Colour Blocking



Due to my recent obsession with black and white, I haven’t worn much colour this summer at all. Since the season is coming to an end soon, I’ve been trying to get some more wear out of my brighter pieces, one of them being these red shorts. Red and blue is my favourite colour blocking combination, so here I paired the shorts with my favourite navy slub tee.



colour-blocking-5I’ve always admired white  canvas plimsolls from a distance, but I’ve never purchased a pair myself. Being a clumsy guy at times, I was always concerned that I’d get white footwear dirty in a heartbeat. A couple months ago I picked these affordable white plimsolls from Muji. They’re so comfortable to wear because they are practically weightless. And to my surprise, even after so many wears, they’re still white!


I’m wearing:

Tee : Cotton On | Shorts : Banana Republic | Shoes : Muji | Backpack : Herschel (c/o) | Watch : Daniel Wellington (c/o)
