Hello lovelies! How is this November looking like for you? Here we are in the middle of what our weather folks call “Saint Martins summer”, not the most scientific name out there, right? I think it would make more sense to everyone if I just use the most well-known term “Indian Summer” or… even better, should I name it “perfect summer”? It is when autumn feels like summer, a little chillier, just the perfect amount of heat but still being able to enjoy all autumn goodness with its colors and leaves.
One of my secret goals for this year was to add pieces to my wardrobe that were at the same time basic pieces, fitted me good but made me step out of my comfort zone. That’s why a few days ago I purchased this (fake) leather jacket, my first ever… can you believe it? Well, I’m not the super rocker girl (at least in aesthetics, I’m rocker at heart!) but when I saw the jacket hanging in the store I knew that for that price I had to at least try it on, for my surprise I felt so good in it! I think my (random) thoughts went immediately to Grease, and I sang to my new jacket “you’re the one that I want” (sing it with Olivia Newton-John’s voice, and add a uuuhuuhuuu at the end).
A few months ago we precisely went to a special screening of Grease at a movie theater full of devouted fans, it was so much fun to revive all the songs, the pink ladies, the boys and all the leather and glorious 60s looks and dinners. I think I now need to watch it again at home with my new leather outfit, I will feel more on tune! Have you been able to revive any classic movie on a big screen? It is wonderful, isn’t it?
Let’s cross fingers we are able to enjoy this Indian summer for a little longer, there is plenty time for winter to come, don’t rush yourself weather!
