To Bare Arms


Top? Vintage, thrifted (exact one in white or similar in mint) Silk skirt? Vintage Alfred Sung
Shoes? French Connection Clutch? Thrifted (similar here Bracelets? Vintage and made from vintage

It's that time of year when I start looking at the calendar and mentally noting how many weeks I have left for both bare arms and bare legs. I will (obviously) push bare legs as far as I can but the freedom of having these bare appendages without also putting on a brave face is limited. 
And since we are way too close to September for my liking, I don't want to waste any warm days we still have left. I love blazers, heaps of crunchy leaves and well, that's it really, but I can wait a little while longer for either of those... Right now I will exercise my right to bare arms. 
Eh... that was weak. But when you are wearing a sweet sequin vest and a silk scarf style skirt, the written portion of a blog post is really not that important. I hope...

Your writing is excellent and I always look forward to the text. This post did not disappoint. The sequence is good too :)

p.s. here in South Africa, September means Spring - so we get to bare our arms (finally!).

I am IN. LOVE. with this Also, you are getting really good at mastering the side slit skirt picture!

On a sequined note, a few weeks ago I found a vintage pleated satin maxi skirt at Goodwill that was covered from waist to floor in colorful sequins. All I could think was "Jentine would be going crazy with glee! And Jentine would know how to wear it."

Also, your writing is amazing! I was just telling my bloggy partner about your writing this week and talking about how it has inspired me to inject more personality into the posts that I write.

I think this is one of my favorite outfits of yours! I love how the stop and scarf skirt work together. Having amazing legs helps, too. (ow ow!)

Arm-baring season lasts until October or November in Texas. I am not pushing autumn right now because I still want to wear skirts, for as long as possible. I love this outfit of yours -- so fabulous.

That top is fabulous. But then again, I'm like a magpie, I always love anything that sparkles.

That first photo is just stunning. Isn't it funny how in April we get excited for "warm" weather, but come September the same temps have us piling on the sweaters and scarves?!
