And something I feel like I haven't done in ages... Outfit post!

My last proper outfit post was 2 weeks ago. -_-

I think shorts are the most comfortable things to wear in our weather! I love dresses too (easy to pull on, fuss-free...) but as I am kind of a tomboy, shorts/pants are the best bet for me so that I won't get caught for indecent exposure.

Hence, ripped/unfinished denim shorts are sort of my wardrobe staple, and I've got tons of them: by far my favorite pair from Korea which I wear almost all the time (*click*), Zara ones in a darker wash (*click*), a recent pair that I thrifted (*click*), old high waisted ones from Miss Selfridge (*click*), loose Cotton On ones which comes as a close 2nd favorite (*click*), fancier ones with chain link details (*click*)... And these are just some off the top of my head.

I love denim shorts to bits, but I want to expand more shorts collections so that I can create more versatile looks! And specifically I had formal shorts in mind-- tailored shorts, soft skorts (shorts that look like skirts) etc. Which is why I love this pair of pleated chiffon shorts to death! It's super soft and comfy, and I love the neutral shade, 'cause just like my denim shorts, I can match them with anything I want. And similarly, it can be dressed up and down with a snap of my fingers! I've seen a couple of versions of this shorts: Jaspal, Baci, Bangkok, Topshop... I think Topshop comes closest to our Azorias version in terms of quality. I was aghast to find that most versions of this shorts use like ugly black elastic trimmings instead of black grosgrain ribbon trimmings. :/

Matched it with a retro-ish top; was in a girlie mood.

Retro shift top with crotchet lace bib/pocket: General Pants, Australia
Nude chiffon pleated chiffon shorts with grosgrain ribbon trimmings: AZORIAS
Pearl/ embellished bracelets: Diva
Cream leather cuff: Topshop
Electrib blue velvet pumps: Holiday in Zhuhai
Bag: Chanel
