“A girl can never have too many clothes or accessories.”
That is the biggest lie ever told to women, and we actually believe it. Yes, there ARE too many clothes in my wardrobe that I could ever maintain and keep a track of! But when I think of donating them away, it hurts to do so because these are the barely-worn-twice-in-my-lifetime pieces that I have actually become quite fond of. Like, even after giving away 6 large shopping bags full of clothes to H&M, I’m still having TOO many clothes to take care of. THAT many number of clothes I’m talking about guys; and yes, it’s a lot.
So to deal with this dilemma, I have come up with a solution which may help you if you are facing the same problems as I am. I have decided to pick a few shades of colours, and stick to those colours for at least 6 months. That way, I will repeatedly use at least the same clothes over and over again!
I’m very excited about this and for my own project, I have picked the main colour as Sherwin Williams’ Colour of the Year 2019 – Cavern Clay and an array of hues and shades of that warm and inviting brown, along with a selection of complementary and contrasting colours to wear it with. In total, I have 20 shades picked out for at least the first half of 2019. If I really like them till June, I might just continue with that colour palette for the rest of the year too! But before that I will re-read my copy of Marie Kondo’s “The Life Changing Magic of Tidying Up” and clear some more clothes from my wardrobe.
So here’s my colour palette, that I’m very, very happy to share with you as well! And like the good girl I am, I’m sticking to this religiously.
What I like the most about this wardrobe hack is that it’s going to save me a lot of time thinking about what colour to wear every time I have to pick clothes. This colour palette, in my opinion, is very versatile – muted, dainty and mature.
Let me know if you face similar wardrobe issues, and how you tackle with them. I would love to have you share your past experience with this as I eventually would like to lead a minimal life! Dreaming real big here, guys. REAL. BIG.
So thanks guys for reading this blog post and see you in the next one with some more interesting experiments!
