I’ve never noticed how… done this owl on my brooch looks. It’s like she physically can’t roll her eyes back any further, that’s how done she is.
I’m pretty done too. I would say “Happy Friday”, except my week is not over – I still have a workshop class to teach on Sunday. So enjoy your weekend everybody, while I’m like this:
Shirt & Jeans: Mango, Shoes: Vagabond, Brooch: vintage
And my looks this week – I like the individual outfits, but as a whole capsule, it’s pretty random:
Even though it’s pretty warm here (see: sleeveless shirt), I’m determined to add more fall-appropriate touches to my outfits. Like these oxfords. Truth be told, I’ve been having a hard time styling them. I don’t know what else to wear with them other than jeans. They’re a bit severe-looking, so this time I tried pairing them with something girly to see if that can be balanced out.
Well, it backfires, because they went from “masculine” to “old lady” in .01 seconds. How is that even possible?! Maybe I should just embrace their toughness and save them for my menswear outfits.

We’ve been having a lot of rain lately, so even though it’s not cool enough to start layering yet, I can finally add a few touches of fall here and there to my outfits. Like this scarf. I was trying to copy this look, but my scarf is slightly too large so it ended up looking a lot clumsier than the inspiration photo. But then again the inspiration has been put together by a stylish and worn by a model, so I can’t compete 🙂

It’s been quite stressful last week. Monday went deceptively well, and Tuesday was OK except it was raining cats and dogs so I couldn’t take photos of this outfit until later. And then on Wednesday I had such a bad case of food poisoning that I had to call in sick for two days. Then on Friday my nephew was sick with bronchitis, so I had to spend Saturday at my sister’s place to help out (he’s better now.) So please excuse me if I end this week’s posting a little earlier than usual.

And my looks this week – not that it counts as a “capsule” when you have two completely unrelated outfits:
For about a week before and after Labor Day, I’ve seen quite a number of posts/articles on style blogs about wearing white after Labor Day. And I thought, really? It’s the year 2015 and we’re still talking about how to wear white after Labor Day? It’s the easiest thing in the world. You just wake up after Labor Day, and put on a piece of white clothing. Or two. They don’t even have to match (like me.) Done!
What we really need to talk about is, how come it’s 2015 and we’re not adopting trends like the double-tie or the inside-out pockets yet? (I may or may not have recently caught Back to the Future II on TV…)

My looks this week – not exactly cohesive, but I wasn’t in a cohesive state of mind anyway:
