thematic harmony

December 27th, 2012

Do you ever feel like you’re in a certain colour mood? Almost finding yourself in a theme of dressing?

I think that recently i too often steer away from being too thematic or too “matchy matchy” – i think the reason is because i have a tendency towards dressing like that – or perhaps because we appreciate the art of mismatching our clothing these days, so much so that we feel the need to un-match ourselves. And then of course there are so many buttons going on… I almost changed before we headed out to church – and i’m glad i didn’t.

Because you know what, sometimes it really is enjoyable to see the harmony of a theme, or of closely related colours.

Isn’t it funny how often we can overthink things like getting dressed? You spend half an hour changing outfits to end up at the original items you tried on? Girls can be silly sometimes, can’t we?

So here is to not overthinking it – to matching – to pretty pinky reds – and of course, to buttons!
