So, in hindsight, wearing green in a dense overgrowth of vibrant greenery was probably not the most brilliant idea I've ever had. To be fair, my brain doesn't start working until I have coffee. Also, my blogging frustrations hit fever pitch this morning when I discovered that a) my camera battery was dead, b) when I finally rushed out to the field with my camera after a ten-minute supercharge, some lady was walking her dogs there and c) I was already late for work. Whine, whine, complain, complain, moving on! It all worked out. This outfit was inspired by two things: my new polka dot socks, which I adore, and my green wool jumper, which I also adore. I've been stumbling around in my head trying to find a way to wear these socks without resorting to basic browns and blahs, and I think there is enough pattern mixing here (striped shirt, paisley scarf, polka dots...and color--green!) to keep it from falling flat. Expect to see great things from these polka dot socks in the future:
I've taken to wearing my socks inside out and folding them down. This works fairly well, but I'm still on the lookout for lots of pretty bobbysocks that are designed to turn down like this.

The fog this morning was really cool. Vermont is "The Green Mountain State," and they weren't kidding when they coined the phrase ("Vermont" even comes from the French Vert-Mont, which means green mountain), so when the fog descends over the mountains it's reminiscent of a rainforest. I felt like a Gorilla in the Mist.
