In the summer, I’m constantly searching for new ways to accessorize my outfits. Brooches don’t always work with my summer tops – not just because they may destroy the thinner fabric, but also because my summer tops tend to be printed and a brooch can’t stand out enough, while layering is mostly out of the question (I make do with my waistcoat and suspenders, but can’t rely on them all the time.) So here I am, trying a new look – the headscarf. I actually wear a headscarf like this whenever I bike in the summer, to prevent sweat from falling into my eyes, but it’s the first time I feature it on the blog. For some reason, the headscarf worn like this seems vaguely 1970s to me, so I kept the rest of the outfit 70s-inspired with my jean culottes and clogs.
This linen top is another thrift store find. I’ve been looking for more orange/rust/brown-colored tops (earth tones like those look good on me), and I was drawn to the cute little flowers embroidered on this. Of course, being linen, it wrinkles like crazy (these pants do, too – they wrinkle almost as soon as I put them on) but I’ve learned to just not give a fuck. It’s been so hot lately that I can only tolerate natural, breathable fabrics like cotton and linen. I’d take the wrinkles over sweaty, smelly synthetic fabrics any day.
