My outfit photos are usually an accurate reflection of what I wear on any given day. Sometimes, rarely though, I will add something into a photo that I didn't actually wear. I did that today. The purse didn't accompany me on my travels today. I wanted to photograph the outfit with the purse because, the last time I wore the outfit, the purse did accompany me. I liked the result, so I wanted to document it.
Today was much cooler than it has been over the past four or five days, so it was kind of odd that today, of all days, I opted to wear, what many referred to as, a very "Spring-y" suit. It's almost as if it took me four or five days to internalize the warmth and project it on my clothing choices. Which, I guess, means that my "clothing clock" isn't keeping up with reality.
On another note, today's outfit comes from a time when I was focussed on 60s outfits. I realized recently that, when I first start working with a clothing theme, it's all or nothing. Every day, every element of an outfit has to reflect the theme. Without such commitment, I don't think it's worth pursuing the theme. Once I exhaust a theme, though, I am more inclined to dabble in a variety of themes. I find this interesting.
When I arrived home tonight, there was a parcel waiting for me in my mailbox. I knew immediately what was in the parcel and I was excited to open it up. I was not disappointed. There was clothing in the parcel, but I don't want to spoil my fun by saying anything more about the clothing until I actually wear it. But, I do want to say, "Thank you Bunny and Pear! It's gorgeous! I love it and I can't wait to wear it!"
