Day of the Dead Wardrobe 365
Image by M. Gustafson Gervasi, 2015
November 1st - The Day of the Dead. Spinning a bit on today's theme I give you my new frugal plan for work clothing -- a uniform of black. Living frugal to me is not just the expenditure of money, but time. We all only get 24 hours a day, and I spend too much of those precious hours debating what to buy and wear to the office. Envious of my husband's "owner of an engineering firm" look, I too wanted a uniform. And then in my Facebook feed was this article on successful folks who wear the same thing everyday. No that might be a bit extreme, but I've decided to focus on black pants, skirts, and sweaters (cardigans essentially). Underneath a white or cream shirt. Color will be a scarf or belt or maybe shoes. The goal is to be able to dress in the dark and have everything match. This also stream lines shopping time; zero in on the black clothing with dark gray being acceptable. Crazy? Maybe, but I'm going with it for now.
