Summer Vibes

Wearing: Bec & Bridge 'Farrah' lace top, Victoria's Secret PINK lace bralette, Mink Pink shorts, Billini 'Lorna' sandals

To me, summer means being a lot more experimental and bold with colours, prints and fabric combinations when putting together outfits. The warmer weather means the wardrobe brightens up, and in general we're a lot more open to a brighter and more fun colour palette. 

These shorts by Mink Pink are the essence of summer. They're an amazing shape, have an incredible print (floral AND animal - could there actually be anything better?!) and have a super cute slightly scalloped hem. The elastic waist means they're also super comfortable, perfect for relaxing at the beach, at home, on holidays or at a festival...literally anywhere you could end up this summer! This Mink Pink collection is all about awesome party vibes, and these shorts capture and express everything that entails. 

As has been a recurring trend in my recent posts, I've again opted for a cropped top in this outfit. The warmer summer temps and inevitable beach trips means lace pieces like this have been popping up everywhere, and are the perfect throw-on piece for covering a bikini or triangle bra. I'm not one to shy away from a vibrant detail so have worn a hot pink Victoria's Secret PINK bralette underneath, but this look would also work with a neutral coloured piece or even another relative print.

Lastly but definitely not least are these incredible clog sandals from Billini. Long-time blog followers may remember the post I did on the Billini 'Hola Mexico' summer collection photoshoot, and this is just one of the incredible pairs of shoes that feature in the collection. The upper is genuine leather and for only $79.95 they're a total steal!
