I just love it when the weather is warm enough and I can switch from my regular office pants to high-waisted shorts. For some reason I’ve always loved this silhouette partly because it does miracles for people on the shorter side such as myself. It is true, legs do tend to look longer with any high-waisted pants or skirts, but if you choose a mini length and pair it with high heels, then you’ve got yourself both an hourglass silhouette and Victoria’s Secret model legs.
Officially this is my go-to attire for summer in the city. And not just starting this year, my love for these type of shorts started a few years back hence I have them in loads of colours and prints but that’s not to stop me from buying new ones. You can pair these shots with any blouse or t-shirt and converse sneakers if you’re looking for a casual outfit.
For the outfit here I chose to combine teal-green with a bit of orange. I’m happier than ever as I got to wear my Sophia Webster pumps that I got last winter from The Outnet. To match the orange tip of thse beauties, I chose my orange Furla mini bucket bag, that despite the fact that it’s small, it can fit a lot of stuff inside thanks to its shape. As accessories I only wore a Constantin Nautics bracelet alongsite my Tomorrowland and Pandora rings. Watch-wise, we both wore our Longines.

D also went for a teal-green outfit, without the orange, but paid with his office Tommy Hilfiger jeans. I think you’ve seen this shirt in most of our old office posts, and yes, this is the one shirt that he has in six or seven colours. You can find this incredibly soft and easy to iron shirt at H&M for an amazing price. Like me, he didn’t bother with lots of accessories either and only wore his Fossil bracelet alongside his Longines watch. The lovely shoes that he’s wearing are from Bigotti and he had to wait for them to be shipped for over a week. Do not get this the wrong way, a few weeks ago you could find these shoes in any of their stores, but it takes my man a while to decide on whether to buy something for himself or not. By the time he decided that he had to have them, there was only one store in the country that still had them in his size. I, on the other hand, am the exact opposite with more than half the things in my wardrobe bought on the spur of the moment. Do not get me wrong! I REGRET NOTHING!

Ever since I dyed my hair blue, I tend to want to match my outfit to my locks, but this time I managed to only mildly do it with teal green. Naturally, my first instinct was to wear my blue Loubs, but I’m so glad I chose these Sophia Webster pumps as they are extremely comfortable despite the 100 mm heel.
I loved the fact that D matched my outfit and I hope we’ll be able to do this matchy-matchy game for many times to come!
