Halo, everyone. This is my outfit few days ago. All about light, airy, floral pattern mix and rough texture for summer day with breeze. If you google "shabby chic garden", this look is pretty much like it, but if you google "shabby chic outfit", it's not quite alike :-). Every garment I wear in this look is comfortable, laid back yet totally functional. My imaginary mood board brings my self back to Dries Van Noten and Anna Sui collection in the 80s/90s (my childhood to teens), mixed with classic expedition, adventure, treasure hunter movie like The Indiana Jones. I always love this kind of style. Though when sometimes I think I am bored with it, every time I am browsing or window shopping or thrifting I'm always attracted to pieces in this style.
I bought the canvas bag in flea market for 1 Euro, I forget where it was. The hem is frayed, it even features a cigarette hole that it looks somehow "ugly" cool and strengthens the theme.
The sneakers were given by my sisters. They belonged to her. The color is already dull uneven that they look worn out but cool too. Somehow! Anyway, the soles and inner part are in a very good condition.
At another time I pair the same outfit with different shoes which were a pair of sling-back kitten heels I bought in annual charity market in our small town. I think they made my look looks heavier on top.
I would like my tunic smaller and my pants more tapered and have shorter legs so the look would be less floppy but I've count on my confidence hehehe. My tunic is indeed oversize, not made to be oversize, as well as the pants, except that they fit on the waist and upper hips.The pants' fabric is easily wrinkled, but would be smoother after few minutes wearing (minus the sitting marks).
Tomorrow would be the first day of the apartment's heating to start on. It's getting colder because lately, one hot summer day followed by bad weather days in a row afterwards. This outfit has been thrown in the laundry and I would need my jacket all the time. How is it in your country? I wish you a nice weather and a super inspiring day!
