when life gives you lemons

18th June 2013

… why not turn them into an outfit!
  

one chilly morning at the end of February,
i woke to the smell of lemons and thought “i want a lemon
dress”! weird, i know, but i was determined. anyways, i searched online, local stores and even at vintage boutiques without success. by april i was about to give up when i stumbled upon lemon printed shorts at c.wonder.com (worn here). the next day, waffie && i wondered down to soho in search for the shorts, where i found this zesty little dress out of the same print!
i swiped my card with a smile and never looked back.
dress: c.wonder // top: kate spade (old, try this one!) // bag: vintage moschino // shoes: sam edelman // necklace: thanks to tomorrows unknown // rings: kate spade // wire wrap // vintage // arm party: j.crew // kate spade //  vintage // kate spade idiom bangles // forever 21

zest

13th May 2013

sometimes, zest is more! so i’m beyond excited to show off my new lemon shorts (yes, lemon printed shorts) in today’s bright && summery post.
 a little bit of yellow can go a long way, but today i opted to double up on this bright hue with two different patterned yellow pieces. i’m especially loving the mix of the two flowers && lemon prints, it simply screams spring!



who wears short shorts? if you do, try pairing it with a solid oxford shirt, the exposed legs in contrast with the conservative sleeves make the outfit more interesting! try tying your top to expose just a little bit of skin to make the look flirty without exposing too much.
