Virtue definitely doesn't pay in this instance. I had a purge of my wardrobe five years ago, prior to moving to Spain, and more recently I have taken part in Project 333, getting rid of even more of my older clothes. Today I had to look in my pared down wardrobe and try to find something that I've had for more than five years, which believe me wasn't easy. I have a camel coat that must be at least ten years old, but it wasn't really suitable for today's agenda. I also have a skirt suit and trouser suit that I brought over to Spain, but I was about to show four English tourists around my local town and neither would really suit (sorry for the pun!). I needed casual comfort this morning, so I eventually settled for the outfit below.
So what are the oldest items - apart from me?! I have owned this green top for just over 5 years, however the gold watch was a Christmas present from my husband twenty years ago (our first Christmas together - ahh bless!), so it's definitely the oldest thing that I am wearing. The newest items are the dark green shoes, which I bought earlier this year, and my peachy necklace, which I bought at the end of September last year. This is also a combination that I haven't worn before, which was also part of today's challenge.
Considering I didn't have a lot of time this morning to think about my outfit, I don't think I've done too badly. What do you think?
