As I’ve mentioned before, just because it’s summer, doesn’t mean I stop wearing the darker colours I prefer all the time. And on a rainy, overcast day here in Hong Kong, these colours feel more appropriate somehow (because summer is the rainy season here). I was never a fan of wearing ballet flats with jeans, especially skinny ones, for a long time, since I thought they made the tops of my legs look bigger, but when the weather is warm, it’s much more comfortable to wear light shoes like this. This is also the sort of outfit I wear to work on Saturdays, when there’s no kids and we don’t have to wear dresses. It’s very simple to throw on jeans and a t-shirt, but with a fitted top like this one, and some small jewellery, it looks much smarter and more stylish.
