On a scale of “pajama pants at noon” to “owning a blazer,” how adult are you?
I’m at a solid five since I am currently wearing pajama pants at noon but I also just got a blazer in the mail. My very first blazer. Like a freakin’ grown up. Now all I need is a pair of (non-pajama) plaid pants and I’ll be set. Yes, this comes with a story.
The other day, I was talking with a few writery friends about what an author’s uniform would look like. We looked up a number of “author lookbooks” and I noticed that the one thing they had in common was… plaid pants. Is that the equivalent of a badge? Maybe the pattern or color depicts what type of writer you are. Does the red/black plaid mean you write horror? And the beige/black say you’re a literary writer? But then I thought, What kind would I wear?
Why… these, of course:
But then, What type of writer would I be?
The comfortable type.
So what color/pattern of plaid would you wear? Do you have a blazer? Where are you on the pajama-blazer scale?
