Cheerleader







this is a bit of a bright one isn't it? sometimes i'm just in that mood. i didn't realise until after i'd left the house but i kind of (unintentionally) look like a cheerleader so i'm going to pretend the meaningless R on my jumper stands for rydell high. i actually thought the shorts were a skirt when i bought them. it was at a market stall with no changeroom so i just had to buy them on the spot and when i tried them on later i didn't understand what i was doing wrong when i couldn't fit myself into one of the legs, and then it dawned on me! luckily i think they're awesome as shorts and they're definitely one of the more unique things i own.

scarf: my grandma's
polo shirt: op-shopped
jumper: ASOS
shorts: vintage
socks & shoes: kmart

  4. Your outfit is perfect - I actually love that those are shorts! It means you don't have to worry when the wind blows, haha. I've actually had an eye out for skirtish shorts (skorts?)/culottes.

  10. You are gorgeous, and I'm loving this outfit! You do look a little like a cheerleader (reminds me of the movie Grease), but you look so adorable and lovely. You have such a great eye! Luuurve.

  13. so cute! love your sweater! and yes, culottes can be tricky but so much fun.

    your outfit reminds me of 60s godard movies; actually, he's still pretty much obsessed with red, white and blue. whenever i wear that color combo i think of his movie credits ha ha

  16. Oh my word, do I adore this punchy, fabulous outfit! A vintage school letter sweater (and/or jacket) is high up on my wish list, and seeing you in this one just makes me yearn for one all the more. I've always hoped to find one to partner with a coordinating circle skirt for a 1950s cheerleader look.

    Have a gorgeous July, dear gal!

    *PS* Thank you deeply for your caring words regarding our flooded basement. ♥

    1. ohh a dream outfit! it's just hard to find them short and cropped so they suit the skirt properly, i had to fold this one up and tie it at the back, but hopefully we'll both find the perfect little sweaters one day! xo

  23. You're such a stylish thing! I usually play it safe with black, white or burgundy when it comes to clothes, although I did buy an amazing pair of colourful pants in Topshop today that I'm absolutely in love with. I love the whole 1950s/retro cheerleader vibe going on here. You could be a character right out of Grease!
