Red Hot

Red is one of my favourite colours.  The colour of passion and anger.  While it would be dramatic to say that I wore red today because I was feeling passionate or angry, nothing would be further from the truth.  Here is the banal truth: I wanted to wear this pleated skirt today.  It is a recent purchase and it only came in red.  I couldn't think of anything else to wear with this red pleated skirt but some kind of red blouse.  This blouse is the only red blouse that I have with short sleeves.  I have more red blouses/shirts with long sleeves, but it was going to be way too hot today to even contemplate wearing a long sleeve blouse/shirt.  (However, now that I am thinking about my long sleeve red blouses/shirts, I think that they would look good with this skirt.  I will have to file away those possible outfits for cooler days.)  (In case anyone is wondering why I couldn't contemplate wearing a long sleeve shirt when I wore a jacket, the jacket was a necessity for my overly air-conditioned office.  It was doffed any time I set foot outdoors.)  So there you have it, the mystery behind today's outfit.  No passion, no anger and no drama.  Okay, maybe some passion ... as always ... for clothes.
