I decided to start with the first combination I wrote down for the Seasons and Nature Challenge. And I'm glad I did, because looking at the photo of me is calming my soul this morning. I selected the bright blue tee for the sky, the teal cardi for the back pool of water, the dark bootcuts for the shadowed rock surfaces, and the taupe boots for the sand.

Of course, it's not quite cool enough to wear this all day, but it was OK first thing in the morning, outside.

This combination — two big colors — felt like it required effort to pull off for about 30 seconds, and then it was just happy.
