Shorts: DIY from old school uniform trousers
Shoes: Joanne Mercer, thrifted
Today's outfit (very very) loosely reminds me of a tuxedo modified for summertime wear, with the stripe of lace and row of bows down the center of the top (which I would very much like to describe as "crisp" and "white," but in reality it's pink and rather shapeless...) and the high-waisted black shorts (butchered from a pair of ill-fitting uniform trousers that I was never going to wear).
And you'll never guess where I went wearing this outfit! Uni! (Sarcastic overjoyment doesn't translate well in text...) It was a summer school class, and the only thing I learned was that I will never be able to concentrate (much less converse in French) in 35/95 degree heat. One more month until fall!
