A map of Italy
Since the recent beginnings of my varnish adventures my nails have become a frequent starting point for my outfits.
I was just perusing my nail polish collection trying to decide on a colour combination when a map of Italy flickered across the television screen. It was a political map of Austria's boot shaped neighbour: In lavender, yellow and orange.
To match my stripes I picked my dusky violet dress, yellow tights and topped it off with an orange scarf. Of course that much layering meant it was actually warm out. Magical thinking you say? Why, no - it's only logical to conclude that I personally influence the weather ;)
If you've been following Diversions for a while you might wonder: Does Stef alway stand perched on one leg like an indecisive flamingo (a flamingo too laissez faire to lift his leg all the way up). To be honest I am not quite sure. I am often perplexed at the sheer number of shots I pull this stunt in. Usually I remind myself to stand differently and then shift my balance at the last minute anyway. I assume it must be my natural stance when facing down the camera but after further scrutiny I can confirm that this is also true for waiting in line for the photocopier.. I am just such a natural. I mean, really, who stands like that? Well. I do. Stef, Queen of the phonies.
Are you all stoked for the weekend? I can' wait to relax and maybe pay the local Museum of Zoology a visit. I am in the mood for dusty taxidermy and the lingering odour of preservative.. ;)
