Over the last year or so, I took on the challenge of pairing back my wardrobe. Ruthlessly throwing out unloved and unworn clothes, I began to realise how unmistakably fickle I was when it came to impulse shopping. I realised then that there was only a fraction of clothes hanging in my wardrobe that fitted me perfectly, that I felt confident wearing and that actually matched.
Forgoing the on-trend-tat I would add to my basket on a weekly basis, I dared myself to actually wear the clothes I own and love - without having a binge here and there. What's the point of buying clothes - if you wear them once and discard them come next payday?
Slowly but surely, over the last few months I have been adding classic pieces back into my wardrobe.
After an accidental stumble into Gap, I was amazed (and soon hooked). Excellent quality but equally stylish, I've raided their knitwear department, found the perfect white t-shirt and thanked the lord for their jean department. Take the mint knit above, a complete steal (on offer for £16) I took it home in grey too. A number of welcome additions to my wardrobe, that won't hit the dust come next month.
Tell me: Are you an impulse shopper? Have you stepped foot in Gap since the 90's? How amazing is this bluebell forest in my village?
