I know it is almost winter (and the temperatures definitely reflect that fact) but today I am going to review my selection of shorts. Perhaps it is easier to be rational about clothes in the opposite season?
Once again, I will catalogue everything that are shorts regardless of the state of them.
Good casual shorts – 3 pairs – black, white and khaki in the same style.
PROS – colour, fit
DECISION – they all stay – basis of my summer casual wardrobe
Rugby knit shorts x 2 – grey and red
PROS – comfortable, worn at home
CONS – 11 years old, paint-spattered
DECISION – keep wearing until they wear out
Refashioned shorts from some hiking pants
PROS – super comfortable and lightweight
CONS – generally worn at home or locally
DECISION – keep wearing them
PROS – hardly worn
CONS – not sure how much I will wear these
DECISION – reassess my swimwear/board shorts when it gets closer to summer
Today I heard of someone planning an overseas trip who thought 1 pair travel pants, 3 pairs jeans, 3 pairs cargo pants and a skirt was a reasonable number of ‘bottoms’ to pack. I don’t even own 3 pairs of jeans!! When I hear stories like that I know that I do not really have a lot of clothes.
