Patchwork

I thought I would struggle a bit with this week’s SIA, inspired by the Korean jogabok wrapping cloth, because it’s so colorful and I don’t have anything like that in my closet. But then I noticed there are white and blue squares in the cloth, and I have just the right piece for it. Then I added some pink and red accents with my belt and shoes, and my bow brooch as the last touch, to mimic the bow in the middle of the cloth – and I’m done. It was way easier than I expected.

Just Right

Last time I wore these pants, they made me feel French, and this time, my outfit feels vaguely Japanese. It’s probably because it was inspired by this blog of a Japanese stylist, or because of the minimalist styling. I did put on a necklace but I took it off before taking pictures. The outfit doesn’t need it. It’s just right the way it is – simple and to the point. Just like this post 🙂

So Frawnch

At the risk of sounding totally pretentious, I must say this outfit feels quite French to me. I’m not sure if it’s the pants, the white button-up, the scarf, or the cropped trench coat, or a combination of them. No, it’s definitely the scarf. I usually zhuzh my scarves a lot whenever I wore them, but this time I just knotted it quickly and let it be. I guess that lends it a certain air of “je ne sais quoi”.

Of course, if this was truly a French look, I would have to pose with my coat around my shoulders, but I tried it and it looked like I had no arms, so I guess I’m not quite so French after all.
