A quick post tonight!
I am thrilled to report that I haven’t shopped and/or bought clothing, shoes, or accessories for myself in TWO WHOLE WEEKS!! I’m not sure I’ve ever done that. I have no plans or desire to shop this week, either. I’m not really sure how this is possible, but I’m just going to go with it.
I am, however, planning a shopping trip in July. I’m wondering if I’ll end up not wanting to go when the time comes. Wouldn’t that be something?
Today, I had an appointment right in the middle of Shopping Central. I often schedule time for shopping before or after this appointment, and was trying to resist the temptation all week, but I really thought I was going to cave in. I’m so relieved to report that I did not shop! I drove straight to my appointment and drove straight home afterward. (It helps that it’s downpouring out there. I really dislike shopping in bad weather.)
Also, when I was choosing my outfit for the day, I picked a loose, drapey tee that became an instant favorite. I wear it all the time! When I looked in the mirror this morning, my first thought was that I should try to find another one just like it. Maybe two. Would two more be enough? Yes, I’d have three then. Good.
NOT good! That defeats the whole idea of a minimal wardrobe. No, if I want to wear a drapey tee, this shirt is what I need to wear. That’s how small wardrobes work, and that’s how I want my style mind to start working.
It’s going to be hard to undo all those years of clothing gluttony!
