As much as we all hate daylight saving time, I have to say, the change of more light in the evenings really has spring pulsing through my veins!
I once saw a woman working in a train station in Toulouse, France, she was wearing skinny black jeans, and a uniform shirt similar to this, with short puffy sleeves. She had the collar popped and was wearing a classy scarf (those French women and their scarves!). I wish I’d taken a picture of her, but the image of her dressing up her otherwise boring train uniform has stayed with me.
I’ve switched her scarf for a colorful wooden beaded belt. It was a steal at $12 from Wet Seal. Although I’m afraid one day the elastic will die and the wooden beads will go skittering around the floor, to great embarrassment. Well, until then, I’m enjoying this find that looks very well-traveled – as if I found it languishing in a market stall in Bali.
