“You look like a summer siren!” exclaimed a work friend as we walked from the office under the blazing sunshine. Tuesday was one of those rare, lovely summers day we haven’t had in a while. It’s on those days I like to dress as bright as I can and take advantage of the sunshine.So a summer siren….huh? Sirens are found in many Greek stories, Homer’s Odyssey for instance. Sirens were beautiful, yet dangerous creatures, their lovely music was said to entice sailors to their doom. Photo:Google Images
According to my friend, my outfit with it’s colour fusion of oranges, pinks,wines and reds was fiercely beautiful and enticing….just like those mythology creatures. As the conversation went on and we strolled through the park, we saw beautiful red flowers and as they complimented my outfit, we thought that this was certainly a photo opportunity!!When I put on my outfit on that morning, I never thought I will walk through the park under the sun and red flowers. The outfit was my choice and my environment just helped me look like a ‘summer siren’. Sometimes our environment and society can influence how we look but at the end of day we are our own style Picassos!!
