The last days of summer, WIWT Aug 16, 2013

We are rapidly approaching autumn here at 63˚N, with the trees slowly starting to turn red and yellow and the temperatures regularly dipping into the low 10s over night. Still, the sun is warm during the day and I am trying to squeeze a few more days out of my summer cloths before they are put away for this year. There will be enough time for tweeds and flannel in only a few weeks, so there is no need to rush into autumn just yet.

I am usually not very fond of light ties with darker shirts, or at least I find it to be a look that is very hard to pull off well. I recently got this royal blue shirt from my shirtmaker and I had originally intended to use it more casually, without ties. But today I decided to try it out with a lighter tie, just to challenge myself to wear combinations I am not normally used to wearing. Because of the rather bright colour of the shirt and tie, I decided to go with muted colours of tan and white for the rest of the outfit. I’m actually kind of pleased with the look and I think it turned out far better that I thought it would. Sometimes it good to push you boundaries, I guess.

Found this photo from last summer on my phone’s camera roll. Reminds me of of much I long for sitting at a restaurant during the bright summer evenings we have up here, with some friends, a good meal and a nice glass of wine. Only a few weeks away now….
