A few weeks ago, I talked about organizing my shirt drawers and my realization that, quite frankly, I have a lot of shirts.
Well, I decided it would be fun to record my shirts…with a twist (okay, not a twist so much as a rule)..that I would try to not rewear any shirts (with the caveat that if I end up going away this summer, I may have to break this rule). So, I give you the first of I don’t know how many posts, of the shirts I’ve worn this summer! There are a few days where I don’t wear a shirt (ooooooooooh…no, I mean when I wear a dress), but I wear mostly shirt/pant or shirt/skirt combos.
This was worn on a Sunday and Monday (so weekend clothes/work wear). I wore a navy camisole under the cardigan
The green shirt has strips of fabric layers…the red one makes me think of the classic red and white dress orphan Annie wears in the play/movie.
Weekend wear again. I think I got both tops at Target.
The long-sleeved shirt isn’t a “summer shirt” but that was a colder day. I totally re-wear the cape may shirt at home.
Stay tuned for day 13 and beyond.
This has been a good exercise as it’s helped me not rely on wearing the same shirt again and again (which I tend to do) and has led me to new appreciation of shirts I hadn’t worn for a while (I really loved the green day 5 shirt when I wore it). I was also annoyed to find some stains on the white day 12 shirt.
I also realize I am not a great shirt photographer. My exciting backgrounds consist of my blanket and bedroom carpet. And the wrinkles! Not to mention trying to arrange two shirts so that you can see them. And some of the detail doesn’t really come through…so we’ll see if my photographs improve through this exercise.
Do you find that you re-wear certain shirts/items of clothing a lot or do you tend to run through your choices before going back to something?
