Phasing in some minimalism
Next are the outer layers. Not a deal in summer, but for most of the year I’m going to want to have another layer either on me or easily accessible. I have blazers, cardis, wraps, jackets, coats and jumpers. Okay, now this is getting difficult.
Looking in my wardrobe, I realised that I forgot that I had a suit. I’ll have to keep that, it’s my power outfit. I’m not going to count it in the tally since it’s not going to be in regular use. I feel like I’m cheating already. Oh well. Back to the outer layers.
Since I can’t decide where to start, I’ll start culling from each section:
Cardis: I have seven. I love cardis, they’re so portable and easy and they come in every colour. But I guess I don’t need seven. I’ll only keep four.
Blazers: Ignoring the one with the suit, I have 2 and one I never wear. That was easy.
Wraps: Should I count these as outer layers, or accessories? I guess they are layers. I can’t part with any of them, I’ll have to keep all three.
Jumpers: I didn’t wear either of them last winter. Out they go!
Coats: Workwear-wise, I have two. A light one and a heavy one. So I’m keeping both of those.
Okay, that’s a start! What do you think? How many work items do you have?
