February was a very busy month with lots of wardrobe ins and outs for me.


Due to wear I exited my red silk blouse (2010), my blue floral dress (2016 thrifted) my pewter slides (2017) and my black cotton sweater (2019). The first three I was really sad to see moved on but they were DONE. I also exited the floral blouse (2019) - I no longer feel great in it. And somehow I have lost the navy tee - I think I left it at the beach but it may turn up....(I hope so).

As Jenn said in her post it is sad when a favourite wears out. I had already replaced the slides with white birks. The dress - I think the sage green one has taken the role but it is very different. But that's okay - I have other options.

I am looking for a dressy blouse and a long sleeve black cotton top to replace the red silk and the black cotton. Both definite gaps that I will miss as we move to April.


Well mostly gear! The two tops and the bike pants were gaps due to wear in my gear capsule, the leggings were a pure WANT. But they are getting worn.

I found this navy blue blouse from NZ ethical label Recreate - made in Cambodia. I have worn it three times to date and love it. You can see in the photos two ways I have worn the blouse, but it works with white jeans and skirts too.

All the February additions have been worn, most three plus times, the bike shorts only once though.

Plan for March

March and April are usually glorious here - late Indian Summer and early autumn - clear days, cool nights. I am sitting here today in shorts and a tee, but at some stage the days won't feel right for high summer clothes and I will bring in boots again and try to remember how to tie a scarf.

I have enjoyed my wardrobe this summer - there have been a couple of things that haven't been worn at all (lack of occasion mostly) but in general I have found style and fashion simple (despite life actually being rather complicated in February on the work front!)

I am generally open to ideas at the moment for shopping. Top of my list is a black long sleeve top, a work blouse that works with both black and white trousers, and a puffer jacket, I will see what takes my fancy. Any ideas of things that you think might suit me?

Thanks for looking.
