Sorry I'm late, but I didn't want to come

Posted on


The weather in Oxford (and basically all of the UK) is out of control. It's so hot that I actually put my hair up for once, which is very unlike me if you've been following The Sassy Street for a while...
I've had to be very careful about what I wear lately, because you never know when you'll find cool air again (no air conditioning!).  This time around, I went for some bright yellow shorts, a loose top, and then some nice cut-out platforms. After buying these shorts, I've realised just how difficult it can be to style the colour yellow.  If you try to pair it with all black, you could look like a bumblebee... but if you pair it with all white you risk the whole outfit looking too bright.  Hopefully I've found the right balance with this outfit!

  1. I love these high waisted shorts! I think you made the right decision by pairing white with light. I'm going to take some tips from you when I go to Europe in the fall!

  17. I was laughing for such a long time at the title! Every single time I'm late that's probably the reason why :')
    Your outfit is beautiful and so are the photos! Yellow is so tricky but you've styled it wonderfully and your hair looks lovely!

  21. Oh my gosh I know what you mean by heat! I'm in Texas and it's been humid and unbearable for weeks! And it's only going to get worse! I've definitley been sticking (literally) to sundresses, skirts, and crop tops!
