Shorts/Snakeskin cover/Creepers: H&M (they have two toned creepers in right now) similars online.   Hat: Trash & Vaudeville (this would’ve worked too).  Necklace: House of Harlow (found mine at a local shop). Shades: Ray Ban.  Bag: Thrift/DIY studded

You can tell it’s a bank holiday since the internet is dead (for the US that is).  Tweets/emails have slowed and the streets are half empty since everyone’s done the mass pilgrimage to anywhere outside of the city.  It’s precisely why I love staying local:  it’s quiet.

Next time I escape the city for a couple of days, it’ll be during the week!

I found this snake skin print cover at H&M.  The print and light weight fabric got me.  It was in the underwear section which goes to show, check everywhere when looking around.  It’ll be a good layering piece over a bikini on the beach.

I wore everything with creepers to give a chunky look but being they are ivory, it keeps them summery.  It’s rare finding white ones with light coloured soles.  Remember this post on them last November??  I was sold.  They’re switch ups from the black.

ps.  The ombre shorts come in a white/reddish colour combo too – a nice update from the usual denim shorts.

      Trust me it’s editing from quite a few pictures. You should see the ones that get rejected….!

    The snake cover looks amazing on you! I can see how it would be the perfect summer piece, because as hot as it is, the thing that sucks about summer is the lack of layering… this is a great way to sneak in a layer here and there!

    I also stayed in the city as well… it is peaceful!
