We had SUCH a beautiful week here this week – I feel so lucky, given what some of you guys had to deal with! I’m so excited about this “Wearing” project now that I’m into it a couple of weeks. I can’t wait to look back at the end of each month at what I actually wore. I’m also interested in the numbers: how many different items I wore, how many times I wore certain things, and how many things in my closet didn’t get worn at all.
I’m not great at accounting (duh), or being meticulous about tracking things, so this is new for me, but I think it will be a wonderful exercise. Has anyone else been tracking their wardrobe this week? What have you learned from it?
What I learned this week:
JP cowl neck “sweatshirt” – I’m not going to get rid of this, but I will save it more for wearing at home. The cowl neck bothers me; I can never get it to look/feel right, and it leaves my chest cold if it’s cool enough to wear long sleeves. Conclusion: NO MORE COWL necks for me.
Madewell shirt – I still like this, but if I’m ever going to replace it, or buy a black version, I’d like to find something less oversized, and more “straight” if that makes sense. I’d like it to be still long, but not as wide at my waist as this shirt is, so it’ll be better for layering, and help me define my waist a bit more. Conclusion: for button-down shirts anyway, straighter, and longer is better than wider on my body type.
Rag & Bone jeans – these are definitely warmer weather jeans, but I dug them out of the box I have in the top of my closet of things that I’m still on the fence over to wear to Austin on Monday. They’re keepers, I think, but definitely for warm weather. Conclusion: I don’t need any more distressed jeans – one pair is enough 😉
I hope you have a great weekend!!!!
