Oh dear, I’m afraid I don’t have very positive news to report. Nothing tragic, I just completely derailed from my New Year’s resolution. Now that March has arrived I’m able to look back at the month of February and come to the conclusion that I, my dear friends, have been a-shopping. A dress, couple of skirts, cardigans, and a couple of blouses. Resolution and budget be damned! It definitely was not intentional, but for the past few weeks I have just been in this type of funk regarding my clothes and what I own. Looking through certain items, I felt that they didn’t flatter, no longer my style, or no longer were a good fit with my current lifestyle. It could have something to do with turning 30 a couple of months ago and readjusting to the new digits, and it might have to do with getting situated to an office environment and realizing that I’m no longer running to and from classes. And another factor to consider is that I like to change my mind every once in a while, so after some time my personal style evolves, goes through mood swings, and craves for something different.
If anyone’s curious as to where I’ve been shopping, it’s been none other than J Crew and a bit of Target. The Crew is great for updating wardrobe staples like cardigans and pencil skirts, and Target really delivered on a couple of pencil skirts as well, at $23 a pop. I’ve been selective in my choices and over-analyzed everything to make sure they could sustain multiple seasons and exude a classic personal style. Almost everything bought has been on sale, well, and does a JCrew rewards card count?! So now that the new month has arrived, I am detoxing. Still giving my closet the critical eye and will be posting more items here that might serve inspiration to other stylish gals.
So tell me, does anyone else go through this? Has anyone ever chucked everything and started anew?
