Sorry for the rubbish photo, right after i took this i banged my hand against a wall and smudged them. Graceful i know. One of my many charms.
I love this design. I think the blue and purple against the white really go well for the spring, you could try darker shades for winter and maybe even go yellowish for summer, or is that too daring? I'm thinking yellow and orange but i think they might look a bit too much like an abstract chicken for comfort. Maybe even try tiger print. Who knows. Trial and error.You can do the strips anyway you like, the leopard print in any direction and it still works.
Hope you are enjoying the weather as much as i am. Although I've been wearing shorts and summer dresses everyday for about 3 weeks, refusing to accept it wasn't as sunny as i wished it was. oh, not shorts and summer dresses together, on separate occasions.
