In these stressful days, a little closet cleaning helps me to get a grip on things. And makes me feel that order can prevail. If only in my spring closet.
I’ve been doing my spring fashion research. Scoping out the trends, and surveying my closet. Deciding what I will wear, and what I won’t this season.
Wearing spring colours is sparking joy for me this week. Among other things.
My midwinter slow fashion initiative is to shop my closet and wear all my winter clothes before spring. Especially my coats. Especially my old coats.
Inspired by my favourite Youtube channels, I’m playing with jewellery this week. Rummaging through my collection and trying to wear what I own.
I’ve spent way too much time on the couch this winter, with one cold or another. I needed some fashion inspiration to finally get me off the couch and back in action.
For someone who loves clothes and make-up, and who stresses over my hair, I’m strangely not worried about being ski chic, or not.
I love cashmere sweaters with whatever. With jeans and boots or skirts, tweed jackets or down coats. But it has to be good quality cashmere.
In between being a poor student, an underpaid young teacher, and an aspiring ethical shopper, I had a few indulgent years. The years when I had enough money to buy what I wanted. And did.
I’m taking wardrobe inventory this week. Looking at what I bought in 2019, and assessing how I’m doing in my efforts to be a more ethical shopper.
