Blazing Red

This week required some red. I had a lot of stuff to get done and wearing red made me feel prepared to attack those essays with some force. I actually took these photos a couple of days back now. A lot of the snaps came out too pink. Clearly my camera couldn't handle the drastic change in my outfit choices from all blue to pretty dang red. 

Usually, when I get dressed my choices depend on my mood. A lot of my mood in the morning is mostly influenced by the weather. If I can see that it's set to rain for a good 24 hours then I'll pick out something dark, cosy and perfect for dragging though the fields with my copy of Jane Eyre. Other times, when the sun beams through my curtains, my hand dives straight for a floral dress that will be perfect for flouncing around town. On this particular day, I knew I needed to get down to business. Wearing red always makes me feel powerful and ready to check through my to do list. Whether I manage to is another matter entirely.

Blue is with beyond doubt my favourite colour to wear. I have numerous blue ribbons, navy shirts, baby blue knits and even my pale blue practical waterproof. Over the years, my wardrobe has become almost completely full of blue items. Once I was on a trip with some random people and I remember a girl complaining about how much she hated black and navy being put together in an outfit. Black and navy is my go to. As I've grown up I seem to have become a lot darker in my choice of shades but always stuck with blue being at the core. To me, blue and black are classy. I'm sure as the summer months creep in, as they are even up here in Scotland, I'll add some warmer colours to my outfits. For now though, I'm quite happy camouflaging into the bright blue sea and chilly azure skies.

I've always had a fascination with the sky and clouds. I guess it's part of the reason I'm studying geography. I love the way it alters so quickly and is constantly on the move. It truly boggles me when there is a super lush sunset and people don't take a even a short moment to take it in. The other day, there was a stunning pink sky dying over the horizon. Despite my protests, my pals refused to come with me to see it. After grabbing my camera is had almost died out but I see got to enjoy most of it. Most often I'm able to catch the sunset and take a stroll on the beach. This year I'd like to greet the sunrise more. Unfortunately that would involve me getting up in the wee hours of the day and ,for a night owl like myself, that would be prove extremely testing. Alas, I'll set 11 alarms and it will happen.

Time Drifter

Boy, it's been a while. This week has been hectic. I had a bunch of deadlines that involved doing some pretty awful stats analyses. It was also the anniversary of my day of birth! The working put a bit of a downer on my birthday celebrations but overall the day was rather lovely. I refused to work all day and instead went to play some Frisbee in the sun. This weekend was also full of work but I managed to fit in some short walks along the beach. I love when the sea is so calm on days like these. They are just what I need to take my mind off everything and help me refocus on what really matters. 

p.s: I was super spoilt and got a sewing machine for my birthday! But I think I'll dedicate a whole post to that another time. Watch this space for some diys and homemade dresses.
