Anchors & Watermelons

On the single most sunny day of this year I happen to receive a long-awaited online order, which contained two high-summer items, and also two of my personal go-to pieces on a hot summers day. The crop top and the high-waisted denim shorts. I have a lovely crop top in black (here) and I have various high-waisted shorts (here/here/here), but sometimes you just have to venture outside of your comfort zone and go for some unexpected elements. In this case: anchors and watermelons. I love the varsity feel of the top, and the bright fruity print adds a touch of parody to the currently very popular numbered shirt. I was so happy with the contents of my Choies package that I just had to throw it all on together, but later that night I paired the shorts with a simple white tank to tone it all down. Hands down one of my favourite looks for summer 2013.
