This summer in Melbourne has been odd to say the least, and definitely has not been warm enough to store away my jeans for three months. For those days that seemed more like autumn, 3/4 length jeans were the obvious choice. I usually align 3/4 length jeans with mums who do the school drop-off, but for occasions like these they are so practical and even (dare I say it) chic. This outfit was inspired by my struggle with those in-between temperatures, where it isn’t necessarily warm but still isn’t categorised as cold. Note the sleeveless turtleneck and picnic rug/vest, giving you maximal space to experience a nice breeze on your exposed skin but enough coverage to keep you from getting the goosebumps. The 3/4 length jeans also served the same purpose, enabling a part of my legs to breathe if there was a bit too much heat building up. Yes my descriptions come across as comical, but I’m sure you are familiar with those in-between temperatures and understand exactly where I’m coming from. You need that crucial balance which is easy to achieve with sleeveless items, cardigans, light maxi skirts, maxi dresses and shortened jeans.

Clearly I think I nailed 17-19 degrees celsius fashion.
