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.

A Late Post!

Oh, boy, am I late to post tonight. And, it's a school night! I need to try to post right after I put the kids to bed. However, we got home late tonight and after I made dinner and dealt with Charlie's injustice inspired melt-down, I fell asleep nursing HaHa.

Yes, she is still nursing. Much to my dismay. I don't offer, and I do refuse as much as I can, but she still is very dedicated to "bah-bah". I am thinking that it has only to do with the comfort aspect. I really thought she would be done when she started daycare.

Oh, well. Maybe one day.


Shirt: Friend hand me down. Sweet pea. This particular friend got rid of a bunch of perfect condition clothes because she got her colors done and they were not in her "spectrum". Lucky me!

Pants: Cousin hand me down. Again a lucky score. Brand new from the Gap, tags still on!

Shoes: Mossimo. My old stand-by's!
