Last year I joined the 6 items challenge, wearing just 6 items from my wardrobe for 6 weeks. This really was a challenge for me, I didn’t include my jeans and really missed them. Also the wear and tear on my denim skirt was noticeable.
What I actually wear week to week this time of year is:
- denim skirt
- cerise linen skirt
- long navy cardigan
- hand knitted purple cardigan
- burgandy long sleeve tee shirt
- navy long sleeve tee shirt
- grey long sleeve tee shirt
- navy jacket
- a dress
Until recently I have had no dress, I decided the Nomad one really was a bit too short. This has been rectified by making my new blue cotton jersey dress. The navy jacket only gets worn occasionally, usually with jeans at the weekend. If I manage without them, I only need to loose 2 more. I can do without 1 of the tee shirts, but which cardigan? only the navy really goes with my new dress, but I prefer the purple handknit with my denim skirt hmmmm…
I was seriously considering opting out this year, as I missed wearing my Navy jacket last year, it only gets worn Spring and Autumn. I had a re-think and will try to manage without jeans again!
Here’s my final list:
- Navy jacket
- Purple cardigan
- Denim skirt
- Grey long sleeve tee shirt
- Burgandy long sleeve tee shirt
