I felt so reluctant to post these photos since this outfit since (aside from my earrings and growing collection of pins and broohes) everything is relatively boring. I don't usually dress for comfort but when the temperatures rise above 100 Fahrenheit, I think I'm allowed to be a little easier on myself. These shorts are something I bought before I moved from Melbourne and I am so glad I invested in a nice pair of black running shorts. While I try and resist the idea that the place I live has influenced my own personal style, the change in climate as well as the fashion I'm exposed to on a daily basis has changed my perception. It's a little more difficult to get excited over dressing up when everyone in town wears a shirt, shorts and sandals to the pub but I'm determined to continue to dress with a purpose. On the plus side, it's very easy to be the most glamorous person in a town when there is very little competition.
