Good morning y’all! I’m back in front of my computer after a blogging break of over two weeks. My thoughts upon nestling myself in front of my screen with a damping cup of coffee are oscillating between hoping that no one noticed my absenteeism, and hoping that you all did. I’ve missed blogging a little bit, well, insofar as that’s überhaupt possible while in a constant state of being blown away by the breathtaking sights of the French Riviera.

Those breathtaking sights, captured on lens with utmost dedication, will gradually make it to your screen in the next couple of weeks. Make sure you stay tuned! So as not to immediately kill the suspense I’ve just contrived, today’s post is still an older one, shot in Enghien, Belgium (see also this previous post shot there).

Today’s outfit is a happy marriage of two treasured but previously deemed unwearable items in my closet: 1. dungarees recalling children’s television presenters of the seventies (repelling men and women alike); 2. a smocked crop top that seemed a curious merge of the “peek-a-belly” midriff fashion of that same era and the off-the-shoulder costumes of Zorro-heroine Elena de la Vega. Each of them worthless in itself, but quite marvellous together: it’s one of those rare cases where one plus one equals three!

Unless you have other ideas of what to wear with dungarees or with a black smocked crop top like this one, I guess today’s blissful pair of garments will live happily ever after.

    Well, you ARE stubborn. As a mule. (Except for the braying.)

    O.K. I start the countdown for MY silence: 100, 99, 98, 97…

    Or a sonnet? Or a biodegradable doggy bag? Just say what you want.

    As the silence between us seems to deepen, shall I use it as a canvas on which to… well, I don’t feel like painting now, but I could explain what a haiku is.

    And please do not forget that it was dedicated to Frank and Marion Scott. (an attempt to communicate).

    By the way, the title of that poem of good old Leonard is: Summer Haiku.

    Yes, girls, I know what Leonard Cohen said:

    Silence

    and a deeper silence

    when the crickets

    hesitate

    But at least he SAID it.

    O.K. But then: what did you think? Do not tell me you didn’t think anything!

    Or did you all remain silent?

    A conversation between three sphinxes: I definitely would have liked to eavesdrop on it.

    I have been wanting to try this look for a while, but summer is over and it’s starting to get a bit too chilly for crop tops. It looks great on you!

    Dungarees look great! I was wearing them quite a lot when I was a teenage however never worn them again, maybe I should change it. Looking really pretty!

    I am so in love with this look, especially those overalls. I have a pair, but I have been looking for the perfect boyfriend style. I love how you wore it with a crop top to show some skin. It gave your outfit an edgier look. Great post!

    i’ve missed your posts(: but i’m glad that you’ve been enjoying your time in france (for some reason a small part of me feels like i got that wrong even though you said you’ve been at the french rivera??) i’m into how you combined two throwback pieces with such a classic pair of heels. the pointed toes make the whole look feel cool and modern

      I’m so glad to read that I have some faithful readers :) Yup, it’s France (the very south of it). I imagine that for people outside Europe the geographic set-up of Europe must be rather complicated. Glad that you liked my outfit! Xx
