And finally, a new blouse!  Navy with heart prints 😀  Love those love-hearts.

I plan to document my year by snapping some little pics here and there and then sharing them with you all!

Uni starts tomorrow and I feel nervous, excited, un-composed, and fully prepared yet unprepared for what lies ahead.  Here’s to the future!

P.S.  A bit of tune talk… a couple of favourite songs:  “Gravity” by Sara Bareilles, “Happy” by Pharrell Williams, “Brave” by Sara Bareilles, and I did like “Say Something”… until the radio totally overplayed it… 😐

Leaving our week-long island home  – Great Barrier Island – at the beginning of January.  Such an awesome experience!

A montage of the flight into Great Barrier Island on a small 14 seat plane, the breathtaking view literally 15 metres from our cabin, and the cool gals I met – one of which is studying with me this year!

A little gift and card that I made for my dear friend and blog photographer – Rhesa!  Snapped a pic before packaging it up.  Vintage is the way people.

We will now return from our brief interlude – the review on Modest Sea – and come back to, the White Shorts Series.

This second outfit has a definite summer feel, which is fitting, as the weather over here in New Zealand is improving!  I believe I feel another fashion photo shoot coming along, in which Lydia will be organising the outfits.  Wasn’t it great last time?!

You can also wear other blouses with these shorts, I have two button up blouses with floral patterns that look lovely with these shorts.  Very feminine, but still practical.  I really like the look of these two colours together.  There’s a place for lovely, soft pastels , but bright, bold, opposite colours look stunning together and really catch your eye.  Not to mention, that this outfit reminds me of a lovely summer sky, the bright blue expanse dotted with fluffy, white clouds.

Have a look at the photos below.  I hope you’re enjoying this series, my basic aim is to show you how you can achieve different looks by changing just one part of the outfit.  Experiment yourself, as I’m sure this principle can apply to lots of other items in your wardrobe.

Enjoy your summer and the upcoming lovely weather!
