It was lovely to hear the responses to yesterday's post.  Ultimately, dressing for "you" is important.  Style is subjective and that's what so great about fashion. 

Following this line of thought, I am going to perform a summer cleaning of my closet.  Each item of clothing I own is a memory of something, somewhere, or a feeling of a moment in time.  This may sound crazy, but I can remember where I got everything and where I have worn things to.  For this reason, I have a difficult time letting pieces go.  But, I need a fresh start to my wardrobe, and there's no better time to do this.  

For me, the process is always time consuming, but I have keep certain questions in mind as I decide what stays and what goes:
  • How often do I wear this?
  • Have I worn this within the past year?
  • What condition is this in?
  • Am I still inspired to wear this for future outfits?
  • Why else do I still want to keep this?  (i.e. are my reasons more sentimental or practical?)

Does anyone else go through a process like this?  Is it as difficult for you to let pieces go?


  1. You look so adorable! I really love the striped blazer and your layering. Great styling!


  2. I am really loving all the layering in this outfit. Great look!
