thinking of summer #2

By Marlene | Published: 1. February 2012

Winter is still being an idiot. I’m still thinking of summer – and all-white outfits.

Fashion magazines try to sell this amusing idea that all-white looks especially great in winter. Sure – for the five seconds it takes you to step into the street and into a puddle of sludge. Not that wearing all-white in the summer is something easily pulled-off. Put on plain trousers and a tee and you could easily end up looking like a dental technician. Go for a long shirt and blouse and suddenly you’re on Ibiza in the 70s.

The way to do it is like Emily Weiss: a crisp pair of jeans, an interesting top (her shirt is cut longer in the back than the front, the fabric is just on the right side of sheer), paired with contrasting accessories and an old school pair of aviators. Perfect.

P.S. Emily’s blog Into the Gloss is one of my favourites. But be warned: once you start reading, suddenly half the day will be gone. And you’ll want to buy A LOT of beauty products.

      Ich weiß schon, wem ich die Schuld dafür geben kann, dass sich der Badezimmerschrank vor lauter Neuanschaffungen fast nicht mehr schließen lässt. Brauche ich wirklich die fünfte Mascara? Natürlich!
