Could I realistically come up with a work and play uniform and just wear the same thing daily like Barack Obama or my partner?
I can already imagine what it would be.
Do I want to?
Frankly, I am getting tired of people harping on it as being very un-minimalist and not at all in line with being a personal finance blogger.
I totally get why people wear one outfit or propose a single uniform forever, for the love of minimalism, or the idea that it actually exists.
Or, just to save money (or really, not to waste it), or to cut down on having to make a decision on what to wear each day.
But this is SO not me, even though I do seem to have three sets of ‘uniform’ base outfits I create and then style each day, I like having different base items, switching out accessories, etc.
I actually enjoy wearing different things daily.
I can wear the same things everyday but my goodness I’d be bored and so would you, because my Instagram would suck.
I don’t want to wear a single outfit for the rest of my life.
So could everyone just stop with chirping about how they’re saving so much money or time by just having one uniform they reach into the closet to wear each day, so they can concentrate on other things?
To that, I say:
What other things?
Finding a cure for cancer?
Training for the Olympics?
Can’t I look good AND find a cure for cancer while training for the decathlon?
(Just kidding about the working out part, I hate the gym.)
It is actually a fun hobby for me to think of different outfits and styles, to add new pieces, and have different style personalities each day.
I enjoy it.
So if you don’t like style and getting dressed daily in a new outfit, then please stop trying to make it seem like you’re the bee’s knees, and people who don’t fall into your robot uniform line, are ditzy idiots who are spendaholics.
Even Michelle Obama enjoys wearing great & different clothes and she is by no means an idiot.
““He’s always asking: ‘Is that new? I haven’t seen that before.’
It’s like, Why don’t you mind your own business? Solve world hunger. Get out of my closet.”
“You didn’t need any more shoes.
The shoes you had on yesterday were fine.
Why can’t you just wear that for the rest of the presidency?”
