Not many words today. I start off with some fashion seen on the street and end with pairings — shirts and shorts — that Matt and I coordinated at H&M at Plaza Mayor last week.
No hay muchas palabras hoy. Empiezo con algo de moda vista en la calle y termino con maridajes — camisas y pantalones cortos — que Matt y yo coordinamos en H&M en Plaza Mayor la semana pasada.
• Not easy to snap from three floors up and across the street (and to get a smile from the guy).
• No es fácil fotografiar desde tres pisos hacia arriba y al otro lado de la calle (y obtener una sonrisa del tipo).
• Perfect symmetry? Where?
• ¿Simetría perfecta? ¿Dónde?
• For this pairing we went understated. What could we possibly add to seed on the shirt and crabs in the shorts?
• Para este emparejamiento fuimos discretos. ¿Qué podríamos agregar a semilla (seed) en la camiseta y piojos de cangrejos en los pantalones cortos?

Well now we know where you can go shopping to blend right in. I keep seeing NY hats in Spain and France, most likely on people who have never been there and wouldn’t know a baseball game if they saw one.
Those NY baseball caps are everywhere and you’re absolutely right.
THANK HEAVENS those items STAYED on the rack!!! The only thing worst could be a pairing of , and I even shudder to say it…crocs!!!!! H&M can have some finds, but lately their selections has been more losts’..
There’s only one choice of footwear for these outfits. Imitation Crocs.
You got me this time. I could find nothing that I thought even remotely suitable! Damn!
Not even the tasteful colors of the plaid shorts and shirt on the guy in town? Or are you only talking about H&M?
Maybe that look is okay …..
Ah! I figured you’d like that. It’s kind of tastefully done.
Your H&M pairings are truly barf inducing but I am annoyed that you did not MODEL them, Mitchell.
THAT would have been fun. Matt and I missed an opportunity..
Hideous all around!
Oh, but the snakeskin shorts.
Shocking what people will actually wear these days! Jx
So strange I haven’t seen any of those H&M numbers on the street.
I never seem to see pairings around here to equal those that you share. Some of these I have to wonder, “what were they thinking??”!
I used to think they weren’t thinking at all. But I’ve learned most of these outfits on the street have been given a lot of thought.
Ready-to-wear abstract expressionism.
A very generous description.
Where’s the fashion? *smirk*
I wish I had thought of trying things on like Debra suggested.
