I must go down to the seas again, to the lonely sea and the sky
And all I ask is a tall ship and a star to steer her by…

This week’s color for the challenge is jade. I think of the stone: mysterious and cool to the touch, reminiscent of the East, warm spiced air and women with mystery in their eyes.

I spent a lot of time at Chic Management’s first birthday event because there were so many fabulous things to buy! This little summer dress by Peqe comes in a variety of colors (yes, I chose the blue, as I do way too frequently) but I’m tempted to go back and get them all!
I don’t know if this happens to everyone, or just women, or just me, but certain outfits and/or items of clothing remain inextricably linked to memories of significant events. For example, there’s a particular black lacy item in my lingerie drawer that I no longer wear, and yet am unable to discard. I wore it one special day, and every time I see it, I have to catch my breath as memories of that day come flooding back. I remember the other things I wore that day too. And how I almost didn’t want to wash them because they’d picked up his scent: subtle cologne, and sea air and something indefinably him.
Today was significant too, though for other reasons. And this is what I was wearing today.

She’s wearing a beautiful blue dress, and she’s got the candles lit, but it appears that she’s alone. She’s thinking of someone far, far away, and wishing he was here. Maybe one day he’ll get on a plane and come to her. She knows she’s in his thoughts, as he is in hers. And for now, that’ll have to do.
