SEWING: Floral shorts on a Berlin Summer day

Warm summer days in Berlin have been few and far between for the past 2 years. So when there is a glimmer of hope for a warm sunny day I can't help but break out the high waist shorts. I made these high waisted floral shorts weeks before summer started and was able to wear them on the Berlin beer fest. Unfortunately I won't be wearing these shorts without tights for a while.... winter is coming:(

I paired the shorts with my favourite vintage white blouse. I actually bought the first version of this blouse in Mount Lawley, Australia. I wore the blouse so much that it started to turn yellow. Gross! So luckily I found a new version in a secondhand store in Berlin. 

Don't you just love it when you find a garment to replace a warn through favourite? What replacement pieces have you found or made?
