A flowy blouse, accessorized with statement necklace and earrings or worn simple, its design representing the only artifice. It is the only inspiration I need for the beginning of this week. I would never wear it with skirts. It has enough femininity to be paired with shorts or jeans, taking work out of these summer outfits, the perfect balancing of elegance and casualness. A black, barely there blouse as a cover-up for the swimsuit? I don’t know if it’s the best colour for the August sun, but everything else works in its favour. Slip into easy pieces, spend time outside as much as you can, take a vacation if you haven’t already or at least take a few day trips outside the city, embrace every moment of this last month of summer and make it seem longer…I will definitely try to.
Happy August everyone! I hope your week and month are off to a wonderful and stylish start!
