To lighten my mood, I created an outfit today. It is playful. The polar opposite of serious. My motivation is simply to be girly and play around. The outfit itself is a wacky mishmash but honestly the clothes are only an excuse to have some fun. Please don't judge this as a fashion ensemble; it isn't.
I paired an out-of-season orange Summer dress with throwback sparkly leggings from the Eighties. And if that isn't weird enough, I color-blocked orange and purple, accentuated by brightly-colored flats.
The best part of this is the gaiety it provides me. A recreational high. Pulling items from my closet, imagining them in various combinations, wondering what orange looks like next to purple, I squealed with delight. I like the sheen and ruching of the leggings. I'm enjoying that kind of thing.
Dressing up is a drug for me. Sometimes intoxicating, always enjoyable. I know my clothes scare the horses but they shouldn't be out of their stable in the first place...
