Whenever I feel overwhelmed by the sheer enormity of what lies ahead of me (life, passion, love, places, the thrill of the unknown) I simply (and weirdly) seek the comforts of water.
I guess when we expect and choose to see the beauty in everything, we subconsciously plan and dress for the things leading toward it. For we don’t want to pale in comparison when we encounter its magic.
Yes, those odd choices that can make fashion purists either roll their eyes or worse, cringe at the sight of a fashion faux pas, because I didn’t consult their bible first. Case in point, would a series of Ferris Wheel-like circles on my blouse bond well with the family of Quadrilaterals residing on my skirt?
They see the Gyllenhaals and Ledgers gallivanting off to their clandestine piece of the mountain while I see either Tupac Shakur or Bone Thugs-N-Harmony inviting me for a quick rendezvous at the ‘crossroads’.
But it was definitely worth a few moments of heavy breathing on my part. They say beautiful things really do take our breath away.
Summertime happiness is around the corner (my deep apologies to the incomparable Lana del Rey) and I am about to maximize my wardrobe intended for the season.
