“Is there not glory enough in living the days given to us? You should know there is adventure in simply being among those we love and the things we love, and beauty, too.”

This winter's plan is not about the number of clothes in the closet. What I'm showing here are my favourites and the things I'm wearing all the time...but that means most of what I own, outside of a few summer-only clothes. The funny thing is that, if you don't count shoes and two outdoor coats, there are 35 clothing items listed here, without even trying. 

Most of what's here came from thrift or consignment stores, and most of it was on the Fall/Winter list already. These are the clothes that keep me going all week, from active and often dusty volunteering mornings, to quiet days around the apartment, to casual dinners out and Sunday church. On my wish list: a second pair of jeans [DONE], and something to replace my jeggings, which are starting to show their age.
