Welcome to November. I hope everyone had a Happy Halloween! I sure did…
Mr. Backbone dressed as a hunter and I let him chase me around in the smokey night air with an axe. I know. I’m an amazing wife…
I bought the deer antlers at a State Forest gift shop last summer. I always buy stupid things just because they are…stupid.
I usually dress for Halloween, even if it’s only to pass out candy. One little girl told her mom that I was a reindeer. Awe…..Obviously, the axe was put safely away by then.
The cool thing about Halloween is that you can be practically anything or anyone you want to be, temporarily. Conceal your identity, disappear, take on an alter ego, have fun in masquerade. When I’m in costume, my personality does sort of change based on my appearance. Last night, my animal instincts were in high gear.
Does the same concept hold true on a regular day-to-day basis? When you dress like a professional, do you feel more business-minded? When you lace up your shoes for a run, do you feel more athletic? In formal wear, do you act more grown up and serious?
We live in a society where we have the freedom to dress…pretty much…any way we want. And…we do…some to greater extremes than others. Look in your closet – what’s in there? Like it or not, your wardrobe is an expression of your personality. I just took a peek into mine. Yep…it certainly says a lot about me. It’s also telling me that my collection of clothes needs to grow up a little. Too many tank tops. Too many printed tee-shirts. Not enough outfits that say I’m a professional woman making a mark on the world. It’s time to start making a change.
What do the contents of your closet say about you? Is it right?
