Clutter Free

Quest for a Functional Wardrobe - Clutter Free

Quest for a Functional Wardrobe - Clutter Free

Today is about being free of clutter. It’s been a while coming, but today is the day that my Nan’s house is finally ready for inspections by prospective buyers. There are people coming through this afternoon, so the next couple of hours will be spent frantically shoving as much as possible out of sight. Into cupboards, under beds, anywhere we can fit it really.

With that in mind, my outfit needs to be clutter-free as well. I don’t want to be annoyed by dangling jewellery or scarves, so to makeĀ it a little less boring I’ve gone for a top with interesting texture around the neckline. My accessory of choice is a belt (unlikely to get in the way), which adds some unexpected colour. It would be fantastic Nan gets a reasonable offer on the house today so this process doesn’t draw out for weeks and weeks!

Yesterday I decided I should try harder to find some new colours to pair with my purple jeans – I’m pretty sure today’s green fits the brief. This navy/green print top somehow managed to convince me it was pretty much navy, and then before I knew it I was wearing emerald-green and bright purple together!

I had so much trouble picking out pictures I liked today – do you ever have days where it seems like you’ve somehow forgotten how to smile? Not because you’re unhappy, but because your face muscles just don’t want to co-operate for some unknown reason? Despite this, I really enjoyed the combination of patterned scarf and striped tshirt and would very happily pair these items together again.

If you count denim jeans as a “neutral”, which I do, then add this to my very short list of outfits composed entirely of neutrals. As a colour-loving girl, I generally have at least one little burst of bright colour somewhere in my outfit.

I did like this outfit though, and it helped me to understand why some people naturally gravitate towards neutrals – it’s very calming.

Not Suited

I wore this outfit to do some morning errands, but it just didn’t quite seem right. The blazer with black jeans felt a little too much like a suit, especially dressed up with a necklace. So for the afternoon I swapped out the blazer for a denim jacket, and the necklace for a scarf.

I’m sure I would have been happy enough in the original outfit given the right occasion, but for a busy day driving around I was much more comfortable with the second option.
