Today I missed the ocean. The sights, the sounds, and the smells (well, most of them). There are several solutions to this problem:
- Rewatch The Voyage of the Mimi
- Loiter around the seafood tanks at Whole Foods
- Dress in cool blues and greens
This time, I chose color…and Ben Affleck.*
*But not in a creepy way. The dude’s like 11 there.

Pastels have never been my favorite. Besides doing little for my coloring, they’ve never appealed to me aesthetically. Why choose light blue when there’s royal, cobalt, cerulean, electric indigo, and ultramarine to be had?
But the one place I do appreciate a well-placed pastel is with black. Combining pastels with black classes up the one while brightening the other. Just see how chic Marge Simpson looked in her pink and black Chanel suit.
So I’ll gladly pair my black batwing dress with delicious mint green accessories.
But where I really love pastels is on the tree outside my window.
