I suppose it would be an understatement to say I own some, "strange clothes." I blame my mum-she shouldn't have let me hang around the art school with her when I was young and impressionable. Give a small child a colour wheel and access to paint and you've doomed them to a life of being unable to blend into the crowd. I always consider colour first when purchasing clothing and accessories. That's not to say I don't have my share of grey and beige, but even the neutrals eventually end up in a shocking combination of contrasting colour. Orange and grey, olive green and purple, and so on. Today's outfit isn't holding back on colour.
Blue, green, purple, red, yellow, white-this isn't a print for blending in with the masses. I've owned it for a few years, but this was my first time wearing it. Like all my best outfits, I road-tested it at the library, where everyone already knows I dress exuberantly. It was met with approval. I mean, come on-it has chili peppers all over it-if that doesn't scream, "summer party!" I don't know what does. It was 90 degrees F (32 C) and humid today, so anything keeping my arms free from the extra fabric of sleeves was going to be perfect.

Hope your Monday treated you well. I'm officially on holiday now-the syllabus for 2017-18 has been submitted to the Board of Education. Whoo hoo! I'm sleeping in until noon tomorrow.
