The rules are changing. Unfortunately, someone asked a wardrobe question at choir, and the answer knocked half my planned summer wardrobe out the window. Because the question 'Can we wear outfits of the color-of-the-month, or does it have to be the base color on the bottom and the current color on the top?' was asked, we've now been told to wear base on the bottom and contrast on the top. Dunno how that ruling would affect the wearing of dresses.
And color chips of the khaki we're to wear went 'round last night, too...and it's darker than my silk twill skirt. The cotton/lycra twill I also got at Atlanta is the right color, but it's still in yardage form and there's NO time between now and Sunday to sew it into anything; I'll just have to wear the lighter color and hope that standing in the back row will camoflage it enough until I have time to get the other stuff made up.
It looks like we're slowly headed towards 'matching' instead of just 'coordinating' in our wardrobing. I hope that doesn't happen because the only time I dress up is for church; if we go to choir 'uniforms' I will only need dressy clothes for the occasional wedding, funeral, or date w/ DH.
And that would make me sad.
