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.

Sick Day!

It's a hop, skip, and a jump from happy, fun, music-time, to waking up in the middle of the night feeling horrible, terrible, and not very good.

I will spare you the details, because I don't think you'll want to hear them, and I will keep my post short today because I have to write reports on the children in my class.

Better to save my writing mojo for the kids. Or, rather better to use what little energy I have on the reports instead of my blahg...

Wish me luck!


My primary concern today was comfort without repeating. I think this outfit fits the bill, uneventful as it may be.

Shirt: Clothing swap.

Pants: Goodwill. Mossimo.

My little bear remained a bright light in my day!


  1. You look super cute, loooooove that shirt and HaHa Bear's outfit is cute too!

  2. I love HaHa's outfit too. A little kooky, but fun nonetheless!
