Gone are the days of fluro green sets, thank goodness.
Almost a couple of decades later and things have changed quite dramatically - no cargo pants in sight. Plus, I'm really, really into matching two-piece sets, especially in the summertime. I guess it comes as no surprise that this Elliatt set has become a favourite of mine this season then, lace and all.
The light fabric makes sizzling hot days and long sleeves bearable, while the stripes keep it trendy. Of course, I couldn't help but toughen up this pretty look with my favourite black leather booties and structured cross body bag.
There's no doubting that this matching top and shorts set will make it's way into my suitcase this weekend too, as I tick off a bucket list travel moment of mine; the Whitsundays and the Great Barrier Reef off the coast of Queensland with one of my favourite beauty brands, Tarte Cosmetics!
