Plus trading out the cute cotton skirts and sandals for boots and tights and sweaters, my favorite season. But the pile was a little overwhelming. What have I gotten myself into? Should I even admit how many cardigans I own? Cardigans and necklaces? And scarves? I might have an addiction.
But I dug in. Oh, I persevered through this daunting, seemingly insurmountable pile of crap that I've accumulated. I made a sizeable pile of giveaways. I even went through the shoes and dresser drawers. Two hours later and I have a clean, organized closet. I know it isn't like I cured cancer or taught a child how to read, but who doesn't like a clean closet?
Now the fun part comes tomorrow, matching up all of my existing pieces and trying to whip up some new combinations and new outfits. I have new mustard yellow shoes, very 1940's, that are looking for an outfit. So I might treat myself to a brief shopping trip to spice things up. I'm thinking some boldly colored or textured tights, maybe a new red cardigan and a couple of layering pieces with some bright color or pattern. Nothing too trendy, just fun. So what would you buy to jazz up your wardrobe this year? What am I missing? What do I need this season?
