Summer Knit

Shorts: TopShop. Jumper: Urban OutfittersShoes: Zara. 
Neon Bracelet: Courtesy of CC Skye. (check out the necklace version here)

There's something about a light weight knit that seems to balance out short shorts perfectly. I snagged this one from the Urban Outfitters sale.

I'm so jealous that it's warm enough for you to wear shorts.. I'm in Australia where we're just transitioning from Summer to Autumn and while we had some sunny days last week, it's been absolutely freezing lately!! Literally wearing 4 layers as I type!!! Insane.
Really love this look though, I like how your posts always combine high street stores with some more high end pieces so that your readers can find the same items in store. You seem so down to earth and it always makes my day to see you on my dashboard :)
Hope you had a lovely easter xx
