As of late, I've been pondering over my wardrobe. What things mesh well, what makes my day, and what has me questioning why I bought them. I also find when I evaluate my wardrobe it helps me better understand what is a want and what is a need and what I should really let go of.
So, if I were to take a quick look at my wardrobe and not get distracted by all the lovely frills within I find an array of colors and prints that I've picked up over the course of the last 10 or so years. I have plenty of colors to work with and over the last two years, thankfully, been focusing on the purchases involving blouses and, for once, brand socks. I usually prefer tights and stockings to coord with my wardrobe pieces but I'm finding the weather is better permitted to socks. But what is it that I should really focus on?
I'm finding that I need to go with maybe more solids and florals lately, not simply for my adoration of classic but it's simply how I've been feeling more lately. I have only a few eye~catching sweet pieces but they've always been of a more mixed style, like the wine colored Kumya~chan Trick~or~Treat jsk. Basically, if I'm heading into Sweets~ville, population: me, I should always endeavor for the darker hues or the colorways that can be dubbed that mixed style classic/sweet.
Another thing that I should focus on is perhaps skirts, different cut black and cream blouses, and vests. Recently, I have picked up a few Triple Fortune skirts and find I really enjoy the vested look. If I could make myself a few vests in different styles it would benefit my wardrobe, for sure.
If I were to think about taking out anything at all, which is very difficult for me as I've grown attached, would be to rid my wardrobe of any pale blues. I don't have a great deal of blues but I'm finding I'm not feeling it, sadly.
