Status at Two MonthsPosted: November 2, 2011
I promised pictures of outfits, didn’t I?! I know.
I still remember reading Seventeen magazine as a teenager. I loved those articles where they took ten basic pieces and made 30 outfits out of them. Honestly, that’s how I thought it would be with 36/365. I chose my basic pieces with all these cute outfits in mind. But, day in and day out, I just keep wearing the same thing- which you’ve already seen.
This is where the rubber meets the road. Ideas versus reality. I know that I’m only two months into it, but there are versatile pieces that I just haven’t touched. My denim skirt. My black maxi skirt. I rarely wear my white cotton blouse. Why? Because I really like my jeans. They’re comfortable and cute. I love wearing a t-shirt layered with a fitted sweater and a cardigan if it’s chilly. I keep wearing the same two scarves- because they’re more comfortable and flattering than my other two scarves. I’ll leave it to you to decide if I’m pragmatic or lazy- but, it’s working for me.
I’m not tiring of my wardrobe. It’s plenty. I could shrink it even more and be just fine. Everything fits and works together. I have some things that I think I’ll do differently if I do this again. We’ll see how things settle in, though. I’ll keep you posted, but so far I’m loving the simplicity of 36/365.
