I have a friend who wrote a book years ago titled Little House on the Freeway! Though it was perhaps over twenty years back, I think the fast paced, freeway lifestyle has only morphed into a Little House on the Race Track!
Everyone around me always seems to be in a hurry. I am more aware of it in education…parents want to push their younger children to work harder, take more advanced placement classes, be in several extra- curricular activities….race, race, race…the goal is to win places in top colleges. Some students do well under pressure…others, shut down.
Somehow, I grew up taking time to appreciate the beauty of nature and I still do this today. I love to point out to friends and loved ones, in the midst of the rat race, a glorious sunrise; a bright, big moon; the brilliant color in a landscape…and sometimes, inside of these places I discover a little fashion inspiration.
Last summer, my eye fell on these Vera Wang leggings on clearance at Kohl’s. They were a lovely, burnt orange and an even lovelier price of $7.00 (can't beat the out of season sales). Immediately, I convinced myself I had to own this color…
Took them home…
And proceeded to forget about them!!
Until, my pumpkin jarred my memory. Between the pumpkin, and a beautiful butterfly on my bushes, I was inspired to wear them with a Soft Surroundings black tunic I purchased last year….and now I have a favorite outfit!
Do you take time to notice nature around you? If not, give it a try…you just might discover a new outfit and more peaceful moments!
Have a wonderful, colorful Wednesday!!
