As you have read from my previous post (if you have read it) I am currently on a look out for all things that will help me transition from summer fashion to fall fashion without making me sweat profusely.
Now leather is not the obvious choice, but leather pieces in thin material can actually add some edginess to your autumn wardrobe without jeopardizing your sweat glands :) Now don't get me wrong I am not advising you to put on a pair of leather trousers in the style of Patti Smith and Mick Jagger well not yet at least. I think it is best to stick to loose shorts and skirts. I especially like leather bottoms paired with a shirt. Check out how my friend Samia paired her leather skirt with a jeans shirt making the look girly and edgy at the same time. I am wearing my new babies with a white cut out shirt for a more boyish look.
By the way I never wear one brand head to toe, but as I was about to list the clothes I wore for this post I realized that it was all H&M. I don't go to H&M often, popping in once every 3/4 months, but when I go, I end up buying up half the store. Each piece by itself seems such a bargain, yet somehow grouped together its not all that cheap.
I have been dying to start wearing jumpers but it's too hot here, so one solution is to wear them on my terrace and when it gets too hot, run back to the respite of the aircon.
As for "moon over Mumbai", I am always searching for that perfect nail polish. I wish I could do red yet I am just too un-elegant and un-French to be able to pull it off. Taupe looks like you have yellow fungus, summer brights feel dated and it's just to early to wear dark plums, in comes the perfect grey OPI number: just like a nude with an edge. I saw it at a salon and fell in love. Now me and my Mumbai friend are inseparable (literally).
P.S. Tuesday is such an orphaned day, better than Monday but not really half way like Wednesday. I like Tuesday because whatever diet/exercise/work resolution I come up with for the week, on Tuesday it all still seems possible and achievable.
So happy Tuesday! :)
Outfit: all H&M, shoes Nine West, bag PS, watch Rolex
