Oh, yeah! I wear bright colors to work all the time (but I know that doesn’t exactly count)! I do feel, though, that I have to be in the right mindset to wear certain colors, if that makes any sense.
Colors are so expressive, aren’t they? Depending on how I feel, sometimes I think I unconsciously seek out colors that fit my mood, especially when it comes to clothes and makeup.
With makeup, like when I’m feeling really happy and jazzed about sitting down at my chair to work, I notice myself reaching for bright, cheerful pink or orange lipsticks — things like that — whereas when I’m feeling “blue” (ha!) or run down or just not really in the mood to work (also known as “dealing with Tabs’ crazy”), I usually won’t want to wear something bright or intense. Definitely no intense blue eye looks or neon pink lips.
I guess I wear my heart on my sleeve because you can usually tell how I’m feeling based on what I’m wearing that day.
As for clothing, yes, I do like wearing bright clothes, especially dresses, to work, but I don’t do it as often as I wear bright makeup.
What can I say? I wear a ton of black! Sometimes I feel like a New Yorker trapped in a California girl’s body. Black clothes are just so easy, chic, and you don’t really have to think about things too hard… Plus, black is slimming and hides the cat fur. Lots of positives.
I do love my bright accessories, though. Gimme a pair of hot pink shoes, a teal bib necklace or some yellow dangly earrings, and I’m a happy girl. But again, I feel the same way about bright accessories as I feel about bright makeup and clothes. It depends on my mindset or mood.
So, yes! To make a short answer really, really long…I love wearing bright makeup and clothes to work.
How about you? Do you wear bright colors (makeup and/or clothes) to school or work?
