When I first wore this cardigan, I mentioned that it had been hanging in my closet for a while because I was unsure about how to style it with anything but "like colors." So, I thought I'd exhaust all possibilities with "like colors" until I got some inspiration otherwise. Did you know how much navy, pink, and white I have in my closet? I might never have to change it up with other colors.
I've also mentioned before about how I tend to overthink things--and I tend to go out of my way to avoid the obvious "typical" pairings. I had a revelation the other night when Fins and I played "Scattergories" with another couple. Scattergories is basically a game that, within a certain time limit, you have to create examples of a topic that starts with a specific letter (Example: Topic Animals, Letter K--I'd come up with "koala").
I spent most of the time trying to stay away from the obvious answer, only to write it down and discover that it was, in fact, a unique response (everyone else put "kangaroo"). I always try to challenge myself out of a comfort zone...and most of the time it's unnecessary.
In a profession that constantly challenges me to think outside of the box and plan for the unexpected, thinking inside the box is okay sometimes.
Lifelong learner, I am.
