"Un Deux Trois Quatre!"

Is anyone else pumped about the season premiere of Mad Men?! I only started watching the series last winter; I worked my through through four seasons' worth of episodes in the course of several weeks, only to find that I would have to wait yet another year for new episodes. Luckily enough, a film student who was in one of my classes fall term spent her summer working as a production assistant on the set of the show, and she assured us that the new season was set to air in the spring. That's right, I have connections.

I can't say my outfit was exactly inspired by Mad Men, but perhaps menswear in general. I could go as far to say that it had nothing to do with the aforementioned program and it was entirely the 20 mph winds that forced me to don a pair of pants today. Sometimes I find that I don't have to energy required to remain decent when it's gusty outside, which involves a lot of shuffling as I grasp at my fluttering skirt and curse repeatedly under my breath. I also felt vaguely European as I sipped on a cup of espresso and nibbled on a croissant in a striped top. I'm  well aware that this is most likely not how the average European spends their afternoon and that it is no more than just some caricature I've assembled based on various images and stereotypical portrayals...  
None of that has kept me from speaking in my terrible French accent. Adieu.

  1. LOL! You are so funny. I'm glad you admitted that stereotype because I imagine the same thing! And it's probably so far from the truth that any Europeans reading this right now are probably rolling their eyes at me. Haha!

    Love the striped top and those pants are really cool! They kind of remind me of the AA disco pants, but without the sheen. Gorgeous pashmina too! And thanks always for your sweet comments. I know you're busy and can't post often, but I'll always be a loyal reader. :) <3
