A few weeks ago I decided to transition from
Blackberry to Nokia Windows.
I downloaded a few games and got hooked on
Alpha Jax, a game similar to Scrabble.
While playing I realized that other participants had avatars
and I did not, so I decided to create one.
After choosing skin, hair and eye color came the clothes.
What would my avatar wear ?
So I turned and asked the person next to me,
"What do you think my avatar should wear ?
DO you like this ?"
and I pointed to my avatar wearing a skirt and a top.
He looked at me and answered
"Something layered, you always wear something with a cardigan or
jacket over it, you always layer "
I do it without noticing or even thinking about it.
It comes natural.
So I went back and looked at my outfits on the blog
and the truth hit me...
I layer to go to work.
I wear cardigans with trousers.
I wear cardigans with skirts and over dresses.
Well, maybe I have en excuse here... the air conditioner is freezing at work.
I wear layers over tshirts or button down shirts with jeans.
I wear jackets over tanks and tube tops.
I do it on the weekends too.
Oh and over jumpsuits too.
I even wore a cardi to go to the beach...
I think I suffer from layer-itis.
Now, seriously, is there anything that you gravitate towards
when putting an outfit together?
