summer days: the jaunty skirt and blouse
Photographer: Scott Schuman
I was looking at all the pictures I have saved in my computer, and decided that for someone living on the equator, I have way too many pictures of girls chicly cozied up in grey sweaters and scarves and trench coats.
So I think every week, or at least, on a regular basis, I'm going to post a picture of a fantastic warm weather outfit where the person isn't layered up to the gills. Even better if the outfit is sans jacket, and involves maybe two items of clothing max (excluding shoes etc).
And it's not about looks we wear to the beach, although I suppose if summer only came around for a few times a year, I would feel the need to dress like I were headed for the beach when the sun is blazing. Rather, it's about looks that still feel pulled together and purposeful in a going-about-my-business way, rather than a languid, vacation-y way.
Anyway, this outfit shot by Scott Schuman for The Sartorialist is one of my favourites. I like her easy, carefree, scruffiness, but she still has an elegance about her.
