I’m throwing a party, she says,
and you’re not invited.
Fine, he replies,
Then be sure not to send me the bill.
So here’s the first look from my shopping spree last month. Mid-week, welcoming in my favorite season of the year and stepping out for a casual evening. It’s really simple and easy.
First, we start with the star of the outfit, the top I picked up on my spree. I fell in love with the inkblot print and chose this short, loose square-cut top from the plethora of options (kurta, dress, singlet). It’s a light cotton that was standing stiff on its first outing but will probably lose its starch over washes and be drapey instead (that sounds better than ‘fall limply’, doesn’t it? :-) ). It’s not sleek or sexy but it looked (and is!) so comfortable, I just had to own it!
These were paired with the new classic blue jeans I picked up early in the month (having decided to quit being in denial about my old jeans that have been 2 sizes too small for me all winter). It’s such a pleasure to be able to breathe. And never mind the itty-bitty-pretty and unreliable sandals, I was continuing my ‘comfort-0ver-chic’ attitude. These zebra-printed babies (seen before here) are kitcshy but so comfortable!
And that…pretty much…was it! Plenty of talcum powder, a dab of nude lipgloss, I ditched my handbag for a few notes stuffed into my mobilephone cover. And I was ready for a cool summer evening out in town!
