Wearing shorts in London is something I never do. Come to think of it, I don’t think I’ve ever worn shorts in this city. Yes, even in the summer. If you know anything about London, you’ll know that it’s a city that blows hot and cold (quite literally). Our weather fluctuates like nothing you’ve ever seen before and almost everyone carries an umbrella ‘just in case’ of rain. So you can imagine that when I was putting this outfit together it felt a little strange to me. I actually felt like a tourist in my own city, because wearing shorts feels too reminiscent of a holiday, which it is far from.
As seen in my Miami vlog, I wore shorts with confidence, because I was in that environment, but when I’m in my own city, it just feels weird. This beautiful Forever 21 top goes so well with shorts though, so I decided to style them together regardless of what I think/feel about me wearing shorts in London. I am such a big fan of clothes with dramatic elements to them, so this crop top was right up my street. The sheer finish, the sleeves and the tiny polka dots just came together beautifully and I shot with my friend Andrea this time! She is so talented and I can’t wait to do some more cool shots with her. Check out her blog here. Wishing you all an awesome weekend!
