As part of our continuing discussion of transitioning between seasons — which could easily turn into a lifelong conversation — I suggest that we take a page from the French, and wear white denim deeper into the year. At least into September.
How can this be done?
With closed toe shoes and something darker on top, bien sur.
These cut-out brogues may be just perfect for late spring and early fall.
Truthfully, though, I might have worn black penny loafers, but mine are still down in the storage room, fraternizing with the Christmas decorations. I’ll probably retrieve them next weekend.
I told you that I was going to wear this blouse with everything, and I am fulfilling that promise.
Here, I am wearing it with a lightweight cashmere shell. Can you imagine how elegant the blouse will be under a sleeveless black dress with boots?
This blouse has lovely details: the tie neck (visible above), fluted cuffs (at right), and a graceful split hem (below).
I’ll experiment and let you know.
