It is very rarely that I match clothes, but when I do, an entire universe of its own surrounds myself all of a sudden. Because it’s my kind of matching (magic, oui) and I am not even a mad hatter.
As opposed to a full head-to-toe ensemble of the same colour or print. That just might show how much of a lunatic you are and that, my friend, might be very cool. You have to be a bit crazy to be able to carry this much matching. All pink, florals, stripes. If you feel sane, though, then you have just qualified for the matching by the book looks and you, most probably, have a puppy.
With me, it’s either almost not at all or the whole thing all at once.
The joke is on us, I’m telling you. It’s the world we live in that makes us wish for a puppy, but also the world we choose to live in and actually own a puppy and hold on to our thoughts. I don’t watch stuff that makes me angry, I don’t pay attention to annoying drivers when I’m driving and listening to music I, randomly, bump into on the radio and sing like there is no tomorrow and, anyway, why help create even more drama when there’s enough already?
Everything Pharell said in a Vogue interview some time ago. Simple, nice and clean.
Why be with people and talk about not-so-special kind of nothing just because you’re scared of being alone? Doing nothing on my own, sometimes, feels more real than accompanied by the wrong kind of people. With the right people though, oh…
Anyway, this was about something else in the beginning. But don’t you see how the somethings connect in the end? Now you want a puppy, too? Our minds play by themselves or with us and we know we like to play. No matter the world. With or without the puppy.
Before wearing this, I was almost sure of wearing head-to-toe black. Black does not count. Black is like running around naked to me. Which is so cool. To me. But then all black and a black hat? I wouldn’t have made it into the streets, I’m telling you. You know when you wake up and you need a nap, but you also don’t ever nap? I can’t nap. I had to get out fast, so I needed something to wake me up.
The coffee didn’t do much and the hat had to stay, I was totally feeling it. It, kinda, circles my world around and, at times, I want my world in a circle. It’s just like with sunglasses.
I think it’s similar with the hat, but the hat, though, you have to feel it! It’s not as easy as with the sunglasses. Sunglasses and a hat? Batman’s cape is on the house, my friend!
Then I put on comfy, floral pants. Flowers and a straw hat? A black straw hat. Uhm, ok. Natural fabrics, organic things like straws and flowers and cotton. Only natural to want the shirt made of hemp, no? Only nature on myself. The slippers were there to make me feel like almost barefoot, because barefoot is, well, a thing to me.
Just as focusing and distracting at the same time are. When playing.
Even the bag is 100 %cotton. I am telling you, on a cloudy day, an outfit made out of natural stuff, stuff that match in good fabrics and, especially, stuff you love to wear will make most of your clouds disappear. Just like with the world around the hat on your head.
A world where a puppy just comes to your door.
