I wore this out to my birthday dinner last night. It was the only "dressing" I did all weekend... it was so freaking cold I only left the house to drive DD around and get some groceries, and I was so bundled up it didn't matter what I was wearing!

The "challenge thinking" for this outfit was for what you don't see... the tee I chose to wear under the sweater. I would normally have grabbed a cheapie to wear, but as I wanted to be cognizant of my capsule numbers, instead I grabbed an EF tee, that I am likely to repeat. I did like the way the necklines perfectly aligned.

Does this mean I should consider getting rid of some of my cheapies? I don't know. I would truly rather launder things that I don't care about, if they are comfortable, do the job, and aren't visible, to keep the good things good (but still wear when they WILL be seen, of course). Maybe it means I don't buy any more cheapies? Maybe it means at the end of the challenge, I evaluate how often these type of tops got worn, laundered, how they were worn, and THEN evaluate.
