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.

Fallin' in Soup!

Tonight I made soup. I often forget how lovely a soup can be. I rarely make it for the family, but I am thinking it is something I should do more often. Soup is good food.

I had a wonderful day at work. The kids were so excited and sweet, and the morning started with a fabulous concert!

Who could ask for more?!


Sweater: Goodwill. Lux. I seem to like things from this brand...

Shirt: Cousin hand-me-down. Mossimo.

Pants: Cousin hand-me-down again! Gap!

Shoes: Mossimo.
