I threw open the wardrobe door and peered inside. Pressed shirts, silk dresses, colourful skirts hanging side by side like relics from a past life. Reminders of a different time. Stuffed with stuff.

A momentary ripple of shame runs over me and I close the door. How much money and time was spent accumulating these things? I quickly grab the sturdy boots, the beat-up jeans and comfortable shirt - the utilitarian uniform now a daily staple. Like everything else in life, getting dressed has become pared back. Not going anywhere, comfort and utility are key.
