Expanding My Stay-At-Home Wardrobe

If you are going to be stuck at home, you may as well be comfy. The other week I was appalled to discover that I didn’t have a single ‘comfy sweater’, so I took a quick trip to my local op shop to grab some items before settling into my life of relative isolation. (I say ‘relative’ because there are 4 boys in my house and it actually doesn’t feel very isolated at all.)

So what came in and what got ditched from the wardrobe?

I bought this Russell Athletic lime green jumper (love a bit of green – it will make me productive while I am working at home), a beaut little loud pink and white stretchy skirt with elastic waist to wear with black leggings and black lace up no-heel boots for a sort of ‘dressed-up-but-not-really’ look for video meetings, and a warm chequered zip-up jacket.


I’ve been searching for some new outdoor boots since my beloved Merrells (bought almost new from an op shop, ridiculously cheap, 5 years ago) mysteriously disappeared. (Friends – if you have found a pair of khaki walking boots floating around your car, they’re mine and I miss them! I have left them somewhere dumb.) I didn’t find any replacement boots in my quick shopping trip (that would have been too amazing), but I did pick up these Brooks Ghost 7 running shoes which fit me perfectly, look barely worn and will do the job for now. (The tennis racquet is just for looks – COVID-19 stamped out the last few weeks of the tennis season.)

I cleared out a pile of LBDs that don’t really fit me anymore.  And I’m trying to stay away from black.  A bit.  I gave them to my younger and more shapely sister, although I have been trying to steer her away from black too, so perhaps she’ll pass them on?  That’s what this recycling fashion ferris wheel is about, after all.
