Birth of a project

I was getting dressed for a friend's birthday party and I didn't know what I was going to put on my body. I looked in my closet and it seemed empty, unpromising. I've had these moments before; everything was old, ill-fitting, or blah. I thought to myself, "Ugh! I have NOTHING to wear!" Then I began rifling through my closet and saw a forgotten shirt I loved and many more, and I realized I was crazy. I had plenty to wear, and plenty to choose from. My closet was FULL of treasures! At that moment I decided I would take a year to explore my closet and to add NOTHING new to my wardrobe.

I would create a NEW outfit for each day in order to maximize my wardrobe and shake up my style.

Basically, I would try to "snap out" of my fashion rut, and appreciate what I have.

It was my New Years' project:
One Closet, One Year.

On The Mend!

Thanks to my lovely mother-in-law, I was able to sleep in today, and I definitely feel better. By tomorrow I hope to be in ship shape! Fingers crossed.

Right now, at 10:55 p.m., I need to start baking cookies for Leo's teachers. Why I am just starting now is a long story which I will spare any of the kind souls who look upon this site. At any rate, I will use my under-the-weather fatigue as my "get out of blogging free" card, and get to my baking.


Print shirt: Goodwill. Jones New York. I love this cheerful print. It makes me feel better! Seen in : Non-Buyer's Remorse!

Blue sweater: Clothing swap. Express.

Khakis: Hand me down from my cousin. Gap.

Shoes: Mossimo. When these die, I want to get them remade. They are super comfy, and they go with everything!


  1. Love that shirt. Don't remember it from blogs past. Glad you're feeling better.

  2. I love this shirt too! Festive!
