How to dress for a stroll in a field

When your city is engulfed with turmoil dividing people and shattering lives, you cannot bear to see. You close your eyes and press your lips ‘cause you know that there is nothing you can do to break free. For days you lock yourself behind curtains, sheltered and unharmed, but bored. Gone are all the alluring signs abound, enticing shopping malls and processions of fashionistas strutting back and forth in the streets when the pavements are no longer baked by the sun’s shimmering spikes. Such is the fate of the City of Angel for months now and it’s sad.

When your dream city turns into nightmare, flee to your field of dreams. Get your suitcase and pack for things just enough for a stroll in the up-country where there are no guards to stop you, no bombs and no maddening fire.

Look for a secluded meadow. Feel the breeze and like a bird spread your wings. Who wouldn’t love the taste a golden day of sunshine? Absorb it. Not everyone is as blessed as you.

But while you do so, enjoying your carefree abandon, make sure that you are dressed for the occasion. Take your best ankle boots or your most comfy casual shoes. You might love to take a pair of black or white sandals? Or even red? Go ahead. You’re out of the city and nobody’s going to notice that you’re in red. Go for an ESTIMATE floral-print blouse. Or if you’re on the mood, wear this very lovely JOURNAL dress. But whatever you'd wear, you're the one who decides for the occasion.
