Happy Thursday ladies. Our house hunting continues and it’s wearing me out. In the meantime, I’ve added a new sport to my life. I’m lousy at it but hope to improve. The good news is it’s a team sport so others can help hold up my end.
Mr. AWSL joined the local Italian Bocce Club last year, but I didn’t. I didn’t want to bother if we weren’t planning to stay. Since we’ve decided to look for houses here, I figured it was time to get involved so I begin to feel like a member of the community.
This is what I wore to play last week. It was cold and windy but sunny. I grabbed this scarf at the last minute and really needed it. I’ve worn this scarf at least 6 times in the last two weeks because the colors make me happy and I adore polka dots.
Yesterday was my second game and I wore this. A totally different outfit with the same scarf. I walked onto the court and a woman I didn’t know said, “there you are, I recognized that great scarf”. If this scarf had been gray, black or beige, I doubt it would have been noticed. Colors and patterns are memorable which may be why my first instinct is to usually reach for neutrals.
It’s hard to tell, but I’m wearing an entirely pink outfit. The jeans appear white because they’re next to such a strong pink. The shoes are rose blush, the jeans are very pale pink, the handbag is fuschia, the hoodie is pomegranate and the scarf is a bright magenta, pink and white plaid with white polka dots.
Perhaps it’s the slow arrival of spring weather but I find myself attracted to more color than ever before, whether it’s memorable or not.
Are you more attracted to neutrals for wearability or colors for the life it can give an outfit?
Thanks for reading and have a great day.
