-Stick with my list.
-Use what I have...tweak slowly + only if necessary.
-Keep it fair.
-Goal: all tops go with all bottoms.
-Voile tank was packed away, since it only matched one pair of shorts.
-My shorts felt too big to wear out of the house...so often I changed into pants to go out.
-Clog sandals are not comfortable for walking long distances (for me).
-Four tops are enough :: I still don't really know how this works, but that's the magic of it. With four people to do laundry for, I always have a clean top to wear!
-I don't have to wash my tops after every wear, even though it's hot. Thank you, deodorant.
-The clothes that I already have (+ think I don't love) are usually better than the clothes that I think I want.
Some other (not so positive) discoveries:
-Shorts that I feel good about wearing in public are hard to find...but would be so beneficial.
-Finally found some more comfortable sandals...and then never wore my clog sandals again.
-Online shopping sometimes (really) stinks. This summer brought out all the worst in my hopeful online purchases...vintage with undisclosed issues, sandals that made me feel like I have crazy feet, and all the things with unpredictable sizing.
-Sewing doesn't always yield what I want to wear. (Although 3 of my pieces are last year's makes.)
Switches I'd very much like to make/made ::
olive shorts out (too big) :: would like a pair of high-waisted, comfy, good looking shorts
voile tank out (only matched olive shorts) :: would like a top that makes shorts wearable out
clog sandals out (not comfortable for walking) :: comfortable sandals in
What did you learn from your relationship with your wardrobe this season?
P.S. If I don't say this often enough, I apologize. I want to be clear that there is no perfect number of pieces of clothing to own...there is no race to the least number of pieces possible. What I share here is just my own journey toward finding my personal sweet spot of enough. :)
