Baby, It's Cold Outside

Winter has finally made it's way to the southeast. It's cold, ya'll! Highs in the 20s and30s and even some snow. Honestly, it's perfect Christmas weather. Especially since I was wearing short sleeves on Thanksgiving. This is uncharted territory, and I am loving it. For now. We'll reevaluate after New Years.

I have some news. Ahem.
It started out with weeding through my closet after realizing that some of my favorite clothes just don't fit. I ruthlessly sold and gave away things that I hadn't worn in a year and things that I had worn that just looked bad. It felt great. Then, I realized it was more. I wanted to declutter my life {on many levels} and live more simply. {Don't worry. I'm not going to start spouting yoga-y mantras at you. Not right now, at least.} It's obvious that I'll never live a minimalist lifestyle by any means, but I want things to have purpose. So, I decluttered the apartment. But, that's for another post. Here's the news you've been dying to hear: I've decided to jump on board with one of my new favorite bloggers and start a 30 outfit remix challenge.

It's so easy to run to the mall whenever you feel like you're in a fashion rut or "have nothing to wear." But once the new and shiny wears off, what are you left with? Another piece of clothing that you don't really love, you just loved that it was new. Well, ladies {and possibly gentleman?}, I am done. As difficult as it may be, I want to genuinely love everything in my closet.

So, here goes. I've chosen 30 pieces from my closet {including shoes!} to create 30 different outfits. And you, my lovely readers, get to take the journey with me. I know. You're thrilled.

Happy remixing.

Looking lovely and I adore the pockets in your pencil skirt! I recently de-cluttered my life and closet giving things to those who can use them...but feel I could do some more!

I am embarking on the same. I have no idea how it works/how it is going to work. but the amounts of clothing are just out of this world ridiculous. so hard to part with those things that are still great things but truly-- how often do you wear it? oh i'm scared. but excited.
