Off-The-Shoulder

First of all, lets talk about the very sunny (and very hot) change of scenery. I'm no longer in the very miserable London with it's poor excuse of summer that is looking and feeling a lot like winter... (although that changed pretty much as soon as our airplane took off!!) no, I'm currently in the very lovely Malta with it's 30 something degree celsius weather - aka what I've been waiting for since I left the maltese sun behind this time last year!!




The thought of hot weather, sun bathing and clear blue sea is honestly what keeps me going through the year - especially this year whilst I was going through what seemed like endless exams upon exams and all I could really tell myself (repeatedly) was that "soon it'll be summer!".

Another thing that (in better words) absolutely sucks about the terrible British weather is that it leaves you in a rather difficult situation in terms of taking blog pictures; I mean how can anyone really look good whilst posing in the pouring rain with their hair drenched and hanging like a mop around their face whilst jumping every few minutes half expecting to get hit by thunder and lightning. But enough with the negativity, I'm now in the gorgeous Malta surrounded by Palm trees, Pools and Pina colada's and I need to immediately dispose of the typical briton inside of me who complains about the weather; "too cold", "too hot", "too humid"!! We're just never happy, are we...




But back to my rather beautiful surroundings. This is my third time visiting Malta, and my third time staying at this hotel, however this is the first time I've actually explored this 'garden maze' and ventured around the hotel instead of being glued to a sun lounger. And all I can wonder is why I didn't look sooner - it is seriously all so gorgeous!! 

I've been wanting the shoot this outfit for a while now and thought what better time than on holiday in the sun and with a tropical background that is just a bit of a change from my trusty white house background.

I love this outfit (or any outfit with an off the shoulder top) at the moment - I think it is just so flattering but still easy to style. It's like showing skin, without showing too much skin - it really is just the perfect summer piece that should definitely be in everyones wardrobes this summer!



I must admit, this post is going to be a tad photo heavy... but there was just so much to capture and I couldn't not share it!!

My favourite thing about this outfit is the pure simplicity of it - I quite literally threw the pieces together and then threw it on! As I said in a previous post, my summer colour palette is rather simple yet I love this as it means pretty much everything can be worn together. 

I will forever stand by the statement "less is more" and that's maybe why I love this outfit as much as I do. The casual white shirt and ripped denim shorts gives off such an effortless vibe whilst the pop of red from the espadrilles just adds 'that extra something'. 





I am definitely sure of the fact that I'll be wearing this outfit all through summer, and even if the now nice British weather doesn't stick this outfit will look equally as good with a pair of boyfriend jeans replacing the shorts.








Shorts - Zara
Shirt - Zara 
Shoes - Topshop
Sunglasses - Rayban

I am such a summer girl, so the sunny weather and heat instantly uplifts my mood, so I know this will be such a lovely blog post to look back on in the (colder) future.

I hope everyone is having a great summer so far whether you are in a tropical location or at home. 

Kisses,
Maija Lily Xx

P.S. Let's all just ignore my obnoxious tan lines, okay.
