I Love Neutrals? - Outfit 7

Today I went for yet another lighting situation. I would call this "dappled light". Not so bad.

Outfit 8A

Sweater - Madison, Belk
Tank - Tucker for Target
Shorts - Mossimo, Target
Necklace - Resale Shop
Bracelet - Vintage, Mae's Emporium
Flats - Thrifted

Outfit 8B

Today's outfit certainly has a lot going on. Floral, ikat, red, yellow, glimmer, sheen. This kind of "more is more" outfit is generally my dressing M.O. In light of that, it is interesting how neutral my items for my Spring 5 Piece French Wardrobe have turned out. Aside from the poppy orange cardigan, all are true neutrals. It's interesting that when I limit the amount of new pieces that I buy, I naturally gravitate towards items that are versitile versus items that are signature, one-off pieces.

I have found myself staring down a lovely ikat print tank at Gap. It was cute and in another life I might have bought it. However, with the limits of the 5PFW, I question whether I really want to spend one of my five items on this piece. The 5PFW has turned out to be a really great filter. It makes me more considerate in my shopping and I purchase only what I really need and really love.

I'm starting to think about my 5PFW for Fall. It too is shaping up to be neutral heavy. I suppose that my wardrobe is so filled with "signature" pieces that I actually need more neutrals to mix them with. It's pretty interesting how all this is shaping up.
