It’s a wintery Saturday. Somehow you’ve been able to arrange child care for the day to attend a watercolor workshop, Painting the Landscape, held in an historic mansion surrounded by pine forest.
Yikes! What to wear?
Three levels of leisure-wear:
- Active Leisure = sport-specific athletic clothing (track or yoga pants, runners, ski-gear, etc).
- Outdoor Leisure = clothing inspired by outdoorsy sports (i.e. flannel and polar fleece).
- Everyday Leisure = sportswear separates worn informally (jeans, t-shirt, and sneakers, no jacket).
Honestly, although necessarily many people spend the majority of life in the dressier – and more fun – clothing categories, IMHO, a vast number of offenses occur in the leisure categories. Offenses like: wearing clothes with big holes in them – EVER, wearing “slob casual” when one of the above classifications is called for, or wearing one of the above instead of professional clothing. Do I harp on this topic too much?
Back to our scenario. What would you wear to such an activity?
