Spring Awakening

Peak cap from Guangzhou clothing market, Woolworths Tee, Studio W trousers, vintage belt, Country Road bag, Forever 21 heels.

With Spring in our midst, Woolies very appropriately sent me this cotton ombre tee and asked me how I’d wear it. I love loose fitting tees, cropped or not, they’re so breezy and light, always making an outfit look so effortless. Naturally, I was only too happy to welcome it to my growing collection (thanks Woolworths). I paired it with my mom’s Studio W trousers, they’re about three sizes too big for me, but I love the baggy-top-on-baggy-bottoms look paired with some heels (and never mind boyfriend jeans, boyfriend chino’s anyone?) I’ve thrown my loose tee’s on over fitted maxi dresses and shorts for contrasting proportions, donned them with jeans and even layered underneath them for a winter interpretation.

Furthermore, these images were shot by my favourite photo guy, Marnus Meyer. We shot together over a year ago and got along so well. It was just before I moved to Doha and we planned to shoot for my blog but of course I moved away. Now that I’m back we’re able to resume that idea, and I reminded him to remember me when he’s the next Nick Knight! To really see why Marnus is the bomb-dot-com though, check out his Tumblr here.
