There is nothing like a change in the weather to help identify gaps in the collection of clothes. After a long, hot summer that I thought would never end, the weather has turned quite cool.
My cool season selection is somewhat depleted with the departure of three tops at the end of last winter.
I had this red/white striped 3/4 sleeved one as well as two black/white ones of the same style. They were at the end of their life so I wore them to death on our holidays and then sent them to the op shop when we arrived home. However, I have yet to replace them.
I am not sure what I want so I expect I will need to make a concerted effort and have a look around. I also need another pair of trousers for work as I have one pair of black trousers.
Then there is the small matter of a coat. I have a long, navy overcoat which is over 20 years old but in perfect condition. It is more than I need in Queensland so I am thinking of parting with it and getting something more suitable. I envisage a hip-length coat, preferably charcoal grey or black.
I have been so busy at work for the past couple of weeks that I have barely had time to keep up with the basics of washing and cooking, let alone considering changes to my wardrobe. I hope to make time this weekend to look carefully at what I have and what I need.
