is this was a good number of items...if not where could i adjust?
~i feel like this is a good number of items for me. i could possibly stand another top, or just to love a couple of the ones i have just a little bit more in the cold.
~this number may seem extravagant to some, and it may seem paltry to others. it worked well for me this season with my lifestyle.
did i like all of the pieces and silhouettes that i had? if not, what ones might i like to try next time?
what did i buy/make this season?
~the only new items in this season's wardrobe were the two linen tops that i sewed and the see-sun top that i bought.
~that fact feels really good to me.
what will likely need to be replaced next winter?
~possibly the striped tees
~the see-sun top and indigo tee might work better in other seasons
~possibly the grey cardigan
what notes do i have for my future self?
~you have to wear socks, even though you don't like them. it's cold.
~clogs to slide socked feet into for drop-off/pick-ups??
~long-sleeved warm jumpsuit??
~you really like to wear leggings, even though you pretend to be more diverse than that at first thought of winter. :)
~a pair or two of hand knit socks could be nice
do i need to let some pieces go at the end of this season?
~i've still got a little ways to go, but i don't think i have anything really needing to go right now. i'll hold on to what i have and then be able to replace what needs to be replaced little by little next season.
~knowing what things i'm thinking of replacing will let me be on the lookout for them as the season nears.
how do i need to prepare these pieces for storage? any repairs?
~this year, i think i'll try hand washing my sweaters that need it before storing them. (as opposed to "green" dry-cleaning)
~make another lavender sachet for storage.
~store wool sweaters in my suitcase to keep moths away.
i will try to do the same with the other clothes in the house- with the corresponding owners. it feels good to have this assessment under my belt before thinking of the next season's pieces.
happy leap day!
