outfit | washed denim + digital florals

Forever 21 Chambray Top, Motel Dress (worn underneath), Diva Curb Chain Neckalce & Combat Boots
I am back with an outfit post and can you believe that it has been raining in the middle of the Australian summer? I for one was excited at the prospect of pulling some fall items out of my closet even though it is for one or two days. My outfit was very much inspired by a chambray button down which I came across while mindlessly browsing online. It was a light wash denim with digital floral sleeves. The reason it stood out was the juxtaposition of the ordinary (the denim) and the trendy (i.e. digital florals). So I took it upon myself by putting together an outfit which was practical yet still incorporated some of the elements of the dress. I took this particular chambray top and wore it over the printed dress by Motel. I also tried the front of the blouse to give it a more casual vibe. The black combat boots were also a great addition to the outfit, just to give it a little edge. On a side note, this outfit also hid my horrendous tan lines which I acquired from watching the tennis recently - always a plus in my book!

I would not have thought that a combination of classic denim and modern digital florals could work until I saw that blouse. It just takes some inspiration to create the most unexpected things.
