If Variety Is The Spice…

Then Simplicity Is The Entrée

White tee, white jeans, striped yellow & white wedges, long gray hooded vest and white cane.Today’s world is moving at such a hectic pace it’s getting increasingly harder to keep up. Even though all of us operate within the same 24-hour parameter it can feel like there’s never enough time to do all we need or want to accomplish.

Since dealing with family situations, health related issues, financial problems, and just life, in general, can be overwhelming scaling back can be a helpful solution. Simplicity makes it a little easier by taking stress levels down a few notches and retaining sanity.

Tribal print sleeveless top, white jeans, striped yellow & white wedges, and white cane.I used to buy into the whole “variety is the spice of life” theory until I began to feel bogged down. It’s been almost a year since I started the process of getting rid of things I don’t want or need. While thinning out my wardrobe was a challenge I eagerly looked forward to, limiting the number of shoes I would keep caused me a bit of anxiety but I continue onward.

In today’s photos, I’m wearing two separate outfits with my favorite white jeans (the only pair I own) and yellow & white striped wedges. The only difference between the outfits are the tops. By the way, I’m not ashamed to admit I wear these jeans at least once a week.

It really isn’t necessary to have a ton of different clothes, shoes, and accessories to mix things up. Using a couple of key pieces, in this case, the jeans and shoes with different tops and handbags create different looks.

Life is difficult enough without the added worry of what to wear. Style doesn’t require a vast assortment of things.
