The word “uniform” brings to mind knee socks, kilts, and blazers. But recently I was introduced to a different kind of uniform. The idea behind it is the same as the idea behind school uniforms. It would consist of a few types of items that one could wear every day. This is not to say that I want to wear the same thing every day. But on the Monday mornings when I just want to crawl back into the cave of my bed, having a uniform helps. I can just grab the elements of said uniform and be done dressing in two minutes flat, leaving me time to read in my bed for a few more minutes.
A couple of weeks back when it looked like the snow might eventually melt and I might be able to someday leave my house without my puffer coat, I started drafting a spring uniform. I wanted to be sure that I would really love whatever I came up with, and that could carry me into summer with only some minor variations. I gathered inspiration from various locations, decided upon a silhouette and palette, bought some pieces, and reorganized my closet to better suit my uniform. (If you want more on this process, just tell me and I’d be happy to post the whole thing!)
I ended up with a uniform consisting of high waisted shorts, loose shirts, and a short jacket over the entire thing. My palette was white, black, grey, blush, and pale blue. Below are some of my favorite pieces from my spring 2014 uniform!
What do you think? Would you ever make a uniform? Let me know in the comments section!
