Denimic Duo

A puny pun to start off the post; how fantastic! Seeing double denim looks all over the blogosphere for the entire summer and not seeing a pun spun on the denims donned had me slightly frustrated, so I actually went and did a denim on denim look for the sake of it. Being three months late, obviously.

Disclaimer: I was neither about to cry nor furious at the world in these photos. It was a mistake on my part to put on James Bay's Chaos and the Calm while shooting these photos because Mr Bay's vocals can send me straight to sleep; it's like a cup of green tea latte. Whipped-creamed and chocolate shavings-sprinkled. Served with pineapple tarts and little biscuits.

I digress.

Lightweight and extremely comfortable, these two pieces are a (denim) dream to wear. Embroidered on the collar of the denim top is a delicate pattern of lace, an effortless way to downplay the tough fabric, making the button down feminine and soft. Paired with a pair of denim bottoms just a slight shade darker, of which I clumsily hacked off the legs to create shorts, the look remains slightly sweet. 

Being someone who is a huge believer in destroying anything precious and darling, out came the black accents in the form of an outerwear, a choker and footwear that makes it seem as if I don't own any other pair of shoes. Predictable at this point, really, but fail-proof all the same.

We were meant to shoot these photos outdoors, but two steps out the door and the sky cracked open. 

As I sat in the car, some form of acoustic music playing on the stereo, aromatizing caffeine most likely, I watched as fat droplets of rain whisked down from the heavens, missionaries from the Divine sent to condemn the haze that has been engulfing South East Asia away.

I felt melancholy descend alongside the pittering, pattering raindrops. They splattered onto the windscreen like upturned cups of coffee, each exploded blob replicating the pensive and the gloom. I say this every month, but a muted despondence somehow weaves its way into life at the end of each, a fungi that obliterates twigs and branches.

The tree stands strong, however. Howl the winds will, engulf the decay shall, but as the month tucks itself into bed and a new sun rises, I'll find myself soaking up the rays and building a screen to dispel the rain.

Are you looking forward to the new month?
