I love my accessories
I don’t have a huge wardrobe. In fact, I keep wearing the same pieces most of the time. And when I go shopping (less often than you’d think), I tend to buy something very similar to what I already have.
And you know what, I like that. I like having sort of a seasonally appropriate ‘uniform’ that is practical and suits my lifestyle. And I’d be happy if my wardrobe could fit into one small(fish) suitcase. That would make life so much simpler. Have less, live more, that sort of thing.
But accessories are my downfall. There’s always a new bag, a pair of gloves, or (my all time favourite) sunglasses to covet.
So, I’m trying to be sensible and only buy what I really, really love. Why? Well, for several reasons. First, because I don’t have unlimited funds (and as a freelancer, my income can fluctuate quite a bit). Second, I don’t have unlimited storage space. And I already have way too much stuff cluttering our small(ish) flat. And third, I hate the wastefulness of always acquiring new things.
I think we should celebrate craftsmanship, appreciate good quality items, and actually wear and use the stuff we spend our hard-earned cash on.
And for that reason, every single piece I’m wearing here is old (except the coat) and has been featured on the blog before.
coat: Sand / cashmere top: Repeat / trousers: Marks and Spencer / bag: Furla /
sunglasses: Prada / cashmere scarf: A+ more / shoes: Maripé / gloves: Global accessories
What about you? How big (or small) a wardrobe do you have?
And do you try to limit your accessories collection, too, like me?
