“And all at once, summer collapsed into fall.” Oscar Wilde
It’s autumn, it’s getting cooler and I feel a little in the doldrums.
Wardrobe wise, I mean.
Apart from a few house-hunting setbacks I am feeling in fit form. I am back at the gym, exercising well and showing some healthy restraint for what I eat and drink. When the mind is in gear, nothing can stop us and it feels wonderful to be driving the wellness agenda rather than letting life push the most important of all to the back of the queue.
Except, when it comes to my wardrobe, I am not entirely happy.
The new “feeling good” regime is encouraging a freshening up of my wardrobe. Most of my essentials are in ok shape and if not that’s an easy one to fix. Replacing more of the same doesn’t require too much energy or searching; when we know what we like and what works, that’s a wrap.
No it’s not that, it’s more I feel like a few new pieces to welcome in the autumn days and blow the fashion blah’s far away. Perhaps it’s watching all the shows in Paris – they do wet the appetite.
I am beginning to understand and accept the degrees of change with what I wear are narrowing. It is not boring and neither does it feel dull; it simply means I am happy with the way I dress. Not always, but more often than not. However, this does not mean I won’t flirt with new pieces and create statements in other ways. The changes may seem small but if they make me feel content and confident, I am winning.
A wardrobe is like an interior; they both need revivals from time to time.
Hence my choice of moody images today. This fabulous Parisian apartment designed by Iryna Dzhemesiuk & Vitaliy Yurov is out of my comfort zone but there is something that makes me want to examine the photographs in depth.
This is how I feel about my current wardrobe. It needs some investigation.
Halsbrook, have a friends and family discount of 20% until the 10th October, so with this in mind I have had a long browse at their newest arrivals. There are so many pieces, particularly their dress edit, which would do the job I have been mentioning here.
I’ll show you what I am deliberating over – and what I consider a done deal. xv
