Daily inspiration, A. McQueen

Skulls have been in vogue for quite sometime, be it in clothes, furniture or jewellery, not to mention tattoos. One can think whatever about it but it is enough to attract the crowd. I’m obviously fascinated by people’s liking & taste. Fascinated in a positive way, that is. I can stretch myself to like this combination – leather jacket in black with matching scarf with precisely these fashionable skulls.

I often use blouses & especially white ones. They are perfect to jeans, black trousers, chinos, skirts etc. I like to wear them as they are or under a sweater. Blouse or shirt, an essential part of my wardrobe. There are few things that looks as good as a simple white blouse with collar, or without too, for that matter. It’s the simplicity with this garment that makes it fit with everything. It’s easy to combine with all types of clothes no matter which colour you use them with.

I prefer white of course, white blouses together with black, beige, grey & white too. And that’s what you will find here today, unfortunately – only blouses in white combined with white or black.

That’s what I am wearing now, a white blouse & jeans, on the way to Sydney harbour to see hundreds of warships on visit in the harbour. It’s some kind of celebration & the night will end with a great fireworks. By that time, I will be in my bed ready for an early workday tomorrow.

Stripes are always stylish & adds flair. They never go out of date.

Daily inspiration, blazer

The blazer is the perfect garment that works to most clothing. It’s easy to dress formally but not too strict as well as to dress casual with jeans or chinos. This is such a nice combination with white blouse & thin beige sweater.

Layer upon layer

The other day on the beach … a lady arrived rather heavily dressed, covering herself from the sun. Well, it’s impossible to stay like that in the heat. So she started taking of her BIG scarf, then her blouse & her t-shirt. Then she took off her sun hat following with shoes & her socks. And for every layer she took off, she then smeared on a layer of sun cream. This took a long while for her to do. She was fully occupied, that by the time she was finished, she went on with the parasol to get it attached in the sand.

To do that, she started to put on her clothes, layer by layer until she completed the procedure with her sun hat. Again, just to keep away from the sun. Well, once she got that done, she sat down to finally enjoy the heat. But it only took her a short while to change her mind. So up again, on with each piece, socks, shoes, sun hat, sun glasses & her big scarf & she went off …  just to walk, not more then 20 meters to the coffee shop in the corner. I stopped watching by that time so you will unfortunately not know how this story ended. I guess she went back with her – whatever she bought – to start all over again with all her garments. Just to find out that she needed to visit the bathroom. And here we go agin…

It got me thinking anyway. But not so much that I had to blog about people or behaviours but more so about layers.
