Angie's blog post prompted me to do some thinking about the new year and the closet. I have started watching the Kondo tidying series on Netflix and need to finish my closet edit, especially before even thinking of adding anything but replacements. Of course, jeans need to be replaced for higher rises. I think this is going to involve lots of trying on and alterations.
First up is the mid winter closet. My plan is to experiment with different neutrals together, especially black and navy and browns. I have very limited browns in the closet and need to decide if I will allow more and which ones. Dark chocolate brown used to be a favorite as my eyes are dark brown, but the color is just so-so with my hair and skin. I am leaning more toward toffee and tans, but am not sure what I want. In February I will start wearing my cold spring items ( more color, but midtones and pastels). I think I am well supplied with summer items having moved to an area with less hot weather from one where summer was the dominant season. Now Transitional is dominant.
Your thoughts are always appreciated. Should I think about adding browns? If so, which shades do you think? Any other ideas?
Any ideas about the best brands of jeans to try for an insulin-induced tummy and no hips? I am finding higher rises that fit at the waist are too baggy in the rear and thighs.
