MY favourite part about the hotter months - apart from ice cream for breakfast - is the amount of layers I don't have to wear for once. I love layering jackets, but what often goes unnoticed in these posts is the excessive wearing of thermals and leggings under everything I wear. This year, I broke my own personal record with one pair of leggings, two pairs of jeans, one thermal top, three vests, a jumper and two jackets - all in one outfit. In comparison to that, wearing just a (slight) crop top with sweatpants and flats..feels like I'm walking around naked. Breezy.
A FEW months ago I joined an army of fashion bloggers and took a one way trip to the dark side - I bought a skort. Sure, it was hardly the crime of the season (albeit the trend), but I can't help feel like I'm snowballing into some sort of asymmetrical obsession, what with accumulating a grand total of four now. It's official, I'm checking myself into skirt-short rehab. My new drug of choice? The birth child of the skirt and trouser - the skouser, perhaps? Doesn't quite have the same ring to it, but they're just as addictive. One down, four hundred and twelve pairs to go.
