sometimes i become so enamoured of a weekend outfit that i have to bring as much of it as a can into the work week.
i am wearing the akiko top, the manifold dress, the brilliant jacket and the amazing skirt by kaliyana. my boots are the pluto boot (closed collection) by trippen.

it is that crazy time of year when it can feel like spring in the morning and summer in the afternoon. so ... sleeves in the morning and no sleeves in the afternoon.
i am wearing the manifold dress, the balloon pant, the l/s akiko top and the akiko top by kaliyana. my boots are the pluto boot (closed collection) by trippen.

about two weeks ago, i went to see a ballet company touring from saint petersburg. the audience was full of ex-pats, dressed to the nines. for a few hours, i felt like a tourist, even though i was in my home city. it was nice.

i am finally coming to terms with the fact that the chances that i will be appropriately dressed on the first very warm day of spring* are slim ... very slim ... almost non-existent. so the trick is remaining cool, calm and collected on that day: yes, i may be slightly** over-heated**, but i will not show it. what i will show is that i meant to dress as i did. (yes, i am kidding. i am not that good an actor.)
*or, for that matter, the first very chilly day of fall.
**okay, a little more than slightly, maybe even tons more than slightly.
i am wearing a vest by moyuru. my dress and trousers are a local label (motion). i am wearing the pluto boot (closed collection) by trippen.

that makes a total of eighteen pockets! (three dresses. six pockets in each dress. three by six makes eighteen.) this six pocket dress is a bit longer than my other two -- it felt right to go longer this time*. i am looking forward to wearing it (sans trousers underneath) when it gets a bit warmer. i see it being a perfect alternative to my long-ish rundholz l/s big black dress. (i think that i just stumbled across a new phenomenon -- the "bbd"!)
*this six pocket dress also has extra long sleeves and thumb holes (i love extra long sleeves and thumb holes).
i am wearing the alpen top by kaliyana. my dress and trousers are a local label (motion). my vest is by moyuru. i am wearing the rectangle boot (closed collection) by trippen.
