Flutterby

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!!

      The top's pattern and sleeves are kinda boho-tastic, aren't they, dearest Veronika?! And the fabulous colours make me wonder why I don't wear brights a little more often!! ๐Ÿ˜‰

      The blouse was one of my fabulous Winners finds from a few years ago, dearest Dawn…it makes quite the statement with those sleeves and the colour, doesn't it?! ๐Ÿ˜‰
