My husband finally had what I would call an intervention about my wardrobe. Yup, he called me out on some of the clothes I had in my closet...and to be honest some of the clothes I still wear out in public too. In my defense I do like to look good and more often than not I dress well. But sometimes I do pull out some pretty bad articles of clothing. I know that some of you are cringing at the thought of someone in bad clothes.
He was totally right. I was wearing clothes that were to big and old (clothes from college...that was like 5 years ago!). Again I have to say this only happened sometimes, but they did need to go.
So they did.
The weekend I wrote this post I also went through all of my clothes and donated two big old bags of clothes to the Salvation Army. I literally felt like a new woman.
Now there is room in my closet. You know what that means? I am filling all those empty spaces with new clothes.
This weekend Dan and I had brunch in Back Bay at Geoffreys and then we took a little stroll and somehow magically appeared in H&M.
How did that happen? Such a minor detail. Anyway.
Want to see what I got?
I know it doesn't look that exciting but this dress can be worn with anything. And it fits like a glove....I actually ended up buying one in another color. It is perfect with heels or flip flops, you can wear it with a scarf or a blazer, and the best part...it looks good all by itself too.
A good blazer is something I have wanted for a while but never really found one I liked. This one goes with just about everything and looks even cuter with the sleeves cuffed (the lining is striped!). And yes it looks perfect with the dress above.
I did get a few other things that I can't seem to find on their website. Either way I am trying really hard to buy clothes that are practical and can literally be worn in 1,000 different ways with 1,000 different things. I have loads of fun clothes in my closet but I am trying to stock up on the basics. So excuse the boring purchases that I am so thrilled about. There will be more clothes coming since I have been bitten by the shopping bug.
