Summer is generally a sunny and happy time of year.
People throw off the thick winter coats and heavy boots and wear some nice sandals.
I saw this one lady wearing these happy, colorful sandals on the Metro.
I'd expect to see these more in Florida or California than in stodgy Washington, D.C.
They were pretty awesome--trendy, stylish, even comfortable looking.
Fashion is self-expression and freedom.
It's also artistic and a reflection of our culture and our desires.
We need more color, more chance, more futurism from our fashion.
The clothes can shape not only our bodies, but the times we live in. ;-)
