hello, wednesday! another day, another cloud here in athens. but boy-oh-boy does our landscape look lush and green. and the flowers are blooming away. it’s a veritable feast for the deer that roam our neighborhood. not that i mind sharing a bud here and there. but when i walk outside and don’t recognize a once flourishing hibiscus that’s been stripped right down to the bare nubbins. i’m a little peeved. plus, it appears they like to snack on cilantro as there wasn’t a single stalk remaining in their clay pot. oh, deer! so i’m putting on a brave face, hauling a few plants closer to the house, and slipping into a cheerful outfit.
and who wouldn’t smile when yellow is introduced into the mix. it looks smashing with so many colors, but today it’s taking its cue from mother nature. think bees. or more to the point bumble bees that happily buzz from flower to flower this time of year. it’s a sight for sore eyes to watch flora and fauna in motion come summer. (except for the occasional misunderstanding with the deer) mr. style and i love to sit on the patio this time of year and silently observe the birds and the bees and the flowers and the trees and the moon up above. it truly is a glorious thing to view.
but back to my ootd which is pure sunshine with a yellow cardi and paisley pants. there’s a subtle pattern mix introduced with a striped shirt which tones down the outfit. metallic sandals and belt also lend subtle sophistication. i noticed it’s been quite some time since my tried and true pearls were put into the mix. so it’s high time to give them a whirl. all-in-all i think this outfit is ready to greet the day. rain or shine.
happy hump day ladies!
