This print makes me think of stained glass windows for some reason.
I'm thinking it's the leaves on the tree; they're all rounded and look glassy-like and stuff.
Internets, we've only just passed the midway mark of August, and already I can see the leaves on the trees are turning. Not particularly quickly, thank goodness, but even so; it's not even Labor Day, and already there are patches of yellow, red and orange mottling the vast expanse of green that lines the horizon.
And dang it, I'm not ready for this yet. While I don't mind the fact that we appear to be past the sticky heat of summer, I am not down with fall showing up just yet. Couldn't it at least wait until September? At least then it won't feel so silly for me to start digging out my admittedly large collection of hooded sweaters.
But seeing as it's useless to argue with nature, I suppose I might as well get used to the idea. And what better way to do that than with some autumnal-themed fascinators?
Mind you, I haven't seen any leaves that look like this yellow-orange oak leaf fascinator yet, but I suspect it's only a matter of time. Although, in my experience, oak leaves are the last to change anyway, and they always seem to turn a sort-of fawn brown. So maybe I'll never see an oak leaf this color at all.
And speaking of colors on leaves that I will most likely never find in nature...
...Yeah, I'm pretty sure I'm never going to come across a light blue leaf. So it's probably a good thing this felt fascinator exists; otherwise, I'd never see one at all.
However, I would say that it's a pretty safe bet that all the colors of the leaves found in this fascinator can be found in nature. But then again, I don't think they'd look nearly as lovely in your hair for as long as this will, so it evens out.
And just because I'm stubborn and don't want to let summer go just yet, here's a whole freakin' bough of green leaves:
Wait a sec--are there some yellow leaves in there, too? Well, crap. Still a lovely fascinator, though.
And on that note, see you Wednesday!
