Today (Sunday) when I after a lovely weekend including for example meeting with friends and swimming in an outside pool sat down to write a blog post, I realized that I had photos from three different outfits to select from. It does not happens very often to me, but the weather (except on Saturday) and the light have been good the last days and that needs to be taken advantage of. It also feels good to have some outfit photos in reserve as I have already understood that this semester is going to be pretty busy.
This outfit is pretty similar to how I wore this dress last time (photos here), but I added a green bolero in case I would freeze. I bought this bolero for almost nothing several summers ago, but it has never made it into the blog before. It sometimes surprise me that despite that I blog quite regularly there are still pieces in my wardrobe that I have never shown on the blog, and that it probably means that I have a lot. Another sign of that I own a lot is that it happens that I end up wearing something else than I originally had in mind, because I could not find it in the wardrobe. I have also thought about how often I wear clothes or accessories that I bought recently. Of course, it is good that I wear those things that I have bought, but it also means that I buy a lot. This has made me think that I should take some time off from shopping, or at least have some restriction for a while, and mostly shop my closet. I am thinking about just allow myself a substantially smaller amount of money than I usually use for clothes, shoes, and accessories. However, before I get started I would really like to know if you have tried to have a shopping break/restriction, and what “rules” did you have? Did you manage to keep you promise or did you cheat, what worked and what did not work? If you already have written about it on your blog (because I know many have), leave a link if you like.
