“Little” and I were chatting about her favourite colour the other day. Like most 5 year old girls, her favourite colour has always been pink. But this time she said “blue”. I was surprised at her answer and asked why she has chosen this new favourite, and she said: “Because it’s the colour of the ocean, and I miss the ocean”. I think many Jo’burgers like us start missing the ocean this time of year. It’s not quite holiday time yet but it’s creeping nearer and we start to long for it. So, my fashion post today is dedicated to blue and the ocean.
These items are inspired by the ocean holiday that’s coming soon. The wide brim hat, cotton shirt, linen shorts that aren’t too short and some comfortable flats. Throw some flipflops in your bag for that walk along the beach.
