Capsule wardrobe #102 - FSH inspiration, warm neutrals

The beautiful color combinations of Hermès' current displays were a joy to capture and admire, and back home, they inspired some summery capsule wardrobe looks. Starting off with warm neutrals in beige, camel and white.



Capsule pieces: white jeans, camel top and a beige wrap
Shoes: camel loafers
Accessories: Hermès 'Chaînes et Gourmettes' 70 Carré, Elephant and Torana printed enamel bracelets and Isthme horn pendant
Scarf tying method: fold your scarf into a triangle and tie the ends together behind your neck (either into a small double knot, or with a petite scarf ring in the basic slide)





Have a wonderful remaining week everyone xx

  2. Dearest MaiTai

    Your combination of warm neutrals couldn't be more perfect!!!! I do like your wrap. It's such a warm beige. This look is one of my favourites. So elegant, so fresh <3
    Got inspired to try it with my Croquis Champs de Cours in white and black though I think grey, beige and white are the perfect match.
    Thank you, my dear, for this beautiful post. A wonderful remaining week to you too, M xx

  4. Dear MT. There are my favourite colours may be with black for winter and grey and brown.
    I absolutely have to find these long cardigans that you wear a lot. My problem as you know I made a fixation to order by internet I dont want to give my credit card... Old fashion and order to France to Sw it make more expensive with the sending and complicate to go to France to return.
    Anyway you have choosef and arranged your ensemble perfectly and of course you have the taille mannequin in French, so thin...
    Warmly.

    1. Love black, grey and brown in winter too! It is true, I wear these cardies a lot..they are so easy, and very comfortalbe and flattering(!). The beige wrap above came from Mango, but I have also found great ones at Comptoir des Cotoniers, 1,2,3..., H&M, Gerard Darel.. to name just a few non-online options. Good luck! Amitiés

  9. Oh this is wonderful! I have really been loving my white jeans this year and though it is way too hot in NYC right now to even think of tying on a scarf, I will keep this look in mind when it cools off. You look lovely in pale neutrals! XO, Jill

    1. White jeans are a summer staple of mine too :-) You could always wear them with a scarf tied as a belt while it’s still hot. Enjoy a great weekend x

    1. The enamels are such long time friends, so happy you like them too. I have not worn the CetG for some time, but fell in love with it all over again. Wouldn't it be wonderful so it re-issued issued in a larger format one day? Have a fabulous weekend xx
