Bright Conventions

The nice thing about the color black is that it manages to effortlessly match nearly everything in my wardrobe while giving me a cover story for any “unconventional” outfit I may wear. This basically means I can be cuddly in my green sweater, throw on a floor length skirt, call myself polished and then have an answer for why I am dressed as such. So, when a classmate of mine asks why I’m “dressed up” I can promptly say that this is the only skirt I own that is dark enough to match my soul. Of course, that is a lie. I just like wearing sweaters with skirts and this skirt is lovely because it is both a maxi skirt and a mini skirt at the same time, but the made up answer garners much more interesting reactions.101 102
