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.

    • It really looked like it was on fire and it reflected on the mountains which turned red. I have pictures of it, but it looks so fake, I never bothered to post them. I’ve never seen mountains turn red in the light of sunset. It was kind of amazing.

  2. 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

    • We layer here a lot because the weather is so changeable. Literally cold one minute, warm the next. Rain, sun, wind and a little hail? Why not. Whatever you want in the weather, just wait a minute.

      • The only good thing about today is it’s “Baby” Bro Anton’s Birthday. He joins the “60 club”. I hope the weather is better where Anton lives. But they were beset by twisters yesterday in parts of Minnesota.

      • Thanks for the cancellations, my love. Good to sleep. Furry kids aren’t happy with weather but a few extra biscuits will make them smile.
