A fond memory springs to mind whenever I clad myself in all denim. It’s a memory of my mom getting ready to go to town on a Saturday morning. I used to wake up at 6 am almost every Saturday to watch cartoons and eat cereal (in peace) before my terrorist little brother woke up. I must have been about 8 years old and my brother would have been a little over a year old. (Said brother has since outgrown his terrorist phase and is now a really nice guy.) As part of my routine, I would go to my mom’s room and watch her routine. Every detail, from getting dressed to makeup and hair. She would entertain all my questions and attempts at taking part until the one sad question would arrive; “can I come with you to town?” which was always met with the inevitable “no, your brother will cry all over town.”
True to the title of this post, I’d like to be short and sweet. This look is my favourite summer ensemble, the playful neckpiece from Lovisa being the hero piece. I bought these denim shorts from MRP about four years ago after seeing Beyonce in a similar pair looking godly. (Not embarrassing at all, we must all do as the queen does). What I love most about denim is that it lives forever.
