DRESSING AGAINST THE WEATHER

CEE’S FUN FOTO CHALLENGE: THE COLORS YELLOW AND RED

It’s a very gray, chilly, rainy day here in the northeast. The dogs are restless and I wish we could just cancel the day and go back to bed.

Garry, when I first moved to Boston, introduced me to the concept of “dressing against the weather.” What this means is that when the day is very bright, it’s a good day to wear brown, black, gray and other dark neutrals. But when the weather is dreary and dark, that’s when you need a red shirt, a yellow tie. You need to bring your own sunshine to the day.

Today is such a day. Yellow and red sound like just what the doctor ordered!

  1. I love the idea of dressing ‘up’ on a grey day, and a bouquet of flowers like that first shot would be the prefect tonic for a day when one wants to hide under the duvet.

  5. Thanks for the flowers and that’s one great red car! Makes sense to bring your own sunshine. It’s miserable here too.

  6. Great selection of photos. Here, it is hard to know what to dress in. Cold, crisp nights, warm balmy days. Dressing like an onion is called for I think. Easier to peel of clothes when it gets warm, and then put them back on for the night

  9. As Spring arrived I detected a massive cheer from many Eastern folks who had a bitter Winter.
    Where did you find that car – said the geezer, completely not noticing the flowers.
