Do You Have A Style Uniform? Here’s Mine!
As much as I’d like to say I experiment with fashion- it seems to be more and more in my head than in real life lately. You see the other day, as I was doing one of my monthly wardrobe culls I did a very interesting stocktake.
It went something like this:
Skinny jeans (black or grey) = 8 pairs
Black t-shirts with a round neck = 6
Black t-shirts with a v neck = 2
Grey t-shirts with a round neck = 3
Grey t-shirts with a v neck = 2
White t-shirts with a round neck = 3
White t-shirts with a neck = 2
Black t-shirts with tags still on, because God forbid Bonds stops making them = 4
Trainers/kicks/sneakers = 5 pairs for daily use, 2 pairs to be worn only when not planning to walk much. Oh, don’t laugh. You know you have those kicks at home in a box that you don’t wear cause they’re too new, too white or because it’s raining and you don’t want them to get wet!
Anyway, so as you can see there’s a very strong theme appearing. I am BASIC! I love my basics so much that the look below has pretty much become my uniform. Skinny jeans, kicks and a Tee. Oh you know, I might mix it up a bit and put on a printed tee – you know just to live on the edge. And sometimes, just sometimes I may even go all out and put on a skirt, denim of course and always with a basic tee.
If I’m going out I’ll totally pull out all the stops and throw on a pair of heels with the skinny jeans and add a blazer! Genius, right?!
So you see, I’ve pretty much got my wardrobe figured out. Now if I can only figure out what to do with the remaining 60% of my wardrobe that consists of clothes I call “I’ll wear them one day” outfits. You know, that denim jumpsuit, the black tutu skirt or the leopard print dress. One day, I will venture out and branch out. But not tomorrow, cause I’ve already ironed by good black bonds t-shirt in preparation for school drop off in the morning.
Do you have a daily uniform? What is it?
