Sunshine and Storm Clouds

Nicolas and I have been slacking as far as the blog is concerned, but when summer calls, we answer.

Luckily the season provided the inspiration for today’s post with the weather oscillating between sunshine and thunderstorms, yellow and grey. These two colours support the point that opposites attract, and while I don’t believe this to be true in all interpretations of the phrase, where fashion is concerned it lends itself to some impactful ensembles. This just happens to be one of my favourites.

Marni Grut of Royal Blue provided the base for this outfit with her Lost Ballet tutu. A design like this called for something outside of the standard ballet fare so I opted for an 80’s style racer back tank and socks in yellow combined with black accenting to create a, dare I say, Scene Ballerina. Emphasizing this, LAP’s new Sugar and Spice poses are all about attitude and definitely bring this look to life.

Nic is wild about hats, so when Kari opened its doors Nic walked out with all three (the other two are bound to appear in future posts). The stitched newsboy cap gives this otherwise casual outfit a dose of chic while the yellow graphic tee from [insert cool name] brightens the look to summer standards. The laces of his shoes (also from Kari) tie this look together for a weathered look come rain or shine.

The pose frames from Lost Angels were a “must” for us and I strongly suggest them for all of you flickrites. Who knew being framed could look so good?

We hope you’re enjoying your summer, both the yellow and the grey, and if you can’t beat it — wear it.
