In some parts of Canada, it’s warm and sunny and summer is well on its way. And then there’s Vancouver, and I seriously thought about putting my flannel sheets back on the bed last night. I am so tired of being cold and I’m chomping at the bit to wear something other than a sweater.
I’m still wearing clothes with a lot of coverage, but in lighter weights. This maxi skirt came from H&M four years ago; I seem to take exceptionally good care of my clothes because they seem to last forever. It’s a little bit more effort, but the majority of my clothes get hung to dry and I use a liquid fabric softener in the wash. Trust me, liquid fabric softener makes a huge difference for air-dried clothes.
The blouse came from H&M last month. I’ve rolled up the cuffs and knotted it in the front, otherwise this outfit looks a little too Edwardian School Teacher, which is cool, but it’s not the look I’m going for. I doubt Edwardian school teachers wore polka dots, anyway. The structured top brings a nice balance to the free-flowing skirt.
