I love this look (via If You Seek Style). Not necessarily for me, but I love the monochrome and the juxaposition of the very short, beachy shorts with the tough ankle boots and polka dot blouse. Trés chic, in an utterly modern way.

Something that irks me about street syle and personal style blogs, however, is that there seem to be very few of them run by women who aren’t model thin and pretty. That’s not a criticism of people who are model thin and pretty – lucky them! – but just a kind of yearning for images of fashion that are slightly more diverse than we’re used to. Blogging and the internet are such broad media, I would love if they were used for ownership of fashion to be taken by women (and men) who aren’t necessarily the precise images of fashion we’re used to.
