My closet and drawers do hold about six white shirts. My Mom is a big fan of the classic, crisp white top. I do think the white shirt look works for anyone, but who we are and our skin tone depends on what we pair the top with. I like wearing a white shirt with red, brown, or (surprise!) even orange pants. Too much of one neutral colour washes me out and I feel boring. I think two extreme colours (like white, orange or red) contrast well. I am no "fashionista" but I do try to wear clothes that show my sunny side.
My new shirt is a white three quarter length top with funky, orange, pink and brown flowers on it. I am hoping to go for the retro chic look. I am planning to wear a new pair of brown pants with my shirt.
This weekend I am going to a baptism for a baby girl with the Observer and his family. I have never met the baby, but I hear she is beautiful. All babies are. Being around babies, children, and elderly makes me smile. Each population is at the extreme end of life - the beginning and the end. Maybe I am attracted to extreme stuff - like the colour orange or red. Isn't that ironic since life is about finding balance? Perhaps I am meant to be a little colourful.
