Learning to color

March 26, 2014 - Jennifer Brookens
Apparantly, my family and friends think I need to branch out my wardrobe. I have been challenged to add "color" to my wardrobe.

So I wear a lot of black. My excuse for those who give me the color argument is that black is all the colors living together. (Dunno if they really buy that or not). But with spring Supposedly arriving, I am trying to update and add a spash of color to the wardrobe (other than denim blue jeans... The Girl says that doesn't count).

I used to wear more color, but I guess I've just become a darker person in the past years. When I do wear colors, it is a darker color. I tried something mauve a few years ago and felt like I was making a spectacle... I ended up changing during my lunch hour. By the way, if I am wearing something with color, chances are someone got it for me. It's not that I don't like color, but you hit a certain point in your life and you don't want to wear something that makes you look like an Easter egg!

Anyway, a few weeks ago I tried to shop for clothes. And sure enough everything that I would consider was black. Although I did buy a pair of navy pants. But now I don't have anything (other than black) to go with them. Ask an opinion, and everyone has a different "go to" color... and it's all bolds and pastels.

There's got to be a crash course available for this stuff...

I've never been a color person myself. It's always been blacks and blues, even when I was younger. As I inch closer to 30, I've added a little color... but mostly a slightly lighter blue than the go-to dark blue, and even a deep purple. I have a green shirt somewhere in my clothes pile that I pull out on occasion. The only reason I bought it was because it was on clearance at ShopKo and it actually went below my hips to cover the tush rather than sit on top of it all.

Black is just so much easier to deal with.
