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.

The kids go back to school tomorrow! It is exciting, and scary, and strange... Do I really have a seven-year-old? I guess I do. Not to mention a 15 (by proxy), 5, and almost two-year-old. Oh my god. It's true - I'm an adult!

I guess I should not be surprised. It seems that it's been a long time coming...

Today I experienced something I've had happen to me many a time on this blog: I wear something out feeling very cute and put together, and then, when I see my photos of said outfit, I feel lame. It doesn't hold up. I did get a few compliments on my ensemble today. Three cheers for Red, White, and Blue!

Okay. I went to bed at 1-something and woke up at 6:30. I'm a little punchy and I really have no idea what I'm writing. I'm sure I will scare people off with this post, but hopefully I will redeem myself one day! Alright. To bed!

Happy Back-to-School!

  1. I love how Josh's funny airplane pillow gift for Charlie's bday is actually being put to good use by Haha. And he thought it was just a gag. Oh no, that beauty is getting mad beauty sleep on it.
