Come Into The Garden

As I prepared these photos for the blog, I realized that I wore very similar things the same time last year – something about July that makes my outfits take on a decidedly floral look. I guess it’s because the summer flowers in our garden are starting to bloom, so I can’t help but draw some inspirations from them, which means bringing out my floral shirts, green bottoms, and brown shoes. They may not be the most imaginative “flower-inspired” looks, but they’re serviceable and easy to throw on, and in the summer, that’s all I’m asking for.

And on that note, here are some more of our flowers – it’s been a while since I shared these, so enjoy!

Audition

I wore this when I had to proctor our school’s entrance examination in early September (due to the pandemic, everything got pushed back a month.) It was going to be an all-day affair, so I wanted something simple and easy to move around in. As it turned out, I got the easy job this year – I had to oversee the auditions of the musical theater students. I only had to ferry them back and forth from the waiting room to the audition room, and even got to watch them sing and dance. It was great fun, and it certainly beats sitting in a room for 4 hours watching them sweat over a film essay.
