I’ve been shopping the heck out of my closet, and a few items have made it over the ‘30 wears’ benchmark. All my clothes are in good shape, and none need to be retired ATM. I have no absolute ‘needs’, but I’ve been wanting to shift my style, and this isn’t possible without the addition of new items.

I’m slowly overcoming my dislike of online shopping and made 3 (online) purchases in May. They are in a quieter palette, and 2 items are patterned. I’m still struggling with how to change the silhouette, but have settled on a colour trio (see pic#1) and plan to keep future purchases to this palette. #2 shows the colours of my closet blending old and new (black, lilac, red, gold/beige, white, olive, denim). #3 new items.

With the exception of a few really hot days, May has been cool. The outfit (#4) is typical of what I wore during the month. The bottoms in #5 have all passed the 30+ wears benchmark in 2020 and are already a year or two old. The tops in #6 have seen 10+ wears since the start of the year.

With no idea when salons will open up and my regular stylist on mat leave, I’ll have to find another. I’ll probably change up my hair style and start with a conservative trim that allows for pulling it into a ponytail. My current texture is most like #7 and #9. #11 is the dream!

There seem to be elements of Kibbe Natural or Soft Natural style?

Comments/suggestions very welcomed as this is all work in progress!
