“She was not quite what you would call refined. She was not quite what you would call unrefined. She was the kind of person that keeps a parrot.” -Mark Twain
My father was a commercial fisherman back in the day. He would go on excursions that could last months at a time. On one of these long deployments, my mom and her sister thought it would be a good idea to invest in a parakeet to keep my mother company when he was away. I wish I was old enough to have seen the look on my dad’s face when he came home from his fishing trip and
saw heard a squawking bird in the corner of the living room. Needless to say, it was not long thereafter he quit the fishing business.
Nowadays, although I don’t actually have a parrot as a pet, I do love a parrot-printed blouse.When sporting colored denim, it automatically adds an element of fun to an outfit. Why not continue that momentum with your upper half? I am a sucker for blouses, especially when an unexpected print is involved. When I found this number in NY last fall, I knew it was going to be a great addition to my closet. I especially loved the studded detail on the color (which will look great under a sweater or jacket come cooler weather).Paired with a sparkle clutch and my new favorite fringe booties (I apologize in advance as I know these will be making many appearances on here this season), this outfit is begging to be taken out for a night on the town!
