Today marks day 30 of sixing and since I was so well behaved all month, I decided to let myself off on good behavior and celebrate by putting on a coral and white striped shirt, crazy, I know…
While part of me feels like Dorothy stepping into the Technicolor Land of Oz after a black and white Kansas, I have to say that sixing was a lot easier and a lot more enjoyable than I had imagined it being. After a whole month of limiting myself to only a fraction of my wardrobe, I can honestly say that I barely even missed it. Much to my surprise too, there were only a few times when I found myself wishing for more variety and it was kind of amazing to never have to worry about what to wear.
So am I a sixer for life? Well, probably not, but this month did make me think a lot about my fashion choices and I’m definitely going to make an effort to become a more conscious shopper. I’m not about to go as far as to boycott my favorite fast fashion stores, but I’m going to make an effort to buy more classic and durable pieces and to shop second hand when I can. Overall though (and especially because my wardrobe looks so enormous after a month of deprivation), I’m going to try to focus on what I already have, and to think twice about whether I actually need something or if I just want it when I am out shopping. I have—we all have—a lot more than we realize we do.
So, signing off for sixing but I’ll be returning tomorrow with my next endeavour: Soxing. Seriously.
Oh, and in case you didn’t notice, I finally have a logo! It’s not 100% done yet and I anticipate a few more variations before I call it a day, but hey, better done than perfect, right?
