Not in the pink

Four days last week I wore summery clothing to work, like skirts, in summery colors. One day I wore yellow, the next day light green, and on another day I actually wore a long PINK skirt and my southwestern-style (pink, lt blue, navy) blouse. The pink outfit got compliments, and I think the yellow did too. I'm not a pastel or summery-color person. I like dark, drapey clothes. It felt quite weird and a bit surreal to be dressed up in "costume" for work! On Friday I wore navy blue, one of my very favorite colors (black is the other one) to work and felt like me again.

But I don't like dark furnishings, in fact I have a lot of red in my bedroom, yellow in the kitchen and blue in the living room--just dark clothing. I read somewhere that people wear dark clothing as a disguise, but the brightly color clothing felt more like a disguise to me! Isn't it rather odd that I like primary colors for decoration, though?

So, along with thinking about career moves and the Seven Deadly Sins, I've been thinking about other people's color choices. What's your preference on clothing colors? Is it different than your preference in decor?

In decor I prefer earth tones and neutrals...for clothing more earth tones. I'm not colorful at all.

I wear black or dark blue slacks only. I have to, I don't know why, but I have to. I don't own any other color. Now my blouses can be any color. As long as they fit well and are comfortable I will wear it. Comfort is my #1 buying rule. My furniture tends to be a darker color. Like dark blues and Black and grey. My bedroom is dark almost cherry color wood but the bedding and curtains are always colorful. I have a very bright yellow, orange and green bathroom.

Now that I'm retired, costumes are even more important---what would my day be like if I didn't choose which persona I was going to be today? There probably isn't a colour I won't wear, if the clothing is to my liking, although light blue in anything but denim doesn't appeal to me
