A uniform

I’ve been thinking more and more that life would be simpler if I just stuck to a weekday uniform.  I find it more and more difficult to buy clothes these days – harder to find things I really love that are worth shelving out hard earned cash – and although I’ve been fairly ruthless about getting rid of clothes I no longer wear, or that I don’t love wearing, I still have a heap of clothes hanging in my wardrobe (only to default to wanting to throw on the same thing I wore yesterday).

At the moment I just want to wear my current favourite pair of black or dark blue skinny jeans, a white shirt or t-shirt, or a stripey tee, and shoes that match my mood.  We’re lucky with the weather in South Africa, so much of the year, bare arms will suffice.  Weekends and nights out are a different story – hello colour and pattern, and maybe some bare legs – but it’s the daytime version of a man’s suit (or chinos and collared shirt) that I’m dreaming about.

I think these would make a very good place to start – Summer Uniform 101:
