I’m about to change my closet over from summer to fall, but here’s an outfit post from a few months ago!
This summer, I was inspired to clean out my closet yet again. I have done this countless times, admittedly, but this time I was ruthless. The result was a full kitchen trash bag of items in great condition but not right for me – obviously, this meant it was time for a clothing swap.
However, a funny thing happened. The morning after my purge, I woke up thinking about one of the skirts I’d put aside for the swap. Suddenly, after months of not wearing the H&M find, I had an idea for an outfit! So I removed it from the pile and walked out the door a bit later wearing this concoction:
I really liked it! Very fresh and fun and feminine. (It was perfect for a day of church and girl time with friends.) I realized that I’d been at a loss for shirts to wear with it, but that’s ‘cause I’d been forgetting about this Ann Taylor top. Interestingly, when I put this black shell with a wide belt like this one, lots of people think I’m wearing a dress rather an a combination. Not that I’m complaining!
The experience was a good reminder of a basic fact in purging – be sure to wait a couple days before finally disposing of things. You may find one or two of the items aren’t finished with you yet! (Of course, if you’re looking at keeping everything a few days later, that’s a different story.)
Have you purged your closet recently? Did you end up reclaiming any of the things you gave away?
