Add sunscreen = perfect workwear! As it is a Sunday though, I reckon this outfit would work well for a snazzy BBQ too - the colour of the top is showstopping!
As I like to think in terms of amount of wear I could get out of it, this outfit with some chunky opaque tights and streamlined leather boots with a good heel (not a stiletto, that would be too much!). I reckon maybe a cosy waterfall fronted knit for lazy days or a fitted black leather waistcoat for going out and maybe more gold jewellery instead of bronze...
