Writers wear black.
Lots of it.
It’s kind of funny, actually, that as a lot, we’ve sort of taken this color and decided to claim it as our own. I’m not sure how this got started, perhaps because as a group we’re sort of identified as a deep-thinking with a dark side. But I don’t necessarily subscribe to that label, as some labels just simply aren’t true.
Some of us are happy writers.
Happy writers who wear a lot of black.
So my mission this semester on campus as a professor is to liven up my wardrobe. Does this mean I will never wear black or combinations of it again?
Of course not. That would be a ridiculous commitment to make. I still like the color black. It’s just that I want to lighten up my looks a little bit, especially as I am aging. There is no need to look like I’m headed to a funeral or in mourning every day.
For the past 14 days, I have not worn all black to work. I’m sharing a sample of what I’ve worn, as I’ve been posting some of my outfits (I missed some days) on Instagram at stephanie.verni.
What colors are your favorite to wear? I seem to be gravitating to a lot of reds lately.
Let me know how you’re assessing your own wardrobe, and have a great weekend, everyone.
