Summer, But Make It Fall

It’s still pretty warm over here, but there has been the tiniest hint of fall in the air – the sunlight is less scorching, and at night, it starts to get a bit chilly. So although I’m still wearing summery clothes (T-shirt, linen skirt, and flats), I had to add a nod to the fall with the brown T-shirt (if this was during the summer, I would’ve worn a white top) and the little scarf. Brown and blue is not a combo I wear very often, but it doesn’t look too bad, does it?


La Marinière

A horizontal striped top is one of the must-haves in my closet, and I can never have enough – it seems I’d buy new ones every year! This one, for example, is one of the few new items I bought last year (from Uniqlo). I’ve been wearing it casually a lot, but I wanted to try pairing it with something dressier, like this skirt. With its high waist and buttons, it makes me think Edwardian, and by pairing with this striped top and these canvas shoes, I could almost picture myself in the French Riviera in the early 20th century. When the pandemic makes it impossible to travel, I guess I have to rely on my clothes to do some traveling in my head.
