 I hope you all had a wonderful weekend! When it comes to my closet, let's just say it's pretty much full of items I wear weekly and then even more full of pieces I haven't worn in over a year. With the heat wave in full force I decided that I needed to find an outfit that would keep me cool despite the miserable weather. I live in Massachusetts. It should not be this hot. No really. So I found this white skirt that I bought on clearance at the end of the season last year and this top from over two years ago that was my favorite tank for years. New pieces made their way to the front of my closet and this hung at the back, so I'm excited I found this top again. In the second photo I'm wearing a Limited sweater from two years ago. This is what I'll be wearing in the air conditioning. I like to show you all how I layer, too because I think that can be particularly challenging in the summer months. I feel like I'm wearing an entirely new outfit despite the fact that everything is older. Have you gone shopping in your closet lately?


  1. Whenever I plan to go shopping (outside of my closet) for quite a bit of new things, I have started a new habit of going through my closet completely (at least once a year) and deciding whether to get rid of things, to keep something for now, or to keep because it is a LOVE! I think I've went through it almost 4 times this year... crazy right? :) But I'm starting to think about different ways I can wear it with things I have already when I go through my closet. This way I don't always go buy new items (but I sure do love a good deal!)

    1. 4 times a year sounds really smart! I need to do a better job of going through things!

  2. Love that top paired with the cardi :)
