There’s something about summer that has us looking backwards. From jelly sandals to bum bags – we’ve seen it all – the warmer months allow us to have fun with our clothes and accessories, often resulting in nostalgic trends coming to the fore. While I’m not one for buying into every trend that retailers try to throw at us, I do like to have fun with my clothes, so when I saw this daisy-patterned shirt-vest with a knot-front I just had to have it!
Chanelling my inner Thelma – from Thelma & Louise, duh! – I stepped out in the sunshine wearing my knotted-top to run some errands. Despite the sun, the perforated and sleeveless shirt, helped me beat the heat!
To avoid falling into the costume trap – all too easily done – I made sure to update this retro-inspired piece with a leather panelled skirt – love! – and hexagonal-shaped sunglasses. To finish, I accessorised with elegant details in matching grey-blue tones and added a bright pop of colour to my lips.
What do you think of my throwback-summer-ready look?
Catch me later!
