Minty Tears

No, I wasn’t crying. No, they didn’t taste like mint. My necklace has teardrop shaped beads, get it? I actually had a really nice day frolicking in fallen leaves, except for one awkward moment.

We were under this tree throwing & kicking leaves in the air, capturing it on camera, etc. when this elderly couple stands at the end of the pathway and watches with stern looks on their face. I was a little taken aback, but kept running around this tree, absurdly kicking leaves everywhere like a maniac. Eventually, the couple made their way up to the tree -completely ignoring my deranged behaviour- and stood in silence while staring at the ground. Curiously, I peered over, and realized the tree was memorialized in honour of a man who passed away. Awkwardly, we slowly retraced our steps and started walking backwards until we were out of sight. If that couple somehow reads this blog, “Sorry if I disrespected your loved one’s tree. I’m a good person, I swear!”

I wore a bright orange sweater that reminded me of the hue that was plastered all over home decor in the 70’s. Glad that explosion of orange in the home interior is outdated, however, the shade in fashion ain’t. I paired it with a burnt orange pleated skirt with a cheetah bow-tie print and cream knee-highs. I added two pops of mint in my necklace and tote bag, and ended it off with cut-out chelsea boots.
