    1. Your "Photo Finifh" has a beautiful color shades and it goes with the oatmeal spring color cordinate. The stripes give sporty impressions too. It perfectly matches with your Blue de Prusse Bolide! I have Photo Finish in fuchsia, orange, jaune by chance. It gets hot and humid in summer in my country and it is not comfortable to waer a scarf around neck. So, perhaps I will pass it through the belt loops of my pants. Mine goes with my Tosca Bolide.

      My fovorites in 2013SS are "Photo Finifh" and "Le Mors a la Conetable" in anthracite,argile,rose poudre.(looks like grey,white,pink) How about you?

      I always love your blog.

    2. CSW, have fun pondering and deciding! Please come back and tell me which one you went for.

    3. Dear erika, so nice to be cousins on the Photo Finish! The CW you have sounds beautiful, and I can imagine how fabulous it is in combiantion with your Tosca Bolide. You might like to try the 'Collier knot' or 'Drape' knot..they are great for hot and humid weather too, as the scarf barely touches the skin. And I have yet to see the LMALC!

    1. N'inquiétez pas, ma chère Monica, j'ai possède aucun pair de chaussettes blanches! En fait, je suis sorti avec les pieds nus, mais la photo a été pris avec très peu de lumière (on est été en train d'aller au dîner). Les pieds sont moins blanches en realité, mais quand même besoin quelques rayons de soleil!

  6. I love the colourway and the combination of jeans and elegance. And I do think oatmeal is a blessing - it always enhances a woman's complexion. Lovely, Mai Tai. Thank you for this capsule.

  7. Fantastic choice, especially with jeans. I went with Galop Chromatique for my most recent acquisition, in Mauve, cocoa, aubergine...I love it with a white shirt and an oatmeal cardi that I also have. (great minds think alike!)
    Thank you for always brightening my day with your posts, and have a glorious weekend!

    2. Chère MaiTai, je lis votre blog depuis deux ans. C'est une bouffée d'oxygène à chaque fois.
      Votre blog est merveilleux, bien fait, décontracté. J'aime beaucoup votre mélange Hermès avec des pièces comme Zara ou Momop ! Je m'habille comme çà depuis des années. De belles pièces ( carrés, châles, sacs... etc, venant de notre maison préférée ) avec des vêtements achetés pour trois fois rien, mais chics !
      Merci beaucoup et continuez ainsi.

      Bon we

  13. Bonjour tout le monde, pour information, j'ai pu me procurer ce foulard (coloris 04 étoupe/vert/marron) auprès de la boutique Hermes de Toulouse qui me l'expédie par la Poste. Je devrais le recevoir d'ici la fin de semaine.
