something old is something new top



the skirt and n/s top i have already worn this summer. the l/s top i have also worn this summer ... with a lot of clothes ... but not with this skirt and n/s top. so something old can make something new.

i am wearing the oggi top, the giant pocket skirt and the wing top by kaliyana. my shoes are the cosmos shoe (closed collection) by trippen.

i am wearing the meteor top, the pelican top and the amazing skirt by kaliyana. my cardi is by skif. i am wearing the service booties (x + os collection) by trippen.

not the plan top and skirt



my plan was to break into colour with this outfit. black with multi-coloured dots. it seemed like an appropriate transition from black. but as plans sometimes go, this plan didn't work out. instead of wading into the pool through the shallow end, i jumped headlong into the deep end. with that red dress that i wore a few days back. maybe i shocked myself ... enough to retreat ... but not all the way.

i am wearing the honolulu dress, the amazing skirt and the maggio top by kaliyana. my shoes are the vitali shoe (box collection) by trippen.

cue the song dress


one of my work colleagues says that, whenever she sees me wearing red, she is inspired to break into song ... with a very particular tune. i tell her that if wants to sing, and even that particular tune, i won't mind at all.

surprising change in dress


it was about a year ago that i used to meet up with a "familiar stranger" every saturday morning. i was always on my way to yoga practice and he was always on his way to work (a hair salon). we didn't interact, except on that one day when i appeared dressed "not in black" and he remarked on it. soon after that one interaction, the hair salon where he worked moved. since that time, we haven't seen each other. until the day this summer when i first brought out my whites. oddly, it was a saturday and i was on my way to yoga practice. i don't know where he was going. it wasn't our "usual place" to meet up. but meet up we did. and my not wearing black had the same effect on him this summer as it did last summer. funny that.

i am wearing the manifold dress, the pelican top and the balloon pant by kaliyana. my shoes are the cosmos shoe (closed collection) by trippen.

still like 'em trousers



so many pairs of trippens sit in my wardrobe. some purchased recently and some purchased a while ago. some i have worn and some i have yet to wear. despite the selection available to me, i have latched on to this pair. a pair that haven't (until now) seen much wear. so typical of me. with a few exceptions, my kaliyana wardrobe this season is made up pieces purchased in years past. so the shoes are what is changing things up this summer, defining this season and setting it apart from summers past.

i am wearing the mykonos top, the cool pant and the maggio top by kaliyana. my shoes are the cosmos shoe (closed collection) by trippen.
