Shen Dove Style: Wardrobe rules

Thursday, March 10, 2011

Wardrobe rules

teal and plaid
Skirt: vintage; Shirt: Old Navy; Belt: Urban Outfitters; Shoes: Go Jane Earrings: Mod Cloth

This skirt was purchased in January right before the 30 for 30.  Though I think this skirt is really better suited for the fall, I thought I'd get one wear out of it before spring arrives.  I have a rule I adhere to pretty strictly, that if I haven't worn something in the past season, that it has to get swapped, sold or given away.  There are some items in my closet that I will never part with, but for most items, if I don't wear it in a season, it makes no sense to have it taking up space in my closet.  I'm going to work on being smarter about what I add and subtract from my closet in the future.  From a fiscal standpoint it makes more sense for my spending habits to mature as I am growing older anyway. I don't want to be the little old lady that lived in the shoe because I chose to purchase clothing over saving my money.

Do you have any similar rules for how you make sure you are wearing all of the items you own?

That skirt, to a skirt lover like me, is heaven on earth.
Besos.

I love it! I can't believe believe you lasted so long not wearing it even if it was 30 for 30, I wouldn't have been able to resist. I could see you wearing it with bare legs, sandals, and a mustard top for spring... but I do agree, it seems like it's a heavier weight and you'll probably get more wear out of it in the fall!
