I find dressing for summer somewhat harder than for spring and fall, and I also find myself wearing things I wouldn't during the rest of the year, like these Etoile pants. First, printed pants is something I normally wouldn't look for and second, they're like pyjama pants! I guess my subconscious inner bohemian takes advantage of the situation. I'm also wearing an Etoile tee and my new Opening Ceremony sandals.

I recently found some bracelets on Etsy (the ones to the right) here, here with a bracelet in silver and gold from Be Christiansen.

Do you also walk out the door wearing pyjama pants, or something else you normally wouldn't wear, during summer?
P.S Sorry for being such a bad blogger, but I have a feeling I won't be posting much in the nearest feature. I just don't have the energy or the inspiration right now. I still love reading your blogs, though!

On the list #1 and some off the list shopping

With lots of help from S at Mommystyle I've been able to get my hands on something I've been looking for for a long time - a black blazer. It's was #1 on my 2011 wishlist. I blame this picture from Lagarconne for my obsession with it :
Perfection! I have the pants and the tee, and the blazer (Helmut Lang) is just what I've been looking for. Obviously the outfit doesn't look like that on me! However, the blazer looks good with skinny jeans as well as slouchy pants, and can easily be dressed down. I can't let go of the Hope boots in the photo either. My black Hope boots work with skinny pants, but not with slouchy pants. I've become more of a pants person lately, so these would be perfect. If I decide to get them I'd have to sell my Hope Charlie lace up boots, even though I love them.  The dilemmas! Here it is with IM boots, J Brand jeans and an Etoile linen tee.

I also got the Opening Ceremony sandals I've liked for a long time, at a 70% discount. They're black leather instead of the beige suede ones I think are prettier, but they're still really nice.

Finally, some stores already got a few fall items. I'm not quite ready for fall yet, but I'm such a sucker for fall clothes, it's my favourite time of the year when it comes to dressing. I haven't been tempted by a whole lot, but I couldn't resist this Isabel Marant Etoile linen tee in indigo - such a beautiful colour. Etoile linen tees drape beautifully and so far I find the quality really good.

I'm quite happy with my wardrobe now, so I'll try to be restrictive when it comes to fall purchases. Knits and boots are my weaknesses, and I'm guessing I'll see lots of that soon. It'll be a challange!

The past few weeks have been the most exhausting weeks of my life. I'm glad that it's over, and at the same time sad. I hope that we'll be able to stop by the house sometimes and have a look at the cherry tree we've planted in the garden for my daughter.
I did have a really nice break at the festival, though. I really needed it. It was wonderful as always - great people, sunny weather and good music -  listen to this girl, from a completely different occation:
She was amazing. I didn't get a lot of pictures, but here are a few:

This is where we stayed.

Now I have to catch up on my blog list!
