While I was pregnant, I thought I did a smart thing of cleaning out my wardrobe
. I expected that I would put on quite a number of pounds, and would probably need considerable amount of time to shed the pregnancy pounds.
I had no delusional ideas that like hollywood stars or local celebrities like Wong Li Lin, who ran a marathon or was it a biathlon a few months after pregnancy, that i'd be hitting the gym as soon as I ended my confinement and returning to my size 6 figure (LOL..size 6, year right!).
True enough, the twins are keeping me from any outside activity, hence no gym time. Even taking brisk walks in the morning have been almost impossible, as they haven't quite settled into a routine quite yet. However, I have lost all my pregnancy weight
, and better still am lighter than pre-pregnancy.
OK lah...yes you're right I HAD put on some weight even before I got pregnant, so I'm not super skinny but thinner lah...thin enough to fit into stuff which were too tight before I got pregnant.
So the wardrobe cleaning up has now worked against me. I now have nothing to wear because I've thrown away a lot of stuff I thought wouldn't fit me. And I haven't had time (read: lazy) to dig out the stuff that I did pack away.
PLUS I think I need a new look. A lot of my clothes were very bohemian-ish, lots of colour, variety etc. No no...the word is eclectic. It took me a lot of time to put outfits together because things didn't easily match, because pieces of clothing seemed like they were from different genres. It was fun then, to dress executive one day, bohemian another, Minah another day and cutesy-cutesy another day. Now i don't have the time nor the luxury to mix and match, and to follow my weird style moods.
I'm thinking of ditching colour and shopping in monochrome. Like blacks, whites, greys and yah, that's it. And maybe just do plain t-shirts, and shirts. Basic pants, jeans and capris and that's it. The aim would be, if I reached out into the wardrobe and blindly picked up a top and a bottom, it would match. I call this 'THE FLYNN', after a dear friend and colleague whose dress style is based on this philosophy.
But aiyar so boring right (although Flynn is not boring at all, I Love you Tau Kwa)
? Especially when this season is all about bright blocks of colour. Groan...
What do you guys think?
