Capsule wardrobe #152 - Paisley shirt variations

Summer has been well etablished for a few weeks now, but we haven't entered the period of full time heat yet. 

Mild and breezy days alternate with high temperatures, so scarf wearing goes from loose wraps around the neck on cooler days, to necklace style knots or belts when the temperatures rise. 

My new Paisley shirt goes happily with all these styles, as well as with some of my favorite scarves.

  1. Dearest MaiTai,

    What a lovely post!
    Your shirt is so pretty and so versatile! I got inspired and will go through my wardrobe and see how I can combine patterned shirts with scarves.
    I specially like the combination of your paisley shirt with Mr et Mme as a belt!
    Congratulations on your new anneau infinity! Both colours are lovely and I will definitely order them.
    Your new statement necklace has such a lovely colour for Summer! Thank you so much for keeping on creating new items for us. Have a most wonderful weekend!

  2. Dearest MaiTai,

    Your paisley blouse is so versatile, I would never have guessed. You look so pretty in all your various looks.

    Congratulations on this stunner! It is so beautiful, and you can bet I put in my preorder! I'm pretty sure once the necklace arrives I will have a situation. My daughter will want to borrow it and somehow I will never see it again, only on her!

    1. The versatility of the Paisley blouse took me by surprise too, and with its friendly price-tag, is has certainly proved to be a super summer wardrobe addition!
      Thanks so much for the pre-order, so happy you like the new necklace. Hope you'll have at least equal shares with your daughter! xx

  3. Who would have thought that a patterned shirt goes so well with a patterned scarf? I would not have dared such a combination - but you, dear MaiTai, prove me wrong and pick the perfect pieces. Well.... Maybe I just don't have enough scarves?!? Thank God I know a nice shop with orange boxes:)) By the way, the new ivoire scarf ring has the exact slightly off-white shade that H uses quite often.
    Love the swimming pool Association with the turqoise summer statement necklace! You never fail to surprise us with new ideas:) Your Birthday present looks great in action!
    Schönes Wochenende,
    Katja

    1. Mixing can be such fun, and of course it's also a wonderful excuse to visit our favorite store ;-) Today it's so hot that I have a good mind to jump into that pool, and it almost tempts me to bring out a turquoise lacquered ring! Unlike as with the ivoire color, which was conceived with the 'orange palette' in mind :-) Ganz viele liebe Grüsse, und eine schöne Woche!

  7. Dear MaiTai,
    again your fantastic combinations are so stunning, together with your always so amazing photos!
    I cannot say what I adore more! The items you create are so very beautiful, I think I might order a pendant necklace in "or" as a birthday present....
    Your combo with Miss Pico is my favourite, as I am so very happy with my pico in "brique" MM. I use ist so very frequently, as it is soo versatile with your practical insert.
    Thank you so much for all your inspiration making each day so bright and each outfit a bit of a "MT-look"!
    Eine gute Woche für euch alle
    Barbara

  13. I just love the way you put pieces together to make so many different wardrobe options out of just one item! The "rocks and water" combo really speaks to me. It is summery and yet so soothing at the same time. Very excited about the new statement necklace, dearest MaiTai! I can't wait to see what colors will be available. The turquoise is beautiful. Thank you for brightening my cloudy Seattle day with this post!
    Warm aloha,

  14. I so want to live in that first picture - those shutters; that ironwork; that fabulous stone plaque and surround. Such an eye you have for a building's details. I think you might have been a fabulous architect in a former life!

    You're looking very fresh and pretty in your paisley shirt, and that new turquoise statement necklace is stunning. Congratulations on the latest additions.

    Bisous,
    Jerrine

    1. I'll move right in with you, darling Jerrine! The house was build for a chocolatier in Barcelona around 1900... sounds so romantic. But an architect, moi? More of an observer! Think of the fun we'd have in that house, and the books we'd come up with! Have a most wonderful week xx

  15. The new necklace is exquisite! And it's so practical for summer when a scarf around your neck can simply be too much. Now if you would only bring back the long gemstone necklace in jade!
