My uniform in winter: black turtleneck sweater + jeans. I am free to get messy in my work, run out to Target, walk up to the mailbox, eat my lunch, design new stuff, help at school. I have been doing some thinking about how having this "uniform" is liberating, rather than restricting. I've also been considering how I can extend the uniform concept into the rest of my day. (Keri Smith calls this a "clothing system" -- clothes that work, that don't have to be considered each & every time you put them on. Clothes that can be uniquely embellished for each outing.) Then there is this timely article in the Minneapolis Star Tribune. I dare you to read it and not be just a little bit obsessed with it.
Do you have a uniform? A clothing system? Tell me about it! Comment by end of day Friday; I'll draw a winner to receive a wee little package of treats.
