The Accidental Icon blogger Lyn Slater defines rightness as: “The quality or state of being true.”
The word rightness: “Allows us to be in charge.” We take the reigns as well as the reins.
In alignment with Slater I’ve posted my own parade of Converse sneakers:
From left to right: colorful Mara Hoffman – Missoni stripes – navy blue – hot pink ballet.
My rightness has been having the courage to say: “This is it–no more jeans.”
It’s heretic to tell readers this yet I don’t like wearing jeans.
Blue jeans are supposed to be the Great Equalizer–a democratic wardrobe item because everyone wears them.
Only I wear denim at most once a week. What is right for each of us is unique to who we are.
The trick with jeans is to pair them with a sharp blouse or a better jacket.
Part of throwing off the shackles of guilt is to embrace your quirks.
Your “rightness” can change over the years.
Rightness is a state of mind as well as sartorial bent.
What’s right in your life? Find it and express it honestly.
Whether it’s flaunting a pair of shoes or curating a mood:
A woman has the right to be true blue in her own inimitable fashion.
