There have been some casualties, my favourite pink merino wool jumper has shrunk! I am reduced to wearing the lovely charcoal grey merino wool jumper, bought second hand for my son, which I also managed to shrink. At least it fits me, even if any sense of style I might have had, seems gone, when wearing it, resurrected slightly by wearing my pretty lilac silk scarf.
When I got my autumn clothes out and laid them on the bed, I thought oh dear, that all looks rather dull, lots of navy, some grey and a splash of cerise. Of course once I got my scarves out, it all looked a lot more cheerful.
The other casualty was the shrinking of the Zara wool tee shirt, completely unwearable. I now have quite a selection of ‘felt’ ready for a tea cosy project, when I get time. This left me rather short of tops. I only had 3, the navy long sleeve, the grey long sleeve and the jade thermal long sleeved (jade doesn’t really go with much either) A charity shop search produced a mint green 3/4 length sleeve Noa Noa tee shirt and I succumbed to a brand new M&S long sleeved thermal in grey. Here are some old photos of things still in my wardrobe. next post will be the full list of the capsule wardrobe I have been wearing this autumn.
