Summer Evening Walk

by jennine on June 27, 2008


Things I love about Summer.
… Long days, garden roses,  evening walks, lovely conversations about nothing. Bike rides in the forest. Only a 15 minute train ride from Frankfurt proper, my home feels like it’s in the countryside, and it’s felt in my style, taking a softer approach to attire. Relaxed trousers are certainly popping up as some of my favorite things to wear recently. Actually, they make me think of Paris, where I saw stylish women wearing them, including Garance (who, you can’t see from her blog, but she herself is very, very stylish, eh, can you tell I have a girl-crush?). Not that high-waist, wide-leg trousers haven’t lived in my closet… but it certainly gives me a reason to pull them out.

Channeling Rosie the Riveter

She’s awesome, so why not?

Who knew Rosie could seem so soft and flowery! This outfit really seems to combine lovely softness with strong simplicity. All that just for a walk! ;)
