I'm Solar-Powered



When my cousins saw me wearing this outfit, they started laughing. My response was something like, "Hey, you wear weird clothes too, do you want me to laugh at you?" I'm so very nice. Really, when I got dressed, I thought I had a different look that what I usually go for. I consider this Rachel-ish Bohemian, inspired by people like Lizzy and Carolynn.
 
 
The day I wore this outfit was a very sunny one. As evidenced by the fact that my skirt and shoes are glowing. Dead giveaway that the sun was shining.

There's just something about sunny days. I don't think it would be accurate to say that I like them. More like--I feel most alive on sunny days. On a gloomy, rainy day, I feel the need to take frequent naps. My multiple craft projects have no appeal to me--and if I've got to cook dinner, it's going to be an easy one. To me, rainy, chilly, days are appropriate for movies and popcorn--occasionally they're appropriate to going to work. Because you have to do something to make the rainy day go by, and clocking hours may well be the way to do it.

Sunny days on the other hand--I jump out of bed bright and early, my body already sensing the sunshine filtering into my room. My mind is going a million miles a minute, planning and scheming how to accomplish the maximum amount of activities in the minimum amount of time. There is no stopping me till the sun goes down.

Safe to say, I'm solar-powered. And it's probably a good thing I don't live in one of those regions where they never get sun. Actually, between the constant switching between rain and sun where we live, I really end up being a person of average energy. Nothing to worry about.

  1. Love the outfit! I think I'm solar powered too. Last night it rained like crazy--I spent the day indoors watching old James Stewart movies and cooking chicken tortilla soup in the crockpot.

  3. I love how cute and curly your hair is :P and I do like your outfit. The belt is awesome and I love the top! You are adorable. And your shoes are glowing!!

    I like sunny days too--but I think I'm productive more on rainy ones, because I tend to just stay inside!

  4. We need more sunshine around here - maybe you could pop by and make things brighter with your ensemble. :) Your cousins may have laughed, but I think it's great.

  9. A girl who thinks outside the box, my kind of girl. We just got a notice from our organization of the appropriate way of dressing, etc. I don't like business suits and you will not find me in one. They are so unattractive and dull (to me that is). I love color and wearing color it adds brightness to an ordinarily dull, cloudy day.(I'm not totally against black by the way :) )

  12. I feel the same way about the sun. I'm a lot more energized and productive when the sun is out.

  13. I totally agree with your sunny/gloomy day thing. I love to write on rainy/gloomy days. Like you said popcorn movie and I don't want to be far from bed. Sunny days as long as I can't feel the humidity making my hair grow larger I'm in a pretty chipper mood. I love that outfit on you, of course you are about 1 of 2 people who could pull it off!
