Hi there, Blogoshpere! It's Day One of my Ten Day Challenge, are you excited? I have a beachy outfit for you, as promised, since a group of friends and I are headed to... wait for it... THE BEACH!
I'm not too sure what my inspiration was. Colours, definitely colours. As well as a 1950's vibe, a la stripped bodysuit and short-shorts. The tie-dye turban was a bit of fun and an easy way to add an extra element of colour to the outfit.
Oh hi there, glamorous girl-looking-over-her-shoulder! Oh wait, thats me. Let's talk about that raffia bag, isn't is amazing? It's my uni bag, yep I'm pretty proud of it.
This outfit was a lot of fun to put together. I went a little colour crazy at first and had to swap some pieces for a toned-down version. For example, I almost wore a pair of neon floral shorts. Yep, you heard me, NEON FLORAL. No doubt you will see those in a post sometime soon. What I wore; Majority of this outfit is Vintage. The shorts were handmade by my mother when she was roughly my age. The bodysuit is a vintage find on eBay. Raffia bag is from a local op-shop. Mum's hand dyed/DIY'd silk scarf worn as turban (my mother is pretty handy). Jelly flats from Big W or something and assorted jewelrey. Oh and the sunnies, I got them from the Lost & Found at my work. Scungy? No, BARGAIN!
So this concludes the first post of my 10 day Outfit Challenge. Stay tuned for Day 2 tomorrow. Arrivederci!
