Capsule wardrobe #10

I like wearing black all year round, and for a fresh and chic summer look, I love teaming it with white. Today throwing some red into the mix, inspired by some cheerful displays on yesterday's market. Have a great week ahead everyone! x

Capsules: black shirt and white jeans
Shoes: black suede ballet flats
Accessories: Muse belt in Rouge Garrance, necklace MT collection, black Clic enamel bracelet, black 35 Birkin
Inspiration: 'Pomme d'amour' candied apples, and grape tomatoes at Saturday's market ;-)

  2. Thank you, dear hair-mess <3 How I miss the emoticons here, a 'blushing' one would be appropriate to include here! Have a great week ahead x

  6. And I always love reading your warm and kind comments, dear booksnchocolate, so a big 'thank you' to you. Happy you like the outfit, it is almost too much of classic color combo to be true, but the jeans break it up, which I like. Have a great week ahead too <3

  7. What a fresh summer look this is with the touch of red to punch it up.
    I will copy this look as is ...just need to find the RG belt strap!The necklace looks freshly plucked from the market and IRL reminds me of the same...very yummy looking:-)
    Thank you again for your warm,personal touch to this site.
    Such a treat to stop by and see what is happening at Chez MT!
    Big hug,T

  8. Ok, that's it...I want the Mai Tai model on Looklet so I can live vicariously :)
    Super chic, I love it. The pop of colour adds texture and frames your face beautifully, it makes the black blouse less formal and summery. J'adore.

  10. Very chic. I love how you embrace wearing black. Your coloring is very close to mine and I don't feel comfortable wearing black. I've had too many image consultants that I know tell me it's not my color. Maybe I should have them take a look at your picture, you look divine!

  11. Dear Trudye, ABG, Manuela and Lulu ~ you ladies are the kindest and sweetest, thank you for your lovely comments <3

    It is such a treat to see YOU stopping by, dear Trudye. I have tried this look also with a black belt strap, and it works really well too. Have fun with your berries, and a lovely summer! <3

    I want the MT option too on looklet, dear ABG, no more changing rooms, woohoo!! I wonder when it will become reality to go for a customised virtual shopping spree. No more removing boots and endless layers of clothing in the middle of winter, just to try on a summer dress! Would leave us more time to browse at H too, lol.

    Hugs to you too, dear Manuela. Happy you like the look, which I can imagine being just fabulous on you btw! <3

    Dear Lulu, if I’d be allowed just one colour for the rest of my life, I’d choose black, as it is such an easy and chic 'color'. I see it almost as a canvas, which can easily be dressed up or down, in all seasons. I would love it if you’d give it another try, regardless of image the consultant’s opinions, as I do believe it is a color that is fabulous on everyone. Good luck! <3

  12. I am new to your blog. I found you by accident. I love all things French and scarves have been the item that I have started collecting since a trip to Paris four years ago. I have enjoyed your site all weekend and the great ideas that you have. I look forward to more.

  13. Dear MaiTai, You are truly a vision - so fresh and beautiful! Love your choices of red accents - your splendid coral necklace with many shades of red and the rich rouge garrance belt! And of course, you have a gorgeous tall and slim figure to pull it off! The 'inpiration' category is superb - it adds whole other dimension to your already amazing CW episodes. Thank you, dear MaiTai! Have a great week <3

  15. Welcome to my blog, Penny! Happy you have found us, and hope you will continue to enjoy it here. What a romantic start to collecting scarves you have had, and I hope the rest of the journey will continue in the same wonderful way. Scarf waves to you!

    I am happy that you like the ‘inspiration’ category, dear Scarf Addict, I though you might! Thank you for your sweet words re the latest style sheet. Hugs to you, and have a great week ahead <3

    Here’s to black, dear sushi queen! Thank you for your kind words, happy you like the color accents. A wonderful week to you too x

  16. MaiTai, in addition to telling you how lovely you look in black and white with red accents, I also want to thank you for all the time you put into your blog. Each post is special and I am constantly inspired by you. Thank you.

  17. I seem to live in black, even though it's sometimes difficult to wear in the heat of an Atlanta summer, but I can't help myself - I love my black! And, of course, I'm so glad to see that I have a "sister in crime."

    You look very fresh and lovely, particularly with the addition of that touch of red. I'm truly enjoying my lovely summer red beads, and they do look like wonderful ripe berries. I've received many compliments.

    I’ll be your ‘sister in crime’ anytime, my dear Jerrine!! So happy to hear that you enjoy your necklace, I can imagine Ms Berry being stunning on you. And wonderful how she came just in time, to team up with your other (totally gorgeous) new red treasure :D

    Thank you, dear dreamdoll, I thought you appreciate the red! Would be nice with a rouge garrance Picotin too, don’t you think? LOL!

  23. MaiTai - I have a new favorite. Love black as a year-round staple and have worn it for 25+ yrs. It's so easy and fresh at the same time. The addition of splashes of red is perfect. Must admit my hips don't care for white pants :-( but with your inspiration I've recently invested in a few white tops to go with the black bottoms.

    Really like the connection to the colors you are seeing at the local market. Thanks for another great post!!

  24. MT, absolutely, an RG picotin would be just perfect!! Teehee =)

  26. Dear MaiTai, I hope you don't mind,I just mentioned you on my blog,as I absolutely love your blog (I found you via Faux Fuchsia) and adore seeing all your beautiful scarves and hearing about your life in France (I always planned to marry a Frenchman and live in France but instead I married a very Englishman and live in Buckinghamshire in the Uk, oh well) Best wishes Blighty

  27. She's fresh, she's so fresh, exciting....
    Though we have seen parts of this combonation already, it's a new look - again and amazing again. Love the lush berries. Yummy.

  28. Thank you for voting, dear Valencia, I am always interested in hearing which ones each favourite looks are. Great investment re the white tops, and it really does not matter which way round to wear black and white, it always looks fab. Happy you like the joie de vivre part in the style sheet, merci! <3

    Hope the H gods are lending you their ear, dear DD! ;-)

    You are too kind, dear Girl Meets Paris, merci. Hop over, and we’ll start on it together! <3

    Welcome to my blog, dear Blighty! I am honoured that you mentioned my blog on yours, and am really happy that you enjoy it here! Thank you for your lovely comment, and also for joining the readers and friends. Btw, my DH is an Englishman too, so all hope is not lost! x PS. Just checked your blog, and love it. You got me laughing out loud, merci!


    So kool, angolfa! Love that song, and humming it now in my head.. I do get a kick of getting different looks out of the 22 pieces, lets see how far we can stretch them.. if you gals don’t get bored, I’ll go on until they are all worn out and in shreds, LOL.

  29. ahhhhhhh how I lust for a birkin and a candy apple at the same time--maybe a candy apple colored birkin?

    Too good to be true!

    Thanks for sharing!
