Another month gone, and I'm a bit late reporting in, but I definitely could use a distraction this afternoon, so here I am.

1. Still not buying much. No pandemic rebound shopping for me yet. I added one item to my wardrobe--the Charlie scarf--bringing me up to twelve for the year. I actually debated whether to count my new filtered mask scarf as a wardrobe item at all, since I don't count masks, but I ultimately decided it's as much scarf as mask, so into the spreadsheet it went.
2. (Mostly) practical purchases. Photo one is from my tracking spreadsheet. A full quarter of my 2020 purchases are already past the 30-wears mark. Two more are super close. The items on the lower end were either a) bought recently, b) just coming into season, or c) in the case of the wrap belt, bought pre-pandemic and less useful for staying home.
3. Hitting a boredom wall. I just haven't had the energy and motivation to play in my wardrobe and try new things. That's energy has gone to other creative endeavors, but I miss the fun of getting dressed to go somewhere. As I said last month, LA is still in the most restrictive tier of California's "slow and stringent" reopening plan. I don't expect this to change anytime soon, but I'm seriously thinking about adding something festive and fun to wear at home for the holiday season. I'm open to suggestions.
4. Oddly disinterested. Even though I feel like I could use something new and exciting, nothing in particular has piqued my interest, despite the massive volume of catalogs arriving in my mailbox each day. This could be because it's still too warm for winter clothes to be appealing or because we usually have some upcoming travel or events and don't this year or because I've lost the ability to imagine myself wearing something out in the world.

So that's that, I guess. Not buying much, wanting something but not sure what, wearing what I have.
