I think I’m getting the hang of this summer in the city dressing.
It’s not always easy keeping your cool but when you start out the day with the right wardrobe ingredients you can make it through to the evening without losing it.
And losing it I nearly did yesterday … thanks to an “interesting” experience with our West Village apartment landlord. More on that on the blog later today but long story short, we bolted like Usain out of there and moved into a hotel.
Before all this went down we made our way downtown to visit the 9/11 Memorial site.
Try explaining what went down and why we just needed to see this site for ourselves to a seven-year-old. The story that came out of our mouths seemed to him more like something he might have seen on an episode of Transformers than a modern history lesson.
I got a bit purposeful with my clothes choice today. And I’m not talking just about coping with the heat.
I pulled out this green dress from Bella Lido* for a reason. The colour green is not one that I’ve immediately reached for until this year but when I did buy my first green garment, I was told by someone more spiritually knowledgable than me (was it you Purple Cath?) that it is a colour that balances our energies, increases love, empathy and compassion.
Seems fitting for some quiet contemplation at a site that would move even the most hardened of cynics.
Here’s the green dress on the model:
And here it is on me:
Did you know this about the colour green? Have you visited the 9/11 Memorial?
