Shirts, shirts, shirts and colours, colours, colours. As you probably know, Greenery is color of this year as nominated by Pantone. To quote them:

"A refreshing and revitalizing shade, Greenery is symbolic of new beginnings.Greenery is a fresh and zesty yellow-green shade that evokes the first days of spring when nature’s greens revive, restore and renew. Illustrative of flourishing foliage and the lushness of the great outdoors, the fortifying attributes of Greenery signals consumers to take a deep breath, oxygenate and reinvigorate.Greenery is nature’s neutral. The more submerged people are in modern life, the greater their innate craving to immerse themselves in the physical beauty and inherent unity of the natural world. This shift is reflected by the proliferation of all things expressive of Greenery in daily lives through urban planning, architecture, lifestyle and design choices globally. A constant on the periphery, Greenery is now being pulled to the forefront - it is an omnipresent hue around the world.A life-affirming shade, Greenery is also emblematic of the pursuit of personal passions and vitality."

Indeed. These words can perfectly describe what I've been feeling throughout the year - an immense craving to immerse myself in the physical beauty of the natural world. And I'm feeling this more and more often. Trapped between consumerism and concrete for the moment, at least I care to bring a sense of joy and expressivity though my outfits: green and fuchsia / pink seems to be my latest addiction - it just feels right. It feels like a breath of fresh air, mountain vibes and wild flowers.

 But until I'll get lost in the nature again, I keep sportin' half unbuttoned shirts, wide belts, lots of green, sport socks and velvet sandals. Oh, and oversized sunnies and tweed bum bags. Maybe this is how an actual dreamer looks like.
