In celebration of Slow Fashion October, I thought I'd keep track of the outfits I wear in order to highlight the enoughness of the clothes already in my closet. I want to focus on contentedness + appreciating what I already own...this month + every day.
This week's stand-out :: my vintage army pants. They are taking the place of jeans in my closet (at least until I find some jeans that are this comfortable). I've been loving high waisted pants again for a while + these are super high. :) They make belts obsolete + ensure that everything is always securely covered. They are soft + have comfortable straight legs. I think they look cooly casual with everything from tees to cashmere. I hemmed mine at the ankle baring length that I think looks best on me.
Dressing with less, learned :: Having thought through each piece + having just what I love makes getting dressed satisfying + pleasurable. I truly love having just what I need + not too much extra. Enough is so good.
Disclaimer :: Again, these are not style posts (maybe that's obvious). :) I'm not making any special effort to wear every piece that I own or have made (for Slow Fashion October). This is just what I'd be wearing anyway. :) This is not a boast about how fair my wardrobe is...I just added those notes because that's what we're talking about this month. I want to share (with myself too) that a simple, mostly fair/slow fashion wardrobe slowly put together over time (+ with a budget) is possible. And that less is enough.
