I confess this topic is not original to me, but was posed by the eminent Edith Layton over on one of my favorite blogs, Word Wenches. She wondered what writers wore as they slaved away over their work. See Anne Hathaway as Jane Austen at left. (I'd be spilling ink on myself.)
Instead of a pristine white nightrail, I frequently wear a substantially hideous lime green nightgown, with darker green embroidered palm trees and pink flamingos. If it's chilly, I put on a lime green v-neck sweater over it. (I must match at all costs.) Sometimes I change to a pink gingham nightgown and a warm fuzzy pink robe, depending on what’s in the wash. You see, I write most often in the morning before I go to work, when the girls are free and the mind is fresh.
This summer I wasn't a complete slug. Sometimes I got dressed before noon. (Denim shorts and a tank top---not a pretty picture with the arm flab issue) In winter I wear jeans and an oversized sweater to hang around the house. I’m usually barefoot all year round, but I always wear lipstick to set that glamorous mood.
Do you have your own writer's uniform? What do you wear at home when you want to be comfy?
