Be Square

The weather has thankfully cooled down (not much, it’s still in the lower 90’s, but that’s way cooler than a couple of days ago when you could fry eggs on the sidewalk, and looks like it’s going to rain later in the week too), so I was finally able to wear something a bit different. When I first bought this shirt, this was one of the combinations that came to mind immediately – there’s something about the pleats and the eyelets that complement each other, I think – and yet for one reason or another, I haven’t remembered to put them together until now. To be fair, during the last two weeks, it was way too hot to think about “putting together” an outfit. All I asked myself when picking out clothes was “Is it baggy?” “Is it natural fabric?” and “Is it not pajama?” I’m crossing my fingers that the cool weather lasts a bit longer, so I can get back to taking outfit photos. I’ve missed it.

  1. Haha, I can relate to choosing clothes for their weather appropriateness rather than outfit-prettiness! I’ve been feeling that way too.
    I love this combination! It’s so pretty and fresh.

  2. Lovely! I like the modern edge with the feminine silhouette. Feels very you 🙂
