the shorts suit

[arnsdorf.jpg]

Anything that has a Virginia McKenna in
'Born Free' kind of vibe is alright in my book.
Which is why I've fallen just a teeny weeny bit in love with this
Arnsforf shirt and short set. Perhaps not entirely weather appropriate for now, but come Spring it'll be just perfect. What's even more splendid is that if you're unable to find $360 down the back of the sofa (because that's how much it'll cost in aus dollars), you can quite easily recreate the look for yourself with shorts and shirts from the charity shop. Maybe an alternating coloured set for each day of the week? From dusty pink on monday right through to pillarbox red on sunday, I dare you.

Ah yeah, that is a fabulous film, haven't seen it in years! The outfit is definitely similar to the kind of things she wore in that role but I'm fast running out of sunny days to wear such combinations! Having to break out the thick tights more and more now.
