These photos were taken as both the husband and I were rushing out the door for work. Why? Because it’s Thursday, and I will be imprisoned in yet another curriculum development meeting at work – likely until 10pm again tonight. So if I wanted to post my outfit today, I had to do it before parting ways with my photographer/hubby.
For those of you out there who have wardrobes chock full of items you have never or barely worn, consider doing a “Closet Purge” and sharing the things that are cluttering up your closet with your family and friends! From my experience, all those unworn items merely take up closet space and actually detracts from one’s ability to see the cute outfits that could come from said person’s wardrobe. The more I purge, the easier it becomes to “see” my wardrobe’s true potential. Plus, you may be able to do a swap for something cute your family member/friend purges from their closet that you love! It’s just as good as shopping for new things…without having to even open up your wallet! WIN!
Here is the blog series I use (yes, it’s a continuous process) to build and reassess my wardrobe. I love this blogger’s step by step approach to the whole wardrobe building process. Hopefully it will also help you to create a wardrobe you enjoy working with.
