Summer red + white cotton combo

This is my first uploaded project here.

It was a very warm summer, last year. My summer clothes is all made of cotton and linen, I like natural materials that allow me to breathe during the strong heat waves. My BF, photographer, said to me that he wanted to take some pics in a city nearby and said “wear something… specific”. He didn’t had to tell me twice :)

So, I took basic pattern for pants, found snow-white cotton in my closet (bought several meters few years ago) added some cuffs and higher retro belt with two red little buttons. Blouse, sleeveless, literally vulgaris, has only front and back line stitches that make her follow my body shape. First I took transparent buttons, but few minutes after switched to red ones.
Headband is plastic, covered with a thin layer of red cotton and the red balls around my neck are DIY made of very light wood and colored by my hands, cca 5 yrs ago.

I look like a soccer mum in it, someone said to me before. I’m not sure is this supposed to be offensive :confused: :)
