Just a quick note that free shipping on all orders (US-based only!) ends Sunday at SLOWRE: use code SUMMER. If you place an order after noon tomorrow (7/8), it probably won’t ship out until 7/18 though, FYI. Any orders placed today or early tomorrow morning will ship out ASAP.
I’ve done some significant wardrobe purging the last few days; things I just don’t reach for much anymore, so you will see some black dresses of mine on there, including my very favorite OAK maxi dress (ah! between the time I wrote this and published this, that dress has sold!). Never fear though, I already have the smaller size on order, so I won’t be without the dress for very long. I just couldn’t deal with the dress falling off my shoulders the last time I wore it…it’s too big for me lately.
And shoes…oh, shoes…some of my shoes are there as well. Shoes I don’t wear as often as I’d like to, so I’m passing them on. I hope someone else will love and wear them more than I do!
Now for Friday random:
Remember in my review of Marie Kondo’s “The Life-Changing Magic of Tidying Up” I mentioned that she suggested taking everything out of your handbag every night upon returning home, and storing your bag for the next day? And how I thought that was a bit excessive? Well, I’m doing it now. Only for the last couple of days, but man, already, it is life-changing. Maybe slightly less than life-changing, but an important development nonetheless.
This way, I can choose the bag I need to carry based on what I need to put in it, not what is already IN it. I actually saw an instagram post by Dacy from The Mindful Closet that she had started doing this, which was what spurred me to try it. Also, I want to carry more than the same bag all the time – I need to get myself out of the mindset that I must carry a big bag so I can fit every single thing + my laptop in it at all times. It also keeps the clutter out of whatever bag I carry, random receipts, etc., get organized every time I return home. Brilliant.
Do you think you could do that? Do you do it already? do you carry the same bag everyday?
