Contrast

White trim blazer from Le Chateau / Black trim top from H&M / High waisted shorts from Forever 21 / Beige booties from Justfor5pounds / Wooden sunglasses from Woodzee

Contrast is a great way to keep things interesting. Pumping up the contrast in photos emphasizes certain aspects, contrast in opinions can really spice up discussions, and contrast in clothing draws the eye towards details. In this outfit, I'm contrasting light neutrals with a deep rust colour and piling on the contrast trim clothing.

I've worn shorts twice this season. The first time, it was actually colder than the forecast suggested so I looked like a frozen idiot. So when putting on shorts this time, I made sure to pair it with layers just in case the weather took a turn. And it's a good thing I did because it was sunny and raining at the same time. I think I could get used to the idea of the preppy sailor look.
