My Signature Summer Look {Tag!}

Nath at Beautycalypse  is hosting a  Signature Summer Look Tag for green beauty bloggers because, as she says,  “why should make-up brands have ALL THE FUN”
of determining what should be the signature style of the season.

I am not a green beauty blogger. I don’t wear make-up and it’s not summer, here, but I want to have FUN, so this is my take on Nath’s Tag.  In its own way, it’s very green, both in the ecological sense and in its naivety.

Here is my adventuring with signature style. ~

A flock of nymphs I chanced to espy,……
And each one had a little wicker basket
Made of the finest twigs, entrailed curiously,
In which they gather’d flowers to fill their flasket……

Two of those nymphs meanwhile two garlands bound
Of freshest flowers which in that mead they found,
The which presenting all in trim array,
Their snowy foreheads therewithal they crown’d;

 from Prothalamion by Edmund Spenser (1552-1599)

 

 

Calm was the day, and through the trembling air
Sweet-breathing Zephyrus did softly play – 

from Prothalamion by Edmund Spenser (1552-1599)

 

So what thinkest thee?  I had fun. Did you?

The only slight ‘downer’ on my fun was that I was only brave enough to venture in to town with one of my signature styles; and it wasn’t one of my better efforts. If people noticed at all, it would have been to wonder if I had been working in the garden,  had become entangled in a bush, and had forgotten to check in the mirror before leaving the house, bush in tow. 😦  Sigh.  Also a touch sad is that I live in a society that deems it natural (  indeed, almost obligatory ) to disguise gray/white hair with unnatural dyes, and deems it unnatural ( if not eccentric ) to appear in public, on an every day basis,  with  natural flowers in one’s hair.

 

~~
A lily of a day
Is fairer far in May,
Although it fall and die that night;
It was the plant, and flower of light.
In small proportions we just beauties see,
And in short measures life may perfect be.

from Proportion by Ben Jonson ( c. June 11 1572 – August 6 1637)
