I love Janice’s idea of her dream wardrobe – and I thought I would just create favorite outfits for now, leading up to a dream wardrobe. As I’m going through and cleaning out and taking inventory of my closet(s), I’ll make note of my absolute favorite outfits and either photograph them, or create collages with them, so I can have evidence! Oh…I wonder if I can find a Polaroid camera! there have to be some still around – wouldn’t it be great to have photos of favorite outfits right there in my closet, so I am reminded whenever I’m in there the combinations I love? I could print digital photos I guess also…
Here’s my problem though – everything I own goes together (neutrals FTW!!) and I only buy/keep things I love. Or maybe I don’t. I do have things in my closet that I THINK I love, but then I put them on and take them off again only to wear something else. That will be part of my homework this weekend, then also, putting things on and noting if I want to take it off again in favor of something else I like better, or something that looks better on me. Those things I take off most frequently should go in the “get rid of” pile – or at least be relegated to the other closet for a while. If I never go back to claim them, THEN it’s time to get rid of them.
I’m going to be a busy, busy girl!!! Good thing my husband’s away all weekend, so I can spread out and make a mess 😉
I also need to finalize my packing list for San Francisco next week (we’re leaving on Wednesday to go to Austin, then flying to SFO on Thursday from Austin, returning on Sunday). I think I’ve got my outfits mostly down, and I know that for 5 days I should only really bring two pairs of pants (according to Laurel’s packing math!), but I can’t really do that if I bring my James Perse sweatpants because they’re really only good for two wears. UGH.
Hopefully it will all come together after I spend some time in deep with my clothes. And a nice bottle of red wine 😉
Have a great weekend!!!
