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!
