|White // Gray // Navy Blue // Deep Red // Light Pink|
I've thought a good several weeks about what colors define my wardrobe. I think about the colors that make me happy. I think about colors that I do not want to wear. I think about the colors that have held up over the years. I also consider which colors I always go for when shopping. I'm a habitual person and change as I might, I will return to what I like. There's an ounce of unintentional rhyme in this but I like the rythm it creates. I'm going somewhere with this.
I mentioned a journal I have and use in jotting thoughts or notes about fashion. Well, I have a section of scribbles in attempt to narrow down my color palette. It's title reads "What Colors Do I Wear" and then all chaos follows. Basically I listed every color I could think of, because defining myself is impossible. At the top are White and Gray. They never fail me. Adjacently noted are Khaki and Cream with a caption reading "neutrals", as if to remind myself of their purpose. Then I list all favorite colors across the spectrum, from pink to blue. The point of the exercise was lost on me. I don't know what I'm doing.
