Capsule wardrobe #103 - FSH inspiration, orange and white




Capsule pieces: white jeans and dark brown top
Shoes: dark brown ballet flats
Accessories: Hermès 'Fantaisies Indiennes' mousseline shawl, Kelly double tour bracelet in ebene, Isthme horn pendant and Picotin in etoupe
Scarf tying method: Fold the scarf in the basic bias fold. You can then place it either simply around your neck, or as shown above, secure it the drape knot method (ends left hanging down) to your top's shoulder straps (the drape knot mimimizes skin contact in warm weather, and holds your scarf securely in place.. regardless your movements)
Scarf rings: 2x Grande honey horn scarf rings


Kelly double tour bracelet in ebene with Fantaisies Indiennes GM mousse

I am away until the end of this month, and am posting this remotely. Hope you all have a fabulous remaining July, and looking forward to catching up with you in August xx

  1. So, elegant, lovely, and everyday chic. I love this ensemble, dearest MaiTai! I just bought my first new-to-me mousseline. Sigh...they're like being wrapped in silk clouds. Okay, so I'm off to try the drape knot method, because even in my area of the world, the days are getting hot.

    Warm orange hugs, dear.
