Back to School
It’s been a pretty good summer. Not too hectic work wise. Got to spend some time with family and friends. Got to go swimming. Spent two whole days without wearing shoes.
But I am looking forward to fall. I am tired of being hot and September and it’s association with the new school year always feels like a fresh start to me.
I am also looking forward to bringing out a new wardrobe. Technically, most of it is old — favourites from years and seasons past. But I did pick up a few new pieces from Joe Fresh to fill in what I felt were gaps in my closet:
1. A dress with a slightly higher neckline (taking selfies of my outfit of the day has helped me better figure out which pieces in my wardrobe work best and v-necks are not making the cut).
2. Black jeans — the last pair gave up the ghost.
3. Red striped pants. I went looking for these after I saw a woman at the Aga Kahn Museum wearing a pair of these with a white t-shirt and plaid blazer. I found these on sale at Joe Fresh for like $7.
