shorts!





top: truly madly deeply, shorts: cut up true blue jeans, shoes: express, tights: target, sunglasses: sportsgirl.

I didn't wear shorts for about ten years, maybe longer. I had them on that list in my head of 'clothes fat girls can't wear' (along with baggy tshirts with horizontal stripes for that matter) but last summer, after seeing girl after girl wearing denim cut offs and looking amazing, I decided fuck it. Fuck the whole idea of any clothes fat girls can't wear and I went and bought some jeans, cut them into shorts and wore them all summer. Now that it's getting a bit sunnier here in cold, wet Melbourne I'm pulling the shorts back out.

Loving your attitude! This outfit is perfect for those not-quite-summer-yet sunny days. I'm also quite giddy at the thought of warmer weather.

Great outfit.
Back in the day, 1997 - 2001 - I would have bought your tee simply because I was OBSESSED with Savage Garden and so I would have wanted to wear Truly Madly Deeply.
I'll be your dream
I'll be your wish
I'll be your stripey tee..

Simple, cute outfit. I love the stripes, the shorts (and how it hugs your curves) and those glasses! My face is too fat to get those type of glasses.

i am really loving this look. the shorts, the baggy top and the horizontal stripes. (plus your hair colour with it all, you should keep it that colour).

love from your favourite breakfast date person simo.
