It was one of those delightfully sunny early fall days. Sitting at the balcony during midday the sun felt burning hot and you could almost fool yourself into believing it was still summer. But when walking outside, the air was chilly, so this is what I chose to wear.
I made this blue cardigan a couple of years ago, as well as a pair of 1930’s/40’s inspired high waisted slacks with side buttons and cuffs. Later I made a detachable bow out of the same fabric as the trousers. All seen together in the last picture. The knitted skirt is from this set and I’m wearing a thrifted modern cardigan around my shoulders. I found those navy blue suede shoes in July at an outdoors flea market and couldn’t believe my luck as they were my size. They are Finnish made, in pristine condition, hardly worn. There is a stamp inside indicating they were possibly made in the year 1935. The round 30’s shades I bought from Stockholm last summer.
