I know you were expecting me to say I write in couture evening dresses and full makeup. If you want me to do that, you need to buy more books. Designer fashions and stylists slightly exceed my thrift store budget.
While I’m not a style icon, neither am I a person who can stay in my pajamas.
My usual wardrobe consists of jeans, multiple layers of t-shirts, and a cardigan. The color scheme ranges from gray to purple to a rare magenta. It’s boring.
At a recent thrift store venture, I found five cardigans, all in the purple spectrum except for the cream colored one that is very similar to the one I have in the donation pile. I did add one my previous purple cardigans to the pile.
I’m usually cold, so I dress in layers and lately I’ve added a scarf to my wardrobe. While it might look dramatic or artistic, (because it often holds the only non-bland color and pattern I wear), it’s really because my neck and shoulder muscles get tight when I’m cold.
I love skirts and maxidresses, but they aren’t always practical. But my kids no longer require me to sit on the floor and I have recently discovered that you can wear tights or leggings under them without being frumpy. (Because not being frumpy is SOOO important in my wardrobe. <snort>) Yay for being warm!
When I actually sit down to write, it’s usually after my run, so I’m wearing my sweaty running clothes because I am too lazy to shower and change (and if I did, I wouldn’t have any time to write because it would be bedtime.) To fight the cold, I have a heating pad and a blanket.
