I can't put my finger on what it is about the pairing of light grey with pale blue, but I love it. These shots almost look desaturated; a softer, calmer, cooler version of the original (they're not, by the way!). Back to school cool, this look had me harking back ten years ago (has it been that long?) to my time in Shanghai, wearing my school uniform of - oh, wait - grey and light blue. I literally just realised that as I typed it. I used to wrap my jumper around my waist exactly like this, nonchalantly, loosely, in the way that only an overly-confident, carefree teenager can make look natural. So I suppose this outfit is an ode to high school, and the fond memories I hold. I mean that in all seriousness; some of the best times of my life were spent growing up in Shanghai as  a TCK. What an amazing way to spend my teenage years - thanks mum and dad!
