She Decided to Branch Out…
She’s worn navy with pastels for decades… And she’s now ready for an update!
She’s always felt drawn to camel. The richness, the warmth, and elegance. And she’s been told repeatedly that it was a color that she could happily wear. But she starts small… something below the waist!
Success! But the real camel item that has always caught her eye is a lovely cardigan…
Now she’s feeling positively emboldened! She looks closely and her scarf and sees a beautiful shade of blue; would a matching sweater and flats be wrong?
But she’s not going to rely entirely new purchases – when she look in her closet, she realizes that her aqua sweater would be perfect with her new scarf!
At this point she feels so confident that she dares to BOTH wear a camel sweater without navy under it, and mix a printed scarf with a printed skirt! Is there nothing this heroine will not do?
Then she remembered a favorite image that she saw years ago on the Sartorialist…
If you have some idea of where you’re going, a small wardrobe adventure is never a bad idea!
p.s. Five years ago, I tried to distinguish between the French 5-Piece Wardrobe, the French 10 Piece Wardrobe, Project 333 and my capsule wardrobe.
p.p.s. A special thanks to Suzebabe, for letting me know that this post hadn’t “gone live” on time. It takes a village!
p.p.p.s. Check back tomorrow for a special tiny post, and a question…
