Fresh Fish

School’s started again, but it’s still hot AF, so here’s a simple, summery outfit. It’s another one inspired by Keira Knightley’s wardrobe in Begin Again – more specifically, this look. Basically, whenever I put together an outfit with a short-sleeve/sleeveless top and linen pants, you can trace it back to that movie.

Anyway, it looks like it’s going to be a busy semester. I’m teaching four classes in total – Screenwriting II, Adaptation, Script Editing, and Screenwriting for Directing Major – but at least they’re all classes that I enjoy and I don’t have to teach any freshman (despite the post title), which is never fun. On top of that, I’m also translating American GodsĀ ANDĀ Good Omens, two of my favorite books ever. So it’s going to be busy but fun, and I won’t have it any other way.

One Bottom, Two Tops

Thanks everyone for your kind words about my dog. She’s doing well now. Luckily, she only got flesh wounds, and in Vietnam we have a saying that goes “A dog heals its skin, a chicken heals its bones”, which means dog’s skin and chicken’s bones are easy to heal, so it looks like she’s on her way to a full recovery.

I have two casual outfits today. The semester is officially over for the students, but there are still papers to read and grades to turn in, so I opted for something easy and breathable. I didn’t realize it until I put the two of them together, but they are actually inspired by Keira Knightley’s outfits in Begin Again, specifically these two. I’ve been getting inspirations for my summer wardrobe from that movie since I first saw it – it’s one of the few movies with realistic costumes that I can actually recreate, and it helps that her character’s style is pretty timeless too.
