Surf's up...?

Summer. Ours is a bit of a washout don't you think? I'm not giving up just yet though! After all, it isn't officially summer in terms of meteorology. Though there's 5 days until the real summer is due...and it sounds like storms a brewin' out there...

Anyway, speaking of washout my most recent purchase is a water themed T-shirt* which I adore! I don't have one particular style, however if I feel like having a relaxed day a menswear T is the perfect solution. The super light, fine and breathable cotton makes it perfect for warmer climes. Moving on to the print - I'm sure the designers drew inspiration from, coincidentally, one of my favourite pieces of art by Hokusai**. The tips of the waves look like claws about to swoop down and swallow the rowers while Mt Fuji is looking at the scene from afar with a kind of stoicism and powerlessness. I recently found a digital print by Kozyndan*** who, it seems, were also inspired by the Japanese artist. This one doesn't looks as menacing with the cuteness of surfer bunnies! 

As for my T, these waves looks like fluffy marshmallow clouds so it feels extra comfy to wear! Teamed with a handmade necklace from Brazil, and as for bottoms - skinny black jeans? Cut-off shorts? Depends how I feel. On Field Day Festival I went for a Japanesey look and wore a navy blue silk mini skirt with pleats and a monkey print. All in all - a fine purchase!
