spring wardrobe inventory

spring wardrobe inventory

It may be premature, but I went ahead and switched out my winter wardrobe with my spring one. While doing so, I took inventory. I had SIX black dresses, so I will take one to the consignment shop. I have 4 short sleeve black tops, so will avoid buying any more. I've worn my Eileen Fisher silk shell so much that it's in need of a replacement. I admitted to myself that there were a few pieces that I wasn't excited to wear even though I felt like I had spent too much on them. Luckily, they're quality pieces that I'll be able to sell. All in all, I got rid of about 8 or 9 things, which is a pretty big percentage when you have a small wardrobe!

I'm feeling the urge to add new pieces just for the sake of new, but will try to work with what I have for a while to see whether that urge is necessary or not. Things I WANT, but am not sure I need yet are: this Everlane top or this Mango one, these Everlane pants, this crop top, and maaybe even these shoes in blush (!!!) since everything else I own is black, white or denim. 

What are you planning to add for spring?

So, I'm at a really awkward age. Not the teeth grinding awkwardness of puberty or the "did I really do that?" awkwardness of the early twenties, but the awkwardness of "I've lived through that trend already, do I wear it again?" Yep, things I wore in high school and college are back. I mean, I know the 90's have already hit vintage status, and I definitely did do grunge the first time around too, but these feel more recent. Some trends I don't have a desire to do (off-the-shoulder-blouses), some I might (culottes), and there's one I'm pretty into (again): the mule. Yep, the sandal of the early 2000's and my college years (wait, who am I kidding, I graduated college in 2000) is back. Pretty much in the same incarnation too. Oh well, I liked it then and I like it now. Here are a few pairs I'm eyeing.
