(For the past six years, I’ve used Reverb10 prompts to give myself a question to answer every day of December. It’s a great way to reflect on the year and set goals for the future. I’ve kept my favorite prompts, added a few from other sources, and created my own month-and- a-bit of questions.)
Wear it Out. What piece of clothing did you wear again and again this year?
I bought four pairs of black pants. I bought the first pair on sale, and loved them so much I bought another the exact same size and style full price. Then I saw they were on massive sale and bought two more. So I have four pairs of the exact same pants. They are fantastic. I feel like Audrey Hepburn in them. Soft and semi-stretchy ponte knit. Ankle length. Warm, but not thick. Tailored, but not too tight. They go with everything, travel well, and are so soft it feels like I’m wearing pajamas.
I wear a pair until it needs washing. At this rate, I won’t have to buy new pants for a decade.
