This outfit was inspired by Michelle, who wears many more light colored neutrals than I do. In fact, I’ve been a little surprised at my somewhat lack of black lately since that’s my neutral go-to color. Maybe it’s because I’ve been in a better mood? Or because it’s spring and we may have squeaked by this year without having snow storms up until April? Either way I’m starting to want a few lighter colors.
So of course I went overboard and did a full-on neutral monchrome-ish outfit. I didn’t feel weird in it either. In fact, it felt very comforting. Maybe because the material was all very soft. Z even said I looked very “linen-y”.
I think the nice weather has also made me want to do another purge and cleaning of my closet. Since I’ve been on my shopping ban I’ve really scrutinized my wardrobe and wondered what do I really wear and what is actually necessary? It seems a little ridiculous after all this time to still not entirely know what’s “me”, but I guess that just means I’m always in an ever-changing version of myself. What was ME last year isn’t the ME of this year or even the ME of last season apparently. This does pose problems because it’s not healthy to constantly revamp my wardrobe based on mood swings. I’m still staunchly in the shopping ban camp and will stick to it. Perhaps after a full year I might be able to better assess what I have and myself.
