I won't be ranting about the
temps de cochon awful weather we've had these past weeks. I just adapted my Summer fashion aspirations and traded little colorful dresses and flat sandals for jackets, cropped trousers and closed shoes.
When I count the very little number of times I've been able till now to wear 100% Summer clothes, it only strengthens my belief that spending and buying a lot on these "warmer" seasons is not worth it this side of the old continent.
When it comes to workwear, what I've worn most frequently lately were actually mid-season clothes:
Etoile cropped jacket or Zara trench, conservatively cut tees (a modest round collar cut, no deep V neck, not sheer), shirts, ankle cut trousers and brogues or ballet flats.
As for week-ends, I've relied on the same kind of outerwear, a variety of jeans, slim cargos and my destroyed sneakers.
So in conclusion (completely self-congratulatory) I feel even more satisfied of my Summer shopping restraint.
Now if only the sun could come out, I still want to wear those little colorful dresses... No I'm not ranting, just expressing myself.
I couldn't take a pic of what I wore last Thursday so I made this Polyvore set.
