i've got sunshine/on a cloudy day
It was still dark when I stepped out of the house today so I had no way of knowing that my skirt was in fact, the colour of sunshine on an actual cloudy day. This is my mother's skirt. My sister exclaimed "happy skirt!" when she saw me. Colour of any kind is an event when I wear one.
I borrowed it because I've been wanting to wear something that reminded me of my trip here. And it reminds me of trips yet taken. And walking past windows filled with brightly-coloured, hippie-type summer things that makes me think what is this beach party I haven't been invited to made me want to wear colour my way.
And what's the use of all that neutral stuff in my closet if I don't make use of its versatility and throw it together with something vibrant once in a while?
