I ended the day feeling very blue. From looking at my outfit today, one might be tempted to think that I started out the day feeling very blue. But I did not. Could it be a case of the blueness of the clothing seeping into my being?
Let me move on to a topic less blue in feeling: my blue chelsea boots. I have had these blue boots for some time now. While I loved the colour of the boots immediately I saw them, I wasn't as in love with the boots themselves. I was somewhat uncomfortable with how wide the opening at the ankle was. Nonetheless, I bought them, mostly because, at the time, I was sporting nothing but 60s clothing in bright, psychedelic colours and I thought that they would fit in with my look. They sort of got lost in my closet soon after. Now, although I am no longer wearing 60s clothing in bright, psychedelic colours, I am rediscovering the boots. Part of the rediscovery has to do with a current preoccupation with Chelsea boots. And, oddly, the width of the opening at the ankle no longer bothers me. In fact, now, I love it. Funny how things work out sometimes. It makes me wonder whether "my gut", which leads me to buy things sometimes, knows me way better than my mind does.
