My turquoise summer

image

I close my eyes, breathe in, breathe out, and smile. As soon as I picture the perfect beach, I begin to imagine the sound of the waves rolling into the scattered sand. My dream house is near the seaside for a reason, you see. Beaches have always had some sort of calming power over me, and I don’t suppose that I’m the only one to experience this.Turquoise is the very colour of your perfect sea, and that is one of the many reasons of why I love turquoise so much.It is a colour preferred by many people who I know, and is usually described as a fresh, yet calming colour.

This beautiful colour well with purples, browns, and pinks in particular, however as shown in the pictures I have provided, it can go with almost any colour combination at all! Not to mention that it is an especially spring/summer-y colour that looks absolutely gorgeous in skirts, dresses, and pretty tops!

Eat my shorts

Sorry to disappoint, but sadly this is not going to be a post related to fashion in the 80’s, breakfast club style. Perhaps another time, if the idea sparks up enough interest. However, I want to focus in on one key item in todays fashion world; shorts. Are they a no-go, a recyclable trend for summers only, or are they acceptable in the fashion industry to be worn all year around? No matter the majority vote on opinion of shorts, there are always going to be some people who brave the winter air while parading their bare legs, as there is with any trend there are the followers, and those who stray. My opinion, if valued, is that it is no crime to wear shorts, in the right conditions. Those being that it is relatively warm, and you are either at home, at the beach, or somewhere casual. Shorts can be worn with jumpers, tops, and knitted sweaters, so it is understandable why some people may feel flexible and/or comfortable with them. But they are not a fashion statement. If you wish to appear casual, and quite frankly as if you don’t give a damn about your appearance and reputation fashionwise, go ahead and pull on those shorts. Nevertheless, should you wish to be noticed as a fashion conscious woman/girl then I suggest you leave shorts for around the house. Skirts and dresses are much better alternatives,  especially this season with the cute&classy look really making an impact.
