chambray cloth

- Maroon tights

- Black mini skirt by American Apparel

- Black ankle boots with metal detail

- Gold thimble earrings


Summer’s last hurrah, even here in the tropics. The light is different after the rain, a bit more mellow, something festive in the air. September feels fittingly elegiac when I think how I’m leaving the city in a month and that I’ll never have a home in Kolkata again. I think I’ve become quite bad at settling down, itchy itchy feet. 

Appropriate that I should be wearing this chambray tunic by Nomads Clothing, which I did to go out for ice cream and cake in the rain. As I grow older, my love for natural fibres and thoughtfully designed clothing grows with me. The clever bits of embroidery on this dress are just delightful and the fabric itself is so, so soft (so soft!) Fairtrade cotton and ethically produced (like the rest of Nomads’ range.) I want to rub my face in it all day.
