WHO WEARS SHORT SHORTS?

Inspiration-- La Chamade, my new favorite French movie made in the late 60s starring Catherine Deneuve. Rent it if you can.

I've been watching a lot of movies from the 60s recently and my take away has been the fashion color palettes used when women got dressed up--wearing the same color, beginning with a woman's hat all the way down to her shoes.  I guess my feeling of needing to dress matchy mathcy these past couple of months has been my response to bucking the pattern on pattern/color blocking that has infected the fashion world for the past couple of years. These pics are my most recent attempt: 

Zara top, Top Shop tie dye short shorts

 Ray Ban sunglasses, Gucci yellow slides
Have a great last day of summer everyone.
XOXO

  1. Love the outfit combination and yellow is a fabulous colour on you. Normally I'm not for matchy-matchy but I love the break up of yellow with the gorgeous orange of the shorts.
