Patriarch

Patriarch2

Another week, another color for Luna Jubilee’s 52 Weeks of Color Challenge. This week’s color is named ‘patriarch,’ which is a new one for me. I know the word; just, have never heard it applied to a color. I suppose the name derives from the royal purple, the purple of kings and popes and emperors. The color is so rich and deep with its combination of heat and chill, that only a gown would do.

Sunshine Girl

SunsineGirl

I’ve always had slightly mixed feelings about summer. So much to love about it: the long days, the healing power of sunshine, and those wonderful three-day weekends. But summer in the city can be brutal — heat rising from the asphalt, standing on crowded subway platforms surrounded by sweaty strangers, and arriving at work nowhere near as fresh as when you left home. Then again, how great it is to wear the lightest of clothing and look forward to vacationing at the beach? I think of taking that first breath of sea air, kicking off my flip-flops and running down to the water’s edge. That moment is always magical for me. I breathe in the sea and the sky and all of a sudden I’m at peace. All troubles are forgotten. I’m pulled in and soothed and elated by the rhythms of the ocean.

Lots new this week, thanks to weekend shopping! My Fishy Strawberry ensemble is on sale at Fashionably Late — a new shopping event at Chic. The Gems & Kisses necklace was a Moody Monday special. And my platform flip-flops are brand new from Slink. In addition to all the usual prim-shoe adjustments, these allow you a choice of sole colors as well as decorative flowers and an adorable frog both of which are hide or show.
