What Was on My Wardrobe Update List?
Each fall and spring, I overhaul my closet to create a working fall/winter wardrobe and spring/summer wardrobe, respectively. I make a list of items that I have to replace and to add to update for trends. This time. The replacement list looked as follows:
- Flat boots in gray,
- A plaid skirt,
- Tan gloves,
- Tights in nude,
- A neutral color cashmere sweater,
- Various pieces of new underwear,
- Colored denim jacket,
- A jacket (outerwear), and
- New dance shoes.
The list for trend updates included a:
- Trendy beret in a statement color,
- Gloves in a statement color,
- A burgundy down vest with a bit more insulation than my black down vest with hoodie
- Dance dress, and
- A fun wool or down skirt in olive.
Regarding the dance dress, I am looking at these two or three (?).
The pink dress is $59.99 and also available in dusty navy, burgundy, and cream. This means I am also undecided on whether to go for pink (I will always love a beautiful look in pink) or trying out a new (for me) color, namely dusty navy. The burnt orange dress is $74.99. Which one would you buy?
Which Wardrobe Updates Bought so Far
The easiest parts are always the tights and underwear except for the bra. I love my Hipstik® Legwear
. A T-shirt bra in AA34 is hard to find. You have seen the plaid skirt already various times. In case you missed it, I wore it with my new burgundy down vest how to wear a puffer vest and not look fat. You also saw the new plaid skirt in my post on what you can wear at the work holiday party.
My husband found the B2 aviator jacket with hoodie, but we haven’t taken photos of it yet. I wanted to have one ever since he got his Aleutian aviator parka. You can find a photo of him in his parka watching the Iditarod start in Fairbanks.
You have seen the colored denim jacket already in various different looks in my post why a crazy print jacket is the best for maximizing your looks. Today’s outfit is another look with this very versatile piece. I found it in a little boutique in College that is in the same building as the dance studio.
What I Ordered and I am Waiting for its Arrival
LeatherCoatsEtc leather gloves and beret are on their way. Do you pay for fast delivery? I don’t.
What Lands Repeatedly in my Chart and Isn’t on the List
Bags, watches, festive dresses, and shoes, but not the flat gray boots. I love heels. Currently, I am obsessed about this cool watch.
Is It the Pandemic That Makes Shopping so Much Harder?
Last year, it also took me forever to finish the fall/winter shopping. Prior to the pandemic, it was just a matter of two weeks. Well, my credit card didn’t like it, but you get over it. It occurred to me that in former time, I did a lot of my seasonal replacement/update shopping when on travel in the Lower 48. Did you change your shopping habits due to the pandemic? Just curious.
