Closet Content Analysis: Summer Wardrobe
NOTE-WORTHY: After a winter of grey and black with a smattering of red, I enjoy researching new spring colours and tend to pay more attention to spring colour trends. For the summer, like the winter, I have chosen a very neutral palette and have been satisfied with it for a very long time. When I go shopping for summer clothing, I think, "sea, sand and sky" (no matter where in the world I am) - essentially, blue, beige/sand and white (with some black still providing the base). It has served me well. In fact the "sea, sand and sky" palette provides my bedroom and bathroom colour choices as well. There's something easy and cool about it for clothing, peaceful and calm for the bedroom and clean and bright for the bathroom. It also makes shopping easy.

NOTE-WORTHY "SAND" CHOICE: This pair of heeled mules is actually beige and a pale pink but they're perfect if I want to dress-up my Sorrento "sand" outfit. I bought them sometime after the spring of 2009 when I was in Romans, France, thinking about that "sand" outfit. Short of a major trendy heel change, these will serve me a long time. However, those too are in Canada.
|Linen pants: same style in black, white and beige.|
NICE & NEW BLACK, WHITE & SAND CHOICES: I have always had linen pants in these three colours. The style is loose-fitting, usually with a drawstring at the waist. For my trip to France this year, I bought the same style in the three colours and will leave them here. I also have a variety of lengths of shorts and capris in the same three colours.
