Since my post last week about simple living, I’ve been thinking about areas in my life that need simplifying. My wardrobe came to mind and I was once again reminded that until I choose a base color and color scheme, my wardrobe will remain complicated.
When I first came across this idea of choosing a color scheme, I mentally chose black/gray and my base color. But I never actually went through my closet and pulled out the brown/khaki clothes.
18 pieces of clothing, 3 pair shoes and various socks/tights.
This was a bit hard for me as some of these items are my favorites. I love my long brown skirt and my brown boots. Also, some of these items are fairly new.
But having a wardrobe with two separate color schemes really complicates things. When I traveled to Illinois last month, I found myself needing two pair of sandals – one pair black, one pair brown – to match my clothes. I ended up not caring and just took one pair, but I still spent time trying to figure it all out.
So I’m doing an experiment. I’ve packed up all the above into a storage container and setting it out of sight.
My husband will be pleased (I think) as brown is not his favorite color for me to wear.
