I did something a little different this year when it comes to switching seasons as far as clothes go. I usually do a quick browse of my closet, but away any obvious winter clothes (whether they still fit or not) and then just add new clothes as I get them. This year I decided to really clean out my closet.
I started by pulling out all my clothes that I had not worn since moving into my new place back in August, including the stuff in storage. I tried it all on and separated it into different piles: Keep, Send to Thred Up, Sell on Poshmark and Toss. I kept very few things. I sent any clothes that are considered upscale and were still in good condition to Thred Up. I ended up getting $7.60 back, not bad. Most of my stuff is in my Poshmark closet. It’s mostly stuff that doesn’t fit me anymore. The Toss pile consisted of clothes with rips and tears.
Once I cleaned out my closet (and figured out I did NOT need new hangers), I started to do some shopping for seasonal clothes. Below are the clothes I have picked up so far.
1. Madden Girl Bennie Sandal: I got these in black. I have worn them once so far and have loved them! Super comfy and I can usually get at least three years out of my Steve Madden/Madden Girl shoes.
2.LC Lauren Conrad Lace Tee: The top I got is this same berry color, but a different design on the front. It works great with slacks or jeans. This was part of my Valentine’s Day shopping trip courtesy of my wonderful boyfriend.
4.ELLE Mixed-Media Crisscross Tank: The one I got is a light pink with flowers at the bottom. I can wear it with slacks and my blazer and then change into shorts for some time outside. I am all about clothes that can be casual or dressy. This was the last piece from the V-Day shopping.
5.Cut-Out Swing Blouse: This I just got over the weekend. It was on sale for $12.00 so I couldn’t help myself. Old Navy is my weakness.
6.Printed High-Neck Trapeze Tank: I got mine in a lavender color. I really like the high neck and the light feel. The downside is it seems to always be wrinkly.
7.Printed-Swing Tank: This is probably my least favorite purchase. I liked the bright color and in the dressing room it looked cute. Once I wore it all day, I figured out that it didn’t quite lay right on me so I was constantly adjusting it.
8.Mock-Neck Swing Tank: I love the cut-outs on this top and the light smoky gray color. I do have to wear a cami under because of the cut-outs, but I don’t mind.
9.Everyday Twill Shorts: I love Old Navy’s Twill Shorts. I bought these in khaki because I have a pair in gray and a pair in black that I almost fit back into. (I couldn’t get myself to part with either).
10. Cuffed Linen Shorts: I cannot express how much I love these shorts. I got them in the blush color and they are amazing. The color is enough to be fun, but still quite neutral. I love that they are drawstring. I just started Weight Watchers, so these shorts can be worn all summer even when I lose weight!
I did use my Thred Up credit to buy some red shorts and a teal top. They should be shipping any day now. I am so excited!
