I’m slowly going through all the clothes in my closet and trying to see why I do or don’t wear them. Some have legitimate reasons (fancy dresses aren’t exactly every day wear), but some do not (if it’s too big, why do I still have it?). But it’s not always easy to figure out why you reach past an item of clothing, especially when you love it.
Like these pants. Love the colour. Love the fit. Comfortable to boot. But it turns out that boots are the problem. Black boots seem to heavy. Brown boots don’t seem to be right either. I fear trying to match the grey.
It’s these small hiccups that colour an outfit for me and I never know whether it’s best to just cut them loose or keep trying to find something to make them work.
Is it really worth keeping something you love, if you need to buy more things to make them work?
