You Always Wear Such Bright Clothes

And here I have once again broken a promise of writing once a week but I will try and be better. Here is a new entry to my 30 day challenge.

The second entry was to be to write about something that somebody said to me and I never forgot. This is something that my brother-in-law once said to me. At the time he was only my sister’s boyfriend. I had bought myself a “Svea”-hat and he said: “I am disappointed in you for buying such a teenager piece of clothes. You always wear such bright clothes and now you’ve given into the pressures of being a teenager.”

I did not see it as an insult. I chose to concentrate on the part where he was proud of me usually being brave enough to wear clothes that make me stick out in a crowd. I love colors and to this date I wear brightly colored clothes. And contrary to his belief, I did not buy the hat because it was popular among people my age at the time, I bought it because I liked the shape and texture of the hat.

I have since lost the hat, but these words always stayed with me.
