I have been hankering for a pair of floral shorts for a while now. Oddly, I have been scouting for a pair on Etsy rather than in "real life" stores -- an odd thing but a good sign, I think. This morning, when I was thinking about what I was going to wear today, I bopped myself on my head (you know, the thing that people do to themselves or to others in the V8 commercials while saying "I could have had a V8!"). Why did I do this? Because I realized that I had a pair of floral shorts sitting in my closet just waiting to be worn.
It didn't take me too long to figure out what to pair with these floral shorts. I picked the blouse first. The combination of the blouse and shorts alone cried out for a belt, so I selected a belt from my collection. It wasn't that hard to pick out a belt, but it did take two tries to arrive at the (more or less) low-slung way of wearing it. I picked the grey socks and boots to pick up on some grey in the shorts. I chose the blue sweater to pick up on some blue in the shorts. At the end of the day, I was quite happy with the outfit.
It occurred to me today that as a season progresses, I get more and more comfortable with dressing for it. While I have been dressing for the different seasons for years (and years) now, at the beginning of a new season, it is almost as if I have to learn anew how to dress for it. At first, I seem to flounder around a lot. With time, it becomes easier to dress for the season. Eventually, dressing for the season becomes second nature. At which point, a new season, with a new learning cycle, is not that far away. I wonder if this cycling through a season will ever change. I doubt it. If it hasn't changed yet, I don't think that the chances of it ever changing are so great.
Should I debut another pair of glasses on the blog? I think so. Here I am wearing my second pair of new old glasses. (Note that the frames are grey/silver.)
No new bag to enthuse about today. Truth be told, I think the bag that I enthused about yesterday I could enthuse about for a long time to come. But I will spare the blog that!
