Green Hues of Hope - 2021
Greens of Fall
"And all at once, summer collapsed into fall." Oscar Wilde
Green is everywhere this autumn in apparel ranging from sweaters, dresses, coats, handbags, and boots. The soothing hue is symbolic for rebirth, hope, prosperity, progress, and new horizons. When the air begins to turn crisp, the wind is chilled and the tree leaves are dressed in marvelous shades, one knows fall is here. And, yes, rains have begun once again to wash away summer. Perhaps the influx of green in fashion apparel is also beckoning a new chapter in our lives?
I hope your summer was productive, fun, and filled with sunshine and light. Of course, the world remains topsy-turvy with Covid, chaos and other blights that fill the airwaves daily. If you get caught in the circular web of listening and then worrying, you might have had or are having a heavier heart about life. Here is a news flash, this is your time on earth. Your special time. Be aware, catalog information thrown at you, yet do not dwell on the chaos that instills negativity and fear. It is best to learn how to be at ease with your life and decisions. Be kind to yourself and to humanity.
Furthermore, I have noticed a distinct division happening that is creating fragile and perilous friendships. We all know the reasons without me stating them. In a changing universe, since inception, we must preserve our friendships even if we think differently. Mankind has always struggled with lust, greed, envy, jealously, sloth, anger and overall fear that drives wedges between friends. It is so incredibly important now to value all your close friends more than ever. To accept their decisions. To love, rather than hate, to give rather than receive and ultimately to be the light in the world you revolve in. This is your time. This is their time. Why not cherish the beauty of each friend. Put down anger and judgement.
Back to sporting green, with the idea of beginning anew, taking a deep breath, and stepping out in a hue that waves of hope. September and October are always about a fresh start especially by adding in your warm infusing apparel. Think of boots, cozy cashmere, dark jeans, all the while, curled up with a good book as the fireplace glows. Seasons are glorious. Change is inevitable. Embrace this new passage, settle in, and pick up something green to add to your wardrobe.
Sea of Green
"Every leaf speaks bliss to me, fluttering from the autumn tree." Emily Bronte
Recently Meghan and Harry were in the latest issue of Time Magazine. They both were wearing a spruce green. Did you see it? Or at the Emmy's, green was on display. This hue is everywhere in various shades and making a show-stopping statement. Catalogs, online shopping, in-store are touting the green vibe. Anything from vibrant jewel greens to the faintest lime. It is simply gorgeous and so appropriate for this time of year.
Here are my picks!
The greens of fall. Wishing you all a sparkling and beautiful autumn. May you fill your mind with hope, friendships and seek out the good in others. Enjoy wearing green as the fall brings us the gloriousness of another season.
