Tiger Tiger Burning Bright

Happy Year of the Tiger! This New Year is extra special for me, because I was born in the Year of the Tiger – though according to the Chinese sexagenary cycle, I’m a Fire Tiger, and this year is the year of the Water Tiger. Also, apparently, my birth year corresponds to the element of “wood” (out of the five elements – metal, wood, water, fire, and earth), so I’m not just a Fire Tiger, I’m a Fire Tiger of the Forest (Chinese horoscope is very confusing) – hence the William Blake quote in the title.

And that’s also why, for this New Year outfit, I gave a nod to my birth sign with this tiger-embroidered top and the green color scheme (for the “forest” bit, get it?) We’re having a very simple celebration this year due to the pandemic, so I’m keeping my outfits casual.
