Itâ€™s been a lovely day today. A perfect Pacific Northwest afternoon, M. calls it.
The ideal day to do all the great little things Iâ€™ve been putting off, I went for a walk during my lunch break â€“ I havenâ€™t done that in a very long time. It just seemed like such a waste to be sitting indoors staring out forlornly at the sea and mountains.
I did a thirty minute nice leisurely thoughtful walk by the harbour and then came down to Pacific Centre to do a bit of window shopping inspired by the gorgeous summer dresses Iâ€™d seen on people.
Almost every summer I promise myself Iâ€™d only wear dresses, only to cave in on the fourth or fifth day. This year, my goal is to go longer, hopefully a whole month of wearing dresses only â€“ weâ€™ll see.
I didnâ€™t find the kind of dresses I was looking for; although I wasnâ€™t looking for a specific dress per se.
During the winter, through depressing rain, slush and snow, Iâ€™d think of beautiful colourful summer dresses, like the kind you see in J Crew catalogues or the kind worn by people who vacation in those New England beach towns.
I think Iâ€™ll keep looking; Iâ€™m excited by the thought of wearing only dresses for thirty days this summer. It sounds perfectâ€¦ so perfectly me! I just might do it, and write about it.
