"The April rain, the April rain,
Comes slanting down in fitful showers,
Then from the furrow shoots the grain,
And banks are fledged with nestling flowers;
And in grey shawl and woodland bowers
The cuckoo through the April rain
Calls once again."

Mathilde Blind, April Rain

What are you wearing?

A very long baggy dress, with a pattern made of beige and dark red feathers on a black background. It's perfect for a summer day and it allows me to squat and sit on the ground with my daughters in a comfortable way :)
What about you?

    I'm wearing a red cotton skirt that goes down to a few inches below the knees. It's not so hot today, so I thought I'd wear it as I prefer loose cotton trousers when it's really hot. When I go out, I'll change and wear a white cotton sleeveless blouse which will go better with the skirt than the turquoise T-shirt I'm wearing right now.

    My style is casual. If it's not too hot, I wear jeans. Otherwise cotton trousers with a T-shirt. I usually only wear blouses if I have to look respectable.

    I'm back in jeans as the temperature has dropped. So, I'm wearing light blue jeans, and a dark blue t-shirt, with mismatched socks and a pair of trainers.

    At the moment I'm back in my turquoise sleeveless T-shirt and black shorts. I'm going to change into my red skirt when I go out. I have a nice black T-shirt that I bought in Darjeeling that I haven't worn yet that I think I'll wear with it. It's quite close fitting but as it's a bit cooler today, it should be fine.

    Let me start from the bottom upwards. I am barefoot and dressed in fine, thin summer trousers. At the top I am wearning a strawberry red bloucer with white dots on it.
  • mheredgemheredge Wordsmith Here and therePosts: 24,885 mod
    I'm also wearing a blouse today, @Hermine, but a pale blue and beige one with a floral design. I'm wearing baggy black cotton trousers which are nice and comfortable in this hot weather.
  • HermineHermine Moderator Posts: 5,940 mod
    Today I am wearing a black pair of trousers, blue sandals and the same blouser as I wore yesterday.
  • mheredgemheredge Wordsmith Here and therePosts: 24,885 mod
    I'm wearing a striped t-shirt (blue and white) and my baggy black cotton trousers. They are on their last legs (groan) as they are splitting apart. Tonight they will be dumped in the dustbin.

    Vest and boxers, the Indian summer is to blame.

    I'm only slightly better @guptakaran93‌, with a sleeveless T-shirt and cotton shorts I bought in the street market by the side of the Maiden in Kolkata, when I was there in February.

    Today I'm wearing a sleeveless white cotton blouse and my red 'Heidi' skirt. It is made with tiers. The bottom is trimmed with a thin edging of black lace, with a black floral design around the bottom. When I wore it to go to the theatre in Calcutta a couple of months ago, an American friend suggested I looked like Heidi in it. I now can't help wanting to yodel every time I wear it!
  • [Deleted User][Deleted User] Posts: 0 ✭✭
    I am still wearing the same :blush:
  • mheredgemheredge Wordsmith Here and therePosts: 24,885 mod

    A pair of black sandals with leather sole, a pair of blue jeans and on to a light pink blouse. It is raining heavily and I chose the wrong shoes, the resulat I have a soar.
    I mentioned the leather sole, because I nearly fell over today, they are so smooth.
  • mheredgemheredge Wordsmith Here and therePosts: 24,885 mod
    I'm wearing some beige long shorts (below the knee) and a pale blue top. It's one of my favourites, as it's made from a thin cotton that dries almost instantly and never creases. I've worn it out though, so today is it's last day of use as I noticed that in one place it has worn through completely. I hope nobody notices.
  • HermineHermine Moderator Posts: 5,940 mod
    I am wearing some sporty trousers and on top a coloured blouse. They rain stopped and the sun is shining from time to time. It is still too wet to sit outside on the grass. The berries on the bushes will be ripe soon and I can produce our beloved cordial again.

    Hi minoosh, where do you live? I am reading a book where the women wear Hijab, the book is called `The Kite runner`.

    Hi Hermine .I live in Iran. Most moslem women have hejab but unfortunately in Iran it is compulsory
  • HermineHermine Moderator Posts: 5,940 mod
    @minoosh, are you covered fully in fabric? Here sometimes I can see a few women who are covered fully where just their eyes are visible.

    About 70 cyclists wore nothing or rarely nothing in Brussels yesterday.
    They claimed more safety for cyclists.

    Not a sight for sore eyes @april! I'm not sure I would have liked to see all those cyclists in the buff.

    @minoosh, when I visited Iran, I wore a long black dress (with long sleeves) that came to well below my knees, over black trousers. I wore a large black scarf over my head, but it didn't cover my face. I met an older Iranian lady who wore sky blue in protest of having to wear a hejab. She was very kind and had invited me into her home. Indoors she and her daughter wore exactly the same clothes as anyone would have worn anywhere: knee-length skirts and short-sleeved tops, with no hejab.

    I'm wearing the cousin of the top I was wearing yesterday (I bought two at the time), but yesterdays one is now in the dustbin as it was worn through. I'm being very boring and wearing the same cropped trousers. They are smart enough (just) for work.

    @Hermine no. the most women in Iran are not fully covered . What we are wearing is completely different from what Arabian women wear. The women specially young women in Iran are very fashionable and wear chic clothes.
  • [Deleted User][Deleted User] Posts: 0
    @mheredge You are right.
  • HermineHermine Moderator Posts: 5,940 mod
    @minoosh, thank you. I believe the women are wearing wonderful dresses under their black wrappings - sorry for the name, but I do not know the exact expression.
  • HermineHermine Moderator Posts: 5,940 mod
    I am wearing my red slippers and have already on my night dress it is white with pink dots in it. Yes I am prepared for bed.
  • aprilapril Moderator Posts: 9,901 mod
    Not my cup of tea either @mheredge‌, but many countries do this kind of manifestation, even Brazil.
    I don't think I am keen to put the picture here. :D
