While sorting clothes this morning (it’s Memorial Day, good day to do laundry), I realized I have a lot of navy tops. Three of them were in this week’s wash. It’s been my go-to color this week while our temperatures went way down. There was some brown in there, too, but mainly navy.
Seeing all those navy tops, I got to thinking about how many navy shirts were in my closets, and I was a bit taken aback. I have three short-sleeve navy tops, all sort of on the casual side. I have two long-sleeve navy tops that I wear with suits. I have a navy silk shell that I bought for one specific outfit but wear with others that include a jacket. (I don’t do sleeveless any more in public.) Then there is one long-sleeved, front-buttoned, collared shirt. It’s actually a stripe, so maybe it doesn’t count.
We won’t discuss black. Or brown. Or turquoise.
These are the reasons I’m not buying new clothes unless I get rid of a similar piece from my closets. And, yes, closet is plural. I have two. But, one must remember this is a small house. There are no walk-in closets. Another reason to not buy any more clothes right now.
Please note, I did not mention shoes in this post.
