Wardrobe Diaries: Pleats, Collars and a Haiku























I cannot believe summer only officially began today. Is it just me or does summer feel particularly long this year? Perhaps it has something to do with the constant 90+ degree weather we've been having for the past month. The best thing about summer in Tennessee are the fireflies that come out at dusk. Before I moved here I only ever read about them in children's books. They really are as enchanting as how I had imagined them to be.

Since I've been wearing my summer wardrobe for the past two months I'm definitely beginning to feel the fashion fatigue. Do you ever experience that? Where everything in stores start to blur together and look the same. Nothing feels inspiring or exciting anymore. So instead of dressing in my usual summery garb I decided to take a break from all the florals and pastels and maxis and opted for a beige and black ensemble.

How did you like my haiku in the photo above? It's a little hobby of mine, one day I will master the art and speak only in haiku all day.
