Our house was under renovation when I took these photos. My usual location (the front yard) was taken over by a pile of sand and a cement mixer, hence the new location (the side yard). It’s actually easier to set focus here thanks to the branches and bushes on the sides of the path, so maybe I’ll take photos here more often.
Anyway, this is a simple and not very blog-worthy outfit, but I’d like to post it anyway to give this blouse some spotlight. It’s so fun and I wear it a lot, but it rarely gets featured on the blog because I always pair it with basic pieces – I don’t want any color or accessory to clash with the print. Do you guys have any suggestion?
Today is the first day that feels like… I wouldn’t say fall is here, but summer is definitely on its way out. There is a hint of crispness in the air, a touch of mist among the trees (though it could be smog), and even though the sunlight is still hot, it no longer scorches but falls more gently. Of course, it will be at least another month or two before it can truly feel like fall around here, but I’ll take what I can.
And to celebrate that, I’m wearing the new top I bought from my trip. I don’t usually buy anything full prize, but when I saw this in the store, I had to get it. I love anything with a ginkgo motif (I already have a brooch), and the fact that it’s made of rayon just sealed the deal. It’s the perfect transitional piece – the fabric is light enough for summer, while the print is appropriate for fall.
