Calm SummerPosted: August 27, 2013
The post title is supposed to be sarcastic because this summer has been anything but calm. I managed to grab these pictures in about 10 minutes (a record for me!) in between two rain storms, and there will be more rain later in the week. It helps that the outfit doesn’t have a lot of detail. I feel the lace on the shirt provides enough visual interest that I don’t need anything else. Plus the inspiration painting is pretty simple on its own too.
I got this shirt along in the same sale with the peach T-shirt I wore last week, hoping it would fill the white tee-shaped hole in my closet, but looks like I’d have to keep an eye out for something more fitted and less semi-transparent. You’d think it’s nothing simpler than finding a basic white tee, yet none of the ones I tried on looks right… maybe I’m being too picky? Or maybe “basic” is not really my style. I like simplicity but I can’t really pull off those simple outfits that look crazy chic on some and would just look plain boring on me.
