I am thinking I might take advantage of the sub-rule that says you can make a substitution after the first week. When it's sunny I think I really need a hat. I'm wondering which of the items I should replace with my squashy navy sunhat. Probably the green handbag, though I'm wondering about the big black scarf. Though that is awfully useful as a wrap when it turns cold after being warm all day. So I shall keep that, put away the green handbag, and retrieve my navy sunhat from wherever I put it.

Anyway, it's been really really good. I've enjoyed getting dressed in the morning, it's sort of peaceful. I've even enjoyed hanging out the laundry, because I already think of my chosen items as friends whom I'm glad to see again after they've been washed. The only time I've had little moments of doubt are when I see someone wearing something cool and I think that I have something like that which I could wear, but it's Put Away. But then I realise that I actually like the clothes that I've chosen more than that thing, and that's why I chose them.

It's encouraging me to try minimalism in other parts of my life. This will be an exciting journey.
