Recently, I donated half of my clothes to Goodwill leaving me with still too many clothes for which I have no real love. In cleaning out my closet, however, a natural palette emerged.

While I enjoy looking at lots of colors and patterns, I do not enjoy wearing them. I like to stick to neutral colors and solid colors.

I consider my palette’s main colors to be black and white, but I often wear denim in dark blue and other neutral tones like olive green or warm greys.

I like having this neutral foundation because I am a collector of scarfs and mala necklaces. Both my scarves and mala necklaces have vibrant colors and fun patterns. I like that I can wear any of these items whenever I want without having to think about matching.

I am looking to increase the number of neutral-colored pieces to my closet as I find black and white to be quite stark these days. One of my next steps in creating my own personal uniform is to replace some of my less loved items with loved ones.
