Brightness in Winter

These colors are bold for October, but a New Year is approaching and a New Year is for trying new things. October was grateful to recently get a box of hand-me-down clothes from a kind relative. October tries to keep a small, organized closet, so when she receives a box of hand-me-downs, she only keeps what she's sure of wearing and tosses something else from her closet. October thinks donating a box of clothing at this time is a great symbol of sending off baggage from last year to make room for better things in the new.

Being in the unusual position of an adult who still gets hand-me-downs from relatives gives October the opportunity to try pieces she would pass by in a store - like this sweater vest. After trying it on, she was surpised that she loved it!
October wishes you a safe and glorious New Year.
