I've been enjoying this yearlong challenge of limiting purchases. I chose to add three items per month which is about 1/5 of my total. I like variety and about 175 items seems to work for me. I've been sticking to a tight color palette of black, blue, gray, and white and now have a good basic group of wardrobe items in these colors. I do have some items in olive, red, and beige and enjoy wearing them but this month I decided I wanted even more color. I also need to beef up my cold weather capsule because of my move. So, this month I purchased two oversize cardigans. When they arrived, I thought that they looked huge but after trying them on, I decided I liked the look. I tried them with black Banana Republic HR skinny pants today but will try them with ink, white, and pale blue pants, too. My third purchase was my favorite bra from NAS. Styling ideas would be appreciated. What do you think about adding sneakers in burgundy and reddish rust?
