As promised the other day, here is the first of a series about my small selection of clothes and how I make them work.
I read recently that someone expected that every item of clothing needed to be able to be incorporated into 3 different outfits to justify having the item in her cupboard. I decided to test this theory and here are some of the results.
The first item I chose was my green jeans.
The great thing about this exercise is that it actually makes you think outside the box. I have actually worn outfits 1 and 2 but outfit 3 was created purely as a result of this exercise. I like the look of it and will definitely try it out.
Some items will easily give you 3 or more options while others will be a bit more of a challenge. I am not just going to showcase the easy choices. Each day I will select one of the pieces I used as my next base. Tomorrow will be 2 more ways of wearing the striped shirt which you saw in Outfit 2 today.
I look forward to hearing your comments on my choices and if you have any strategies for making sure that your wardrobe items earn their keep.
Finally, I want to thank you all for your thoughts and prayers for my sister-in-law. Her condition remains very serious and we continue to pray for her.
