MARINE SUMMER LOOK: STRIPES AND BLUE
While my other blogger colleagues are already enjoying their playful combinations and interpretations of marine looks for fall, I was lucky enough to enjoy a week of summer while I was on vacation. Back in Vienna I realize that it’s about time to post that late summer outfits of mine, that I shot the past week, because fall is going to be here anytime (weather wise). What I did for this look is actually easy: I overslept. ;P
I combined two pieces that I wear a lot. A black and white striped shirt and my blue jumpsuit. To be honest, this was a 3 minute shoot while I was waiting for my cab. And also not really a well thought-out look. As usual I was sleeping longer than I should and had to get ready within ten minutes. Still, this look turned out to be one, that I really like. I like the fact that I just put two random pieces that I really love together and it turned out to be a good idea. Even though I wear these basic pieces a lot separately, I would not have thought that I like the combination of the two pieces. Guess being a sleepyhead can be a good thing from time to time.
But isn’t it exactly about things like this? Finding pieces that you would not have taken out of your closet any time soon or ever again. And out of a sudden there is something attractive to it again that you can’t describe. Months ago I thought that this striped shirt would end up as my pyjama shirt. A few weeks ago I really was sick of seeing this jumpsuit I was wearing three months non-stop because it was light enough to survive summer. Plus I would never have thought that I would enjoy the marine summer look /sailor summer look without feeling like I’m dressed up for carnival.
