The Outfit List Revisited

It’s been many years since I first posted about my trusty outfit list. Much has stayed the same over time. I still spend a big chunk of time – three or four hours – every couple of months going through my closet and assembling outfits.

When I worked in an office, I allowed a fairly small window of time for morning prep, mostly because I aimed to arrive at my office by 7:30 a.m. Back then, HM and I both rose at 5:50 a.m. and since he showered first, I ended up with approximately 45 minutes in which to shower, dress, and primp. Here’s how I crammed all of that into a relatively small amount of time. read more
