Brown Paper Packages Tied Up With String

The Sound Of Music is one of my all time favourite movies. EVER. I spent many many hours of my childhood watching and singing along with my Grandmother.

The reason I am talking about "The Sound of Music" is that the dress I am wearing today has always reminded me of the play clothes that Maria makes the children out of the curtains. I think it may have even been her first night in the Vonn Trapp household- and she is belting out "My Favourite Things" in the storm when the idea hits her. (When the dog bites, When the bee stings, when I'm feeling saaaaaaad... and so on) It is pretty much impossible to wear this frock and not have that very song running through my head at some point in the day. Like now in fact.

I have always been a sucker for green 70's floral/ paisley patterns so this was a no brainer purchase when I found it in a red Cross Op Shop about 8 years ago. I like that in Summer I can wear it with my olive green high top chuck taylors (like today) or jandals- and in Winter I can wear it with tights, a cardi and long boots. How very versatile...

I may be at work today when everyone I know is at home- but I simply remember my favourite things and then I don't feel sooo baaaaaaaaaad!
