This is totally random, but I was catching up on old episodes of Californication last night (I’m not liking season 3 very much…) and Hank takes Becca to buy clothes and doesn’t understand that she wants to buy a transparent shirt for $200+ and says that he’s a man, he has a uniform. Which made me think about my uniform.
I’ve talked about my uniform before, it’s usually a skirt/jeans, tee, and cardigan/sweater in black, gray or white. And I really believe that most of my problems in life stem from having TOO MANY things that DON’T fit my “uniform.” I get stressed out when I look in my closet and see so much stuff…I’m paralyzed. If I just had a few pairs of jeans, basic tees & my cashmere sweaters in my closet, life would be so much easier! I waste way too much time and energy trying to be “cute” or unique or different – and right now, I NEED that time & energy (for the Texas Style Council blogger conference :)).
This will be my uniform for a while – jeans (these are Current/Elliot and I’ve been living in them), tank or a tee (right now I’m wearing a Vogel10 bra cami) + cashmere sweater (this one is actually my very 1st cashmere sweater – by Theory!) and Repetto BB flats. END OF STORY. It’s a good, classic, comfortable look – what else do I need?
Maybe I’ll do what Nanashi did and take stuff out of my closet and only start putting it back in if I miss it or want to wear it. Otherwise, I need to GET RID OF STUFF. Minimize my closet. Life would be so much easier….
Do you have a uniform? What is it?
