To relate this to my outfit...I wore this on the 1st April... and I know: April Fool's Day. The date couldn't have been more of a coincidence as I sincerely believe that April comes like an idiot, babbling, and strewing flowers. I believe that one of the gifts of life is the changing of the weather and the seasons. April does seem to enter "like an idiot" sometimes... a playful, energetic, sparkling idiot that brings in riots...riots of flowers Summer gives us longer days to enjoy and a time for laziness, if we accept the offers of summer. I think I wanted to portray that acceptance with this outfit which is a tangerine and white ensemble, made more playful and casual by the pretty blue floral blue and white blazer I added on. Summer is all about being colorful and bright and shiny, thus the ensemble. I believe that in living with the seasons, we receive many gifts. Accepting nature's gift of the seasons is like opening brightly colored packages, loosely tied with crinkled ribbons. Just like the seasons, we find the circumstances of our lives having the ability to change. It doesn't very happen too often, but when it does, it's almost always right. Sometimes, it takes opening up to new people and letting them in. Most of the time, it takes just one resolution to something you have been trying to get right all this time. Sometimes, it takes just one person who is truly afraid to show what they feel to finally getting the justice they never thought possible. (Ehem, that's me!) And then some things never change. But the end of each season signals in the beginning of a new one... so we find ourselves looking to the future...But you can't deny that there's something in the air that brings out the true colors in everyone...that's for sure.
