Hello Readers! A few days ago as I was readying myself for a long weekend away for the holiday, I was feeling a bit melanchonic and travel weary: City Verses Country- hmm. I have been back and forth, from city to country, for many months, and while I so enjoy and appreciate the luxury...sometimes I do feel uprooted. I am a homebody at heart:
This particular day I was watching videos of our family and seeing my children from twenty years ago was such a bittersweet experience. Also, I have lost many family members recently and seeing them alive and well on my television set did send a jolt of happiness, with a heavy, forelorn chaser. I am posting this pic of me taken the same day of my Fourth of July post, so you may recognize the Celine bag, 6PM shoes, Joe Fresh shorts, and fedora. It was a bit later so I wore a vintage silk Celine print shirt, and I also wore my Dolce and Gabbana shades. I think you will agree the photo delivers a completely different vibe:
The mis-matched outfit ( which i think works- i love to add some edge by a bit of clash) most certainly reflects my inner mood. The photo came out faded, and I could have fixed that, but again, it reflected my mood of feeling a bit less of myself. This makes me wonder, too, what subconscious elements are at play when we choose our daily outfits. So I am going to pose that question to you, dear readers, and i look forward to your responses.
Now, no worries, I am happily settled in the country. The Long Island sun is shining, the beaches and bays are pristine and my adult children and hubby are having a great time; so all is well. Still, I hope you will respond to the question above? How does your mood affect your choice of outfits?:
