Yo shawty...


"I love shorts in the colder climates, because you can wear them with chunky sweaters and jackets. It's cute and funky."
Rachel Bilson 

I bought these shorts a little while ago from Glassons. I found them in the loaded sale rack and since they were one of my
 favourite colours I decided to give them a try. Once I had them on I knew they were destined to enter my wardrobe. They were
 something a bit different to the typcial denim shorts that many New Zealand girls wear like a uniform. And the fabric is a really 
nice thick almost brocade looking fabric which I love.

When I told Ellen that I was going to wear them with my leather jacket she was unconvinced that it would work, but after I put it 
all together I seemed to change her mind.

hunger games necklace - Amazon
bag, shorts - glassons
watch - May28th.me
jacket - just jeans
shoes - garage

The bag was a complete impulse buy. One of those moments you look across the store and see something that you know
 straight away you are going to buy. There was no doubt or thought behind the decision; and I've been carrying it pretty much 
everywhere since.

Exams are rapidly approaching and I am starting my descent back into the studying lifestyle. Its going to be a bit tough after
 being busy working on personal projects while keeping up with the light course-load.
Oh well, no-one eve said University was going to be easy.
(probably should have learnt this over the three years ive already been there)
