This is another one of those going-for-a-walk-after-work outfits: loose-cut linen. It’s cool and comfortable, even when the temperature is still around +25 °C at 9 pm, and you simply can’t be bothered to make an effort. Or if it’s raining and getting a bit cooler (finally!) but not really cold enough for a cardigan.
And this is one of my latest purchases: the backpack I got at the Marimekko outlet sale (which was online only this year). I bought the shoes in the same print (but with smaller flowers) two years ago, as well as a much bigger bag that I hardly ever use (because it’s too big). And I’ve been kicking myself since then for not getting the cute little backpack.
So, when I saw the backpack in the outlet sale, I decided to get it then and there. It’s just what I need for these evening walks: something to hold the camera and/or a bottle of water, and not much more.
By the way, aren’t these wild flowers beautiful? I know: they’re weeds, and they’re everywhere (here in suburbia, at least), and you probably wouldn’t want them in your own garden. Still, I find them impressive, and the colours are inspiring.
