After The Rain

I finally got my wish – it rained today (it’s going to be really warm the next couple of days though. Poop.) I took these photos in between two rain showers this afternoon. Everything felt so clean, but it actually didn’t remind me of home, since after the rain in Vietnam it’s usually hot and humid. What I was reminded of was Greifswald, where my sister used to live in Germany. It rained almost every day the first summer I was there, but because Greifswald is really far up north, it felt just like this – cool and fresh. I miss Europe…

Today’s Winter Edition Challenge prompt is Monochromatic. Last time for the challenge I wore red, so I went with the other end of the spectrum this time (I skipped the ABC’s of Style, G for Glitter and Glam, because I only have one glittery thing, which is my sequined belt, and it is not monochromatic at all.)

Shirt: Target; Skirt: thrifted
