My activities for today included taking the results of my wardrobe edit part 2 to Goodwill, doing some errands, and attended an evening rehearsal. It felt SO good to get rid of 48 items that I no longer wanted in my wardrobe. (3 dresses, 4 jeans, 6 pants, 5 shirts, 10 sweaters, 7 tops, 6 toppers, 2 skirts, 2 shoes, 1 outerwear, 2 workout).

I feel I have made a significant change in my wardrobe and approach to dressing in the past few months, and I'm pretty psyched about it. Thanks to Angie and all the members of YLF!!!

I started out wearing the outfit in #1, but did NOT like the proportions of the Talbots Shetland Herringbone Blazer, so I replaced it with the N&Z tweed jacket in #2. Also swapped the sneakers for monk strap loafers. The herringbone blazer is lovely and hardly worn but it's going in the back of my closet for now.

  • Nic & Zoe Blazer: my first top pic purchase from last April inspired by Angie's spring tweed jacket blog posting , also has a tiny bit of sparkle giving a sneak preview of Angie's more recent promise to share some of her copious supply of “glitz gene” with me, also thanks to “wear your wonderful wardrobe items” from July. In the past I would have considered this too “nice” for everyday wear.
  • First wear for these jeans, thanks to many, many different conversations about fit, wash, modern looks, and leaving no retail stone unturned.
  • First wear for this blush sweater thanks to a number of blog postings in recent months about this color.
  • Going with a low contrast look, a concept I never heard of until YLF.
  • Shoes and Bag a few years old.
