For Valentine’s Day, I had brunch at Picnic. It’s one of my favourite cafes in South Yarra, mainly due to its reasonable prices, large glass windows letting in natural sunlight and the fact it was located about a stone’s throw away from the train station.
I wanted to wear a bit of red as a nod towards Valentine’s Day, but not something too girly. The flannel toughens the looks up and acts as a transitory space where the reds and blues blend together, before separating into the navy and maroon colour blocks of the crop top and skirt respectively. I think the final result is quite pleasing to the eye – the colours merge seamlessly together, nothing stands out too much.
Tying the flannel around my waist added another dimension to the bottom half of my outfit, and shows you don’t always have to wear shirts the way it is designed to be worn.
