It seems we moved from high summer to deep fall in a span of a single week: it started with 30C and ended with 13C including a major thunderstorm in between!
I was trying to get more wear out of my summer clothing this week because in Canada you can never tell how soon the summer ends! Now looking at all pictures together I think I had a theme of strong graphic b/w pattern going for the most of the week

Trying to squeeze last wears out of my white wide leg trousers: both fabrication and low hems make them warm season trousers only for me. I think volume on volume is not everybody's cup of tea but I quite liked this.

Striped blouse - Suzy Shier
Bone slingbacks - Ros Hommerson
Silver tote - Danier

Another summer piece I am trying to get more wear of - my new striped VC skirt. This time I wore it with a bright silk shirt. It has hi-low hem and I wanted to wear it untucked but unfortunately I realized that the front ends were quite wrinkled from the previous semi-tuck - and no time to iron. I decided to tie the ends in front to save the day!

Another scorching day so unlined cotton skirt and a silk "sweatshirt" felt just right. After the eye searing orange of the day before calm dark blue felt just right.

I feel it was a skirt week as I am wearing third skirt in a row. This shirt is one of the few ink blue items I have. Unfortunately it is also summer only piece because the sleeves are 3/4 and the fabric is really thin but I love the color!

As usual all comments and suggestions are welcome. Unfortunately I have to work this weekend so it may be a "post and run" for a while
I hope at least all of you have a nice and restful weekend!
