So. I wore similar “colors” in my outfit yesterday, and we’re all still here. Hooray! *rolls eyes* – yes, I knew we would be, I knew the world wouldn’t come to an end if I wore variations of olive green in TWO pieces in my outfit today, but still. I can’t say it wasn’t a struggle to pull it off. I’m sure no one even noticed…and frankly, once I left the house, I didn’t either.
Am I cured? I don’t know…I’ll have to keep pushing myself, but this is a good first step, I think.
I’m really really pleased with the PS1, it’s just as practical as I thought it would be, with all it’s pockets, but I don’t understand the shoulder strap. It’s very narrow and not very long. Also, the buckle sits right at my shoulder, which could become uncomfortable without so many layers on. I don’t understand why they didn’t add a slightly wider strap, and even allow it to be adjustable a bit longer. I will probably switch the strap that comes with it to my black, wider strap that goes on my Jas M.B bag for comfort, and if I’m going to be carrying it for any length of time at all. But…really…I wish bag designers paid more attention to the strap. It’s pretty important in my opinion.
The Everlane sweater has become my “coat” lately (it’s back in stock in the women’s version, gray, size large), I’m really pleased with it. It was 30 degrees yesterday and I was (mostly) warm enough with a t-shirt, cashmere and this cardigan on top. It’s really thick and cozy, so it’s perfect for cold weather. It wouldn’t do for anything below 30, but then again, if it’s that cold, I’m not leaving the house…
This weekend, I plan on tackling a few areas of my life/home that need tidying, starting with more clothes and shoes. And ending with papers and books. I’m going to write a review of The Life Changing Magic of Tidying Up next Thursday and want to report on my experiences with it…I hope you’ll chime in with some of your own too, if you’ve read the book and tried her methods. I’m excited. But also terrified, as Christine and I commiserated in the comments on yesterday’s post.
What are your plans this weekend? who has read Mari Kondo’s book?
