You know what, when it came down to it I had quite a few items to choose from for Aussie Curves second hand week. Hand me down, swapped and eBay items make up the bulk of it. I looked at it all, hung it out where I could see it and went about trying to make sure these items made it into my everyday wear so I could grab a pic.

In the end, the surprising winner were these ASOS Curve jeans I picked up from Caitlin not last year, the year before. They’re practically vintage. In summer. I know. I must be mad. It’s been hot here, but you know what happens when it gets hot? Everyone cranks their air conditioning and I spent my days in a huddled bundle under my desk freezing my butt off. So jeans, light weight with cuffed hems have made their way back to the wardrobe already. I think a heavier denim may still be months away.

Paired with this oversized baseball tee from 17 Sundays BASIC and the tan accessories, this is a casual, comfy outfit perfect for a morning at the shops, movie dates or air-conditioned cafe. I added the hat because it just seemed SO perfect with the side plait, but alas, I’m just not a hat person. Let’s lament this fact for a moment, shall we… Sigh.

  • Ezmae Reid

    this look is quite vintage and i love it on you, your shoes are amazing with those jeans! I wish I were a hat person but I have a huge head and lots of hair which makes finding hats that fit impossible. 🙁 I feel for you.

    • Thank you E. I’ve just started wearing the strappier heels with jeans, it always felt a bit odd. A bit like the hat thing actually. Haha. Huge head, big hair here too.

  • I just CAN’T wear jeans in summer, it’s too hot and sticky – I don’t know how anybody can!

    • I only do it if I’ll be in air con a lot, otherwise you’d be nuts. 😉

  • My fro makes hat wearing difficult, so I feel your pain.
    That said, I really think you can pull off the hat. I like it.

    • Thank you. This is my beach hat and it’s the only one I own that doesn’t look entirely ridiculous. But still, oh to be a hat person!

  • abearmadethis

    love the shoes, you look great. I don’t really do jeans but I am a hat person. I loves me a hat xx

    • Thank you. The shoes were a really great find. Oh, you’re one of thooooose people are you? Sigh. Jealous. 😛

  • Katie Spijkerman

    I think the hat is super cute! And in NZ, I wear jeans in summer a lot, if its not above 25 degrees, my lilly white legs are not going to be on display!

    • Thank you!

      Haha. I imagine the weather allows for it a lot more than it does here. Today is overcast and it’s trying to rain. I could probably wear jeans again today. If I’m lucky. Haha.

  • Sophie Russell

    I really like the simplicity of this, and the colours are light and summery, so you don’t look warm. Nice x

    • Thank you Sophie. That’s the reality of it, isn’t it, sometimes a simple outfit is all life requires. That and a hat that bloody well fits. 😉

  • 1. I am wearing jeans as I type – and wear them during the summer (although more my light weight ones) and 2. no – I am not a hat person. my head is too big for hats……… Love the jeans and heels combo Mel.

    • So you’re mad too. Haha. Same problem here. This is the biggest size available and it’s still popping up off the top of ym head. Darn it.

      Thank you! 🙂

  • Air-conditioning? What is that you speak of? And where can I get some?

    You look so good in everything. Always. What’s with that? Even the hat. 🙂

    And I’m not a hat person. I feel like a proper toss when I wear one.

    • Haha. I love my air con, best you keep putting those pennies in the jar lady, you’re going to need it. It’s like living in Scotland without a heater or something. 😛

      Thank you. What IS with that? Well, it’s a million photos and I pick the best ones. Promise. Which reminds me, I have to do a behind the scenes/bloopers post. I’ll make sure I let you know when it’s live, it should be a laugh.

      Agreed. Darn hat people.

  • Those jeans are rad! I’m not a pants in summer person. If fact, I have a strict no pants policy in my house! hehe 🙂

  • This outfit looks super comfy, very beachy, though I don’t imagine jeans and the beach mix well, but it just gives me that vibe. That last photo = win!

    • Haha. I know right, I was going to leave that pic for the out-takes post I’m doing, but it was too much fun. Thanks lovely, it is very beachy. But absolutely the jeans and the beach don’t go thaaaaat well together, but I could make it work closer to winter. 😉

  • I love this look on you. It’s so playful. I’m heading up your way on Friday, visiting my husband’s family 🙂

    • Thank you Rachel. Oooo goodie. Time for a coffee during your visit? Let me know and I’ll inbox you my number somewhere.

  • Jocelyn ~ Mama’s Style

    You look comfy and cool Melissa! I totally get jeans in summer… we only get a few really hot days here in Wellington.

    • Thank you Jocelyn. Oh yes, haha, a bit too chilly for me. I like my summer’s HOT. 😉

  • Looking seriously funky and fun this week lovely. Love the turned up hem on your jeans…looks so good with the tan heels.

    • Thank you Lisa. I’m trying to not try so hard and just take photos that look like me, having fun. We’re getting there, I think. And yes! I turn up the hem on all my jeans now. I’m sort of obsessed or something.

  • Love the causal stylish look you have going on. Super cute tee.

    • Thank you Jeanie. I’m all about the casual at the moment and this tee is PERFECTION.
