And another week comes to a close. I sort of enjoy this casual-OOTD snapping, it’s more true-to-life than setting up the tripod at home after work. A lot of the time I don’t even get home until late because of errands or going to dinner, so it makes more sense to me to capture these clothes as I am living in them.
Monday: Carhartt beanie, Muji poplin shirt, Uniqlo Ultra Stretch ankle jeans, Nike Lunarglide 4+
Tuesday: JCrew buttondown, Gap striped skirt
Wednesday: Uniqlo AIRism scoopneck tee, Cotton On skirt
Thursday: JCrew seersucker sundress
Friday: H&M Basics maxidress
Monday gave us some freak rain which wreaked havoc on my hair. I guess wearing a beanie in 85F + humidity makes no sense, but my hair was going haywire and I thought slapping a hat on it would tame it–it didn’t. But I always feel cool in my orange beanie, so on it went. Tuesday’s blues were an unexpected fun combo–I will definitely re-wear this outfit to work in the summers, along with the jacquard dot popover variation from last month. I still have my menswear-cravings, but JCrew’s aesthetic isn’t quite where I am anymore. This is a way to keep those pieces in use, and I’m glad I still like this look, though I would only wear it to work now.
The last three days were an experiment–I definitely felt like the temperature was cooler in my white dress (much discovery!) but the seersucker fabric is a little stiff is not as comfortable as the stretchy AIRism and cotton fabrics of Wednesday and Friday respectively.
In conclusion: I have more than proven that I can wear black in the summer. If only white didn’t attract food stains, the world would be perfect.
For those of you heading into the upcoming heatwave with me in Southern California, let us all stand firm–in the shade, with iced coffee. Have a great weekend!
