I’ve been using the hot, hot weather as an excuse to cycle through my wardrobe and accessories more frequently. It’s been so humid that one has to change several times a day, after all.
Summer is also a time for short, overnight trips. Here’s a picture of my vintage vinyl Adidas bag en route to visit my mother. My closet is largely made up of things I wanted when I was younger but could not afford or was not allowed to have. Like this vinyl Adidas bag. All the boys had to have one in high school and I wanted one too.
Hot weather also means I can wear cool cotton dresses like this blue embroidered Mexican Huipl (although I’ve reached the stage in my life that I don’t feel comfortable enough wearing it without a slip, which sort of defeats the purpose of wearing it to feel cool and breezy). And it looks so good with my embroidered blue Justin cowboy boots.
But back to red. I found this Marni x H&M stretch bracelet at the Value Village in Etobicoke. It’s pretty rad, right?
And finally, I snapped this image on the subway car. What a great hot weather combo! Going back to the theme of nostalgia, my favourite shoes were a pair of red clogs. Which means I love red shoes the best of all. I am forever shopping for my imaginary childhood.
