PINSTRIPES AND PINEAPPLES

A really great 2co-ord, like this one from Sparkle and Fade, is a great way of making an impact, without either breaking the bank, or having to make too much effort. Getting the print right can be tricky, you do not want it to be too loud, or too floral, as you will end up looking like upholstery. Matching prints for men is even trickier, but if you pick a colour from the top half and match it with the trousers (or visa versa) the result looks well thought through, but not obvious.

this is not a tempest. not a flood or a fire or a lightning strike.

this is that first cup of coffee in the blue mug, the sound of someone humming the same tune as yesterday two doors over.

this is wearing an old sweater not because it is beautiful, but because it keeps you warm.
