And neither do grownups.
This is a quote from Like Mother, Like Daughter- a very practical blog started by a mother who was always giving her young adult daughters advice on making a home.
"Here is what your pre-adolescent children need: a few, five at the most, bottoms (say, two pairs of jeans and two corduroys). A scant week's worth of tops. Two light sweaters. Possibly a vest. For boys, a good pair of pants for Sundays, and two good shirts. For girls, two nice dresses or two church-worthy skirts and two ditto blouses."
So here are my practice wardrobes for a boy, a girl, a man, and a woman. Specifically my boy, my man, and me, along with my imaginary one-day daughter.
Looks a lot like my travel one, after all Diane von Furstenberg says, "When you figure out your suitcase, you figure out your life."
