I’ve been quiet lately because there isn’t much to report.
My clothes and preparation throughout all of last year have ensured that at least for the last few weeks, I’ve felt happy and contented with what I own. I’ve been wearing these same few outfits on heavy repeat:
I’ve also been relying on this as a base for most of my daily wear:
Top: Uniqlo Extra Warm Heattech turtleneck top (currently sold out online)
Pants: Uniqlo Ultra Stretch jeans
Shoes: Ecco Sculptured 45 Gore-tex booties
There will always be things to get (black work pants–a need, Nike Flyknits–a want) but currently there is no immediate urgency. I’m enjoying this feeling of enough, that what I’ve bought and what I own fulfills exactly my need to be clothed and look presentable (ok, and “cool” too, however you define that.) I feel that I’ve been synthesizing outfits that finally match my idea of my own image, and I think getting that out of the way enables me to focus better on things like interacting with people, exploring my photography, and drinking all the sweet coffee drinks I can get my hands on.
Onward and forward.
