The Bright Stripes

I love thrift-shopping and live right next to a charity shop where I am almost always lucky enough to find something nice. I've found a couple of wardrobe classics down there that I absolutely relish to wear and go through periods of wearing almost non-stop.

On my way out to lunch yesterday, I naturally stopped by and managed to snatch up this shirt for next to nothing:


It's from Finnish brand Marimekko:


Although it's a few sizes too big, the saturated, eye-popping quality of the colours prompted me to act anyway. I think I can make it work as a summer coat with rolled up sleeves and, if not, I'll simply pass it on to a friend. We'll see after I've given it a good wash and ponder.
