Fewer clothes are needed and as a result I am living with less.
Several dressy garments are reserved for date nights and dinners out.
The bulk of my minimal wardrobe is focused on casual and active wear.
I went shopping mostly to browse...
and to replace some socks that had worn out.
The shops were busy!
I perused the shoes as I would love to find a new pair of flats for winter.
Then checked out the new Fall and Winter stock on the racks...
lots to choose from and oodles of sweaters and outer wear.
This light jacket accompanied me to Paris...
I am wearing a simple blue top and the skinny NYDJ that are worn several times every week
I frequently roll up the cuffs and wear with black Sam Edelman flats.
Checking out the charcoal grey skinny pants that did not make the cut...
too long and the fabric is not weighty enough.
I may regret not buying these pants...
they are not as sturdy as I would like but they would be useful.
Buying wisely, carefully with thoughts of not wasting money...
I already own two pairs of pants like these in black
so do I really "need" another pair?
I think not.
This Kenar skirt did make the cut...
not the look I would go for with this longer top
but the fit is good and I am planning on wearing it with tights and short booties.
Will wear it when I take Mother out to lunch,
on date nights for dinner, bridge at the club, and at the theatre.
I find it is difficult taking photos, especially "selfies" in a dressing room.
A cozy puffy jacket for walking in a pewter shade made by Columbia.
In the style of the Michelin Man!
I like the asymmetrical zipper detail and there is a hood for windy days.
It feels light and will help keep me warm during those cold winter walks.
The Kenar wool skirt is going to get a lot of wear this season.
I have only two other skirts in my closet...
one is a black knit
the other is a mid calf length dressy skirt in metallic grey and black accents.
I am looking forward to swapping out my summer wardrobe for Fall and Winter garments but we are still enjoying a bit of an "Indian Summer" so I am waiting for a cool patch when the rains decide to stay awhile before I do the switch.
All the garments are checked for wear and I will repair any that need attention and donate a few things that I feel are at the end of their lifespan.
Having only a few items hanging in the closet make getting dressed so much easier...besides our closet is so tiny that we can hardly see what is inside if all the clothes are squished together!
I rely on scarves and accessories to add a personal touch.
Are you shopping for anything new this season?
What's on your wish list?
big as a dinner plate
seen in a garden on my walking route.
