*The following is my first post on a new Medium.com publication called The Simple Wardrobe.
I am a writer. Being a writer means constantly looking for ways to make time to write. Most writers, myself included, have day jobs and/or part-time jobs.
This is not a complaint, mind you. I’m just painting a picture.
I do not wear makeup. From time to time, I will run a large curling iron through my hair to add volume, but I will not commit to more than ten minutes to this task. Ten minutes is even too long for my taste.
Are you getting the idea? — I do not want to spend time “putting myself together” including picking out my clothes or shopping for clothes. Yes, I want to look nice, but I only really want to look nice to myself and my partner. Luckily, we both have the same idea of what nice is: cleanish.
I am willing to put in some time upfront to reap the benefits later. I love the idea of having a closet fully stocked with clothing that I can be easily mixed and matched, are comfortable, and are my style.
I intend to log my not-quite-fashion fashion journey here.
Notes About Links
I will use affiliate links from time to time, but not always. Please feel free to use or not use the links provided in my posts.
Notes About Photos
It is my intention to use photos of my clothing and sometimes of myself that I’ve taken. I do imagine from time to time that I will need to use a screenshot or the random Unsplash.com photo, but I will do my best to use my own photos.
Notes About Being An Expert On A Thing
To be an expert on a thing, you just have to know more than one other person about said subject.
I have been learning about fast, slow, and sustainable fashion for a couple of years…Maybe I do like fashion?
Wait — Before we move on, I’d like to note that when I use italics I am either a)sharing a title or b)letting you hear what’s going on in my mind aka talking to myself in type.
That being said, I am not a fashion expert, but I suppose by starting this blog, I am becoming a type of fashion blogger which is something I’ve never imagined doing. But, I do believe this will be great fun.
If you are interested in continuing, I do hope you join me once or twice a month here for updates, thoughts, and other interesting bits of information I discover.
If you have a capsule wardrobe, minimalist wardrobe, or monochrome style, I would love to hear from you in the comments as I need all the help I can get!
Also, if you are blogging about fashion, please feel free to link that blog in the comments if Medium allows that kind of thing.
