So. As I was going through my clothing to decide what to keep or get rid of (what’s for sale: clothing & bags) – and trying everything on in the process – I realized that I had largely abandoned what was once my uniform of cardigans and tank tops. Several years ago I specifically remember posting an outfit of a JP skirt, tank & cardigan proclaiming that it was what I wanted to live in. Forever.
Uh…dramatic, yes, but also true. Back then, I wore cardigans mostly as a way to cover myself up. I don’t need to do that so much now, but I still like the look of layering. No, actually, I LOVE TO LAYER. I did much more layering before we moved to Texas though; it’s really hot here.
Anyway, I pulled out some of the cardigans (a couple of T by Alexander Wang cardigans that I really love) I’d stashed away and haven’t worn for some time to remember to wear again. This Zara one I do wear quite a bit (I think I got it last year during their sale?), but it’s sort of itchy. I’d love to find a replacement for it that’s softer, more drapey and maybe a bit higher quality. But I’m not in a hurry.
Have you recently re-discovered something you used to enjoy wearing but don’t so much anymore? Or had forgotten about?
That’s something I’m really enjoying about this wardrobe purge: now I can get back to wearing the things I REALLY love, instead of the “new” stuff I acquired recently. Things I bought for some other reason…
