Imagine this in darker, wintery colors. Like... a deep brown, almost plum-hue to it.
And paired with the most lovely lavendar shirt.
Worn by a man in his early 40's, I'd hazard. Standing on the street corner, looking as if he had not a care in the world.
And I just smiled.
I was thinking how ridiculous it is that fashion can be an instant upper -- but really. It caught me off guard because.. gosh, it was just so fashion-forward (or, at least adventurous!), and ... I don't know, maybe I was admiring that confidence to try something so not-the-usual around here? And this whole seasonal concept -- I mean, clearly the color wouldn't have worked in the summer or spring. And, I'm not exactly a fashion maven (is that somebody who knows lots about fashion?), but I like to think I'm at least with it or close to that, or something. but, um I'm still mostly wearing the same things I wore in the summer (less pastels, but still...), and there was this *guy* who was clearly conscious of this whole other (fashion) world, like I want to be!
Anyway. I liked it. It made me smile. And temporarily distracted from terrible post office experience that I do not even want to go into. Except Sis, you better not give me any grief about this very nice thing that I have done for you. Because all I can say is grrrr.
A-hem. Here's to a lovely afternoon. Heart of Light looks to be setting up a lovely week of non-stress holiday postings -- what a delightful idea! This made my day start out well, but, hmm. Maybe I should do a similar thankful/cheer post in the afternoon, as I'm working on 80 bajillion projects + feel the stress coming on :D I know -- Self, you are already too busy, why would adding on one more thing to your plate be good for you? Because -- yummy things make you feel better, no matter what :)
