Fashintern, I can imagine that having a folder with my pics of "highest happiness" outfits would remind me of the best way to wear certain items. I don't do that specifically, but I do keep a WIW photo folder find that when I think I'm feeling tired of something or "over it," looking over the times I wore it and felt great can help me rekindle some joy and get more happy wear out of my clothing.
Sterling, I need to find my equivalent of your t-shirts. I don't like the way most short sleeves fit me, so my wardrobe consists mostly of sleeveless tops and various toppers. There are days, though, when I really just want something in-between!
Jessikams, you must have light-colored cats? We have one white cat, but the other is a tuxedo...no color is safe from the hair!
Greyscale, it does feel a little like making weekly capsule wardrobes, doesn't it? This week has been quite different weather-wise than last here, so for me, it's almost like wearing a different seasonal capsule.
Runcarla, I had a similar experience recently with my black ponté pants. I wore them for my flight to California a few weeks ago and when we landed, instead of heading to the art museum as we'd planned, my husband drove straight to the beach (I swear, he couldn't help it). Those black pants felt DEAD WRONG on the Santa Monica pier. Way too heavy and dark.
JAileen, I'm having similar weather difficulties here! It was 58° when I left the house this morning and 94° by mid-afternoon. I'm enjoying the unique sensation of being cold in the mornings, though, so I haven't been bothering with sweaters or jackets. The cool temps pass quickly enough!
Joy, you have Colorado layering down to a science!
StyleFan, I'm always happy to have photos, even if they're not great and for my eyes only.
SarahD8, I love when new items get worn immediately! I like your rating system, especially because you use it as a tool for outfits rather than individual items. I think it would be a mistake to write individual items off just because of one or two low-happiness outfits. Sometimes, it's all in the styling.
