A Touch of Embellishment

One of the things that I swore when I got a real job was that I wasn’t going to always wear black and white. “How incredible boring.” “How un-blogger to only wear black and white.” Yet, almost a month into working full-time I am here to report that I have had to write several Post-It notes reminding myself to not wear so much freaking black and white. And if I insist upon doing so, it cannot simply be just black and white. There must be an added touch or point of interest.

 My boss just gets dressed in the morning. I have a philosophical conversation with myself at 6 am about what wearing black and white for the second day in a row says about me. Oy. The differences between men and women.
