Let it Glo

I’ll be the first to¬†admit I’ve fallen head over heels for dayglo. Dayglo peach, in particular. There’s something about the color that¬†seems so fresh, yet not risky. I love how it always makes me look tan, even if I’m feeling pale and overworked. It brightens up anything, but pairs beautifully with black, a habit I can’t see myself stopping any time soon.

A pair of shorts and a t shirt. How boring, how bland. Nothing new to write home about there — unless of course you change up the colors and textures. I’m a pretty simple person when it comes to dressing, and I don’t really like buttons or zippers or fussiness. Simple. Streamlined. Have fun with the colors and the fabrics.

I went on a bit of a spending spree at Asos, filling up my basket with geometric prints and plenty of this fluorescent color. I just couldn’t help myself. The rolled sleeves and the white ringer collar are a nice counterpoint to the more formal feel of the shorts, which are a great textural weave.

While Converse are usually in simple canvas, swapping it out for a pair in leather gives the look a bit more polish, an unexpected refinement.
