I’m not a shopper. Rather, I’m not a spender. When I bring myself to buy clothes, usually in a mail-order sprint, I want them to last ten years. At least. For example, I still wear a worn out blue SKYR turtleneck from high school. I'm not even going to tell you how old that makes it. OLDER THAN DIRT THAT'S HOW OLD.
So given my frugality and general disinterest in all things shopping, it is with some dismay that I’ve been looking over my wardrobe these warm, early spring days, trying to figure out what’s appropriate to wear to work. You see, my current wardrobe falls into two categories: Suits and Slob. Circa 1999. Something clearly must be done, but with minimal effort and expense.
I’m thinking about a uniform regimen. It will go something like this:
Tuesday: sweater set (two different colors, for alternating weeks) /black pants
Wednesday: cute Boden jacket (two different colors, alternating weeks) /khakis
Friday: grab bag
Does everyone do this?
If not, will anyone catch on?
And even if they do, so what?
