Ooops, it's nearly Spring, and I have a day or so to post my winter skeleton wardrobe.
Actually, it's exactly the same as the autumn skeleton wardrobe with the addition of:
Black winter coat
Black puffy parka. I had to get new metal poppers put on it at the cobbler's shop at the beginning of the season.
I wear one of these coats every single day in winter, with a selection of scarves from the autumn wardrobe.
And some shoes:
Black boots, brown boots and hiking shoes, which do very little hiking, and a lot of tripping along suburban pavements in the rain.
So, why the skeleton wardrobe? Well, I really hate shopping for clothes. Uggh, all that dressing and undressing and unflattering changing room mirrors. So a couple of years ago I decluttered my wardrobe, and realised I only really wore a few of my favourites. So that's all I kept. Now I have a few clothes. They are mostly black or neutral. They work very hard because I wear them all the time. It could be seen as a bit boring. OK, it is, but I have an outfit for every occasion. Yes, one. And I have a really roomy wardrobe!
And occasionally, I buy something new, and it is super exciting, and generally goes with lots of other things I already have, so I get a dozen new outfits. So much fun!
