the secret wardrobe life of wardrobetales no. 9 (rundholz edition)





last day of the month. time for another glimpse at my secret wardrobe life. i know that i have said this before but i can't help but say it again. i am more likely to reach for rundholz pieces than any other clothes when i am transitioning from one season to another. i find them so "layer-able".

i am wearing rundholz (dip and black label). my footwear is by john fluevog.

the "what am i going to wear today delay" top

 

the other day, i was a bit late getting into work. a colleague, who was also a bit late getting into work, arriving seconds after me, asked whether, like her, i too experienced subway delays. no, i answered, i experienced the what am i going to wear today delay. a not infrequent occurrence during transition periods.

i am wearing the corfu dress, the twist top and the amazing skirt by kaliyana. my boots are the noon boot (box collection) by trippen.

the weird time begins dress and jacket




for most of the summer, i was anxious about summer ending. having suffered through a long winter and a nagging cough that appeared with the beginning of the year and wouldn't go away until well into spring, i needed a long break away from winter. every day, i pushed down the anxiety about summer ending (too soon) and strived to enjoy summer (even each and every heatwave). now that summer is almost over, for some reason, i don't feel so anxious about it ending (soon or otherwise). even the weird times that characterize the end of summer and beginning of fall, when one day can be truly chilly only to be followed by a hot day (and so on and so on), aren't bothering me. i am taking them all in stride, happily switching between summer and fall clothing on a daily basis if need be. the suspicious part of me is asking why i am so "go with the flow" all of a sudden. what happened to the anxiety about winter coming too soon? the "go with the flow" part of me is telling me to stop questioning my zen state of mind and to enjoy it. what is winning out? i don't know. but dang do i love shopping for new winter clothes!

if experimenting with white clothes has driven anything home for me it is this: that i feel sooooo comfortable in black clothes.

meteor showers top




this may be the last all white outfit for this summer. although i don't really care much for the rule of no white after labour day (other than in the sense that rules are made to be broken), for some reason, as the official end of summer draws nearer and nearer, wearing all white feels more and more foreign to me. when i embarked on the experiment of wearing all white, i thought it would be a time-limited experiment. that it would be limited to a few weeks of very hot weather in july and august. but with each new all white outfit that i wore, i never imagined that there would be a natural end to it. until all of a sudden, a natural end appeared on the horizon. i guess i know myself better than i give myself credit for.
