Nothing quite sells the coming of spring quite like a piece of fine photography entitled "Hello Spring."
So as some of you might have noticed, last Friday was a little on the quiet side over here. No, it's not because I've quit the blog or was kidnapped by Smurfs or anything like that; it's because I came down with the flu. Again. For the second time within the same season, and I spent much of the latter part of last week lying in bed, feverish, unable to do much else other than sweat, shift uncomfortably, sniffle and look completely pitiful.
Judging by this experience, I'd have to say that the first thing you lose when you hit 30 is your resistance to illness, followed closely by the ability to recouperate quickly. Kinda makes fretting over wrinkles and gray hair sound a little stupid now, doesn't it?
In any event, I'm still not back to normal yet, but I am feeling less like crudely-animated crap. So in honor of this--as well as the coming month of March--I'm feeling in the mood for something sunny. So how's about some yellow-colored things, huh?
Y'know, just because yellow is considered a springy color doesn't mean it has to be all floral-like. Just look at this fascinator, for example; it's cheerful-looking, but is more along the lines of sporty than precious.
Of course, if you like your yellow to look a little more dainty than that, you could always pick something a bit more sweet in a quirky sort of way, like this buttoned headband fascinator.
For the more daring types, you really can't wrong wrong with a bold bow fascinator, complete with marabou and dotted guinea feathers.
And there's nothing wrong with keeping it simple with a straight-up yellow cocktail hat. The black accent ribbon just makes it a little more fun.
Granted, I have never looked at an owl's wing to see how many different colors there are on them, but if this fascinator is any indicator, they're pretty colorful things.
Then again, the description might be more influenced by the size than the variation of color. Or maybe it's just because a person can't hardly click a link anywhere without running into owl-themed or owl-related stuff these days. You make the call.
And because while it may almost be March it doesn't always mean that spring is well underway, here's a yellow hat to help hedge my springy bets:
Hey--I can be optimistic to a point. After that, it helps to remember that nothing is certain except for death, taxes and possibly the Ice Capades. This hat would probably help with all three.
See you Wednesday!
