What is going on in Anna’s wardrobe lately?
The winter layers are peeling back to reveal springtime cheeriness. But I have issues. With polo shirts.
Last week, when the weather was balmy, I wore a denim jumper with a yellow polo shirt underneath and a light cotton tichel over my hair. As I took my daily walk around campus, I felt really unbalanced. The shirt revealed too much arm for the tichel. Then I obsessed about being able to get enough sunshine to make vitamin D. Oy, the issues!
Kristen then highlighted another recurrent theme of mine: Plainness, or the other meaning of modesty, of not drawing attention to oneself. My current clothing trend is generally ok in regards to inches covered of flesh (except the blasted polo shirt), but the hodge-podgey colors and patterns bothers me. Blend In might be the theme of my clothing purchases this year. Focus on solid earth tones, less bright patterns or stripes. Think librarian.
So how how is your wardrobe these days?
