Imagine if confetti, rather than lava, erupted from volcanoes. Or, even better, candy — like a naturally occurring pinata!
I still have a child’s fascination with volcanoes and tidal waves.
A few posts back, a commenter mentioned her young sons’ current interest in dinosaurs. It’s universal, isn’t it, the way children gravitate toward the same awesome/scary/gruesome things between the ages of 7-12:
and the least predictable of all, spontaneous combustion.
Were you fixated on any/all of these as a child?
The Photographer and I visited Naples several years ago, and upon returning home watched a documentary on how utterly unprepared Naples and the surrounding region are for the eruption of Mt. Vesuvius.
Here’s the takeaway: If you are visiting Naples and experience any seismic tremors, go back to your hotel, pack your bag, and leave immediately. Do not wait for a second sign.
For your consideration, here is an achievable idea. A cozy, off-the-shoulder sweater with something unexpected and fun emerging from it.
You haven’t seen this twisted turtleneck for a while. For those who’ve forgotten it entirely, here is a refresher.
Come closer and delight in this madcap stripe.
It may not be noticeable here, but the striped jersey has asymmetrical capped sleeves. On one side, this layering creates the world’s tiniest cold shoulder effect which I actually think is charming — though I am not generally a huge fan of that cut.
An off-the-shoulder sweater is very effective with a severe white blouse or asymmetrical jersey underneath it. I thought this sweater would also be pretty with this red blouse.
Have a fantastic weekend!
