I have been so crazy busy this month... have been meaning to write this for ages. This is just my first half of the month update...

I had three goals, which I talked about here. In a nutshell:
1. To stop shopping.
2. Wear and enjoy my new clothes. I did lots of shopping in April and May, and have been amassing quite a collection of new spring things. Just waiting for spring to actually wear them!
3. Don't go out of the house wearing things I wouldn't go out of the house in.

Here are some of the outfit results:
1,2. To a burial... pouring rain, so great opportunity (prob my last for the year) to wear my EF skirted leggings
3. Not new.
4. New sweater from BR, hoping to expand my options to wear the windowpane pants.
5. New pants from BR. Love these! Worn for evening errands
6. New top from Nordies, bought back in April. Navy skirt from BR.
7. New J.Crew top. And the Holt shoes.
8,9. New clutch - bought a while ago, but not used yet. And the pants I got a couple of years ago but have seldom worn them... the are silk and I think I'm a little afraid of them :). Wore this outfit to my DD's year end synchro banquet.
10. New Madewell tee. Worn to the school spring fair.
11. New pants again. I do not like this outfit... proportions are all off for me.
12. New EF linen sweater.

Oh wow... putting it all out there like this seems positively extravagant. Embarrassing almost. But I am really enjoying these pieces, so want to share! :). More to come...

I find that these are all fairly simple, perhaps not as "interesting" or edgy as I like for the winter... but I think I'm getting better at figuring out proportions. Except for #11

Thanks for reading/looking! Suggestions, improvements, etc welcome as always.
