Back to Basics | Simple Classic Style
There is something seductively special when the sun becomes generous and decides to show its sunny side on a wintry day. There is always a feeling of enthusiasm while waking up to the colours of sunlight, and the buoyed feeling inside me looking at a bright day is inexplicably special. The air feels fresher; my eyes feel like they are wider open and an unwavering stability to start the day nudges me on.
Although the sun has always had a therapeutic effect on me, along with the warmth and brightness outside; sometimes it is not just about the sun enhancing my mood ~ the clothes I own and wear too play a vital part in elevating my frame of mind. Yes, I share a very unique relationship with my clothes, and they play an important part in the way I feel.
Off late I have been thinking about my style of dressing, the clothes I own, the meticulous way I have chosen them over others and my sense of attachment towards them ~ especially this bespoke ensemble. I have a special liking towards it ~ wearing it makes me feel graceful and more confident ~ the ivory tones, the weave, and the beautiful silhouette; they all play their magic on me.
Yes, I can be prejudiced when it comes to certain clothes in my wardrobe and I’m always aiming to build on these pieces. Pieces that I like on first appearance that can turn out to be wardrobe changers later down the line, when I realise just how good I feel in them ~ you know the pieces I’m referring to.
Recently I happened to read Marie Kondo’s book ‘The Life-Changing Magic of Tidying’ where she asks you if any of the items in your wardrobe brings you unreasonable joy. Well, her words struck a chord and really resonate with me; buying, keeping and looking after the pieces that spark joy as they bind together skeins of memories based on my sartorial choices is what it’s all about for me.
