blue striped skies.



I got this shirt while thrifting with Ella and Sadie in Paris. It kind of looks like the sky today. Blue skies are back for a while, and aeroplanes are making stripes across the sky. My vintage yellow shorts can be the sun.

Speaking of this weather - is it actually being summer now that it's September? I had my first outdoor swim of the year yesterday! SO WEIRD AND WRONG. Was lovely though. I walked home damp and barefooted.

I very messily cut the poofy sleeves off this shirt the other day and fell in love. The collar is so cute, pointing out on the shoulders and at the back. I think this may have been a child's shirt, as it was quite tight around the bust, but a little tip for that is to just cut lower at the armpits! Loads of boob room now!

This shirt is nice and thin for a summery day like today, but I'm sure I'm going to get a lot more wear out of it as it gets colder - I'm imagining wearing it with my high-waisted burgundy trousers and a big cosy cardigan.
