Over my Spring Break, one of my goals was to really clean out my spring and summer wardrobe. I ended up with a nice stack for the consignment shop that doesn’t accept stuff from Old Navy, Target, or other “cheaper” places, a stack for the consignment store that does accept from those places and pays cash on the spot (but not much!), and then a donation stack.
I never really know how to arrange my hanging clothes. Do I do sleeve length? Color? What do you do?
These are my blouses and tops that are both long and short sleeve but appropriate for spring and summer:
These are my tees and things to wear over tees like kimonos and sweaters:
These are my sleeveless:
I don’t feel comfortable wearing sleeveless without anything over, by the way.
Are you surprised at my relatively small collection of things for the top part of the body?
I am trying to wear each thing until the end of the school year and wait for it…
I am also trying to hold off on any more spring and summer clothing purchases until I get out of school. I am doing this (or trying to) for a couple of reasons – I have plenty, I am trying to save some money for our home renovations and a vacation, and I just want to be super thoughtful about what comes in my closet.
My plan is to write things I “need” in my phone memo.
It finally turned warm after I had worn joggers, leggings, and jeans most of Spring Break.
I wore my new clear sandals, my pink Walmart Time and Tru cut offs, and an old Target floral bouse:
For school, I wore my new Loft pink top for the first time but paired it with jeans and my new New Balance because I had to walk to and from school that day. My students couldn’t believe I got the shoes for $13 from my consignment shop! Also, my sweater is super old from a consignment shop.
I really liked this simple but chic outfit on Joanna from Cup of Jo blog.
My feet were so happy the day before that I wanted to wear the shoes again and it worked for me to “copy” her outfit. Well, it flopped. I did do a little half tuck after this picture and I decided to cut off my skirt when I got home to make it frayed like hers! I won’t be able to wear it to school anymore, but that’s ok. I think a little shorter will be more flattering. How about I fall down a rabbit hole of cut off jean skirts now? Ha!
Do you screenshot outfits you see, too? I think it’s a great way to add new life to your wardrobe. It doesn’t have to be exact, either. Don’t get too bogged down with having the exact components or that will defeat the purpose.
So…what have you been wearing lately?
Thanks for visiting me today!
