I reveled at how I wouldn't dare wear the same clothes to other occasions.
Because of the insouciant dress code (I actually think there is none), I'm beginning to experiment a little bit. Of the Fall 2011 trends that I saw, I chose to incorporate colorblocking. You might argue it would be easy for me because I love fashion and have a quasi articulation of all the colors that traipsed down the catwalk. Quite frankly I thought that too, but let's face it: I am no color dude.
But here I was, in front of my closet, ready to pick an orange henley, blueberry wide-legged pants, a cream blazer with the slightest (and I mean it's almost invisible) pattern, and a screaming yellow parka reserved for the blistering thunderstorm. And I wore them. At the same time.
It's nothing extreme, but I thought about it for a moment and reveled at how I wouldn't dare wear the same ensemble to other occasions. It's too colorful for church, it's too dressy for school, and it's too kooky for business events. But you know what, I had fun with it. I walked down the financial district and many people looked at how bon vivant and kick butt I looked.
