When I started working on this post, it was pouring rain in Chicago. I mean pouring buckets and barrels and VATS of rain…
The next day, the temperature is over 20C, and quite lovely. If the wind doesn’t (literally) blow you over…
Which made me realize yet again that there are really more than 4 season in the year; they’ve apparently always know that in Japan!
So I’m very intrigued by the idea of 24 Seasons – which are divided into 72 wee mini-seasons! I’ll stick with this 24 for now, but I never rule out doing something fun with 72 seasons!
My thinking, at this early stage: an outfit for each mini-season, 3 garments. That would be a 72-garment wardrobe – considerably smaller than what I currently have.
Oh heck – first, let’s look at the seasons!
This brings us to the current – very appropriate – season of Grain Rain. The furrows of seed need to be watered!
Here’s what I’m thinking of – an ensemble that would be appropriate for this 15 days or so…
A fun raincoat, a warm sweater or fleece, pants that can be rolled up if necessary, and waterproof footwear:
Yes, I would wear white jeans in the rain – I would just roll them up out of harm’s way! And a pair of snazzy black and white sox wouldn’t hurt…
Some of us prefer subtle…
On to the rest of the seasons!
So what do you think? Is this an intriguing way to look at the year, and at our lives within it?
p.s. Three years ago, we revisited our opera singer heroine, who always wears skirts and dresses!
