Apparently, even though there’s no real evidence to support it, a lot of people believe that the original word for “butterfly” was actually flutterby!!
It certainly makes a lot of sense – considering the way they fly! – while dairy products, on the other hand, don’t enter into the equation at all as far as I can tell!! Besides…”flutterby” just sounds so much prettier, don’t you think??
I felt a little like a flutterby/butterfly wearing this vibrant, kimono-inspired blouse today; those oversized sleeves are not exactly practical (even washing my hands was a challenge!) but oh!! The dreamy way the fabric floated around me in the slightest breeze made it all worthwhile!!
And aren’t fuchsia and orange so incredible together?? My cork-heeled sandals peeking out from under the hem of my jeans added just a touch of the former colour to my look…until I found this slouchy, fabric hobo bag at Forever 21.
Now this is the way to do florals and stripes for the summer!!
