Wear It Wednesday

I haven't been posting outfits as much lately, but I have been weeding things out of my closet!  I have a huge garbage bag full of donations to take to Goodwill; I thought about listing some items online at Poshmark or something, but in the end the hassle to me of listing/shipping kind of turned me off to it.  Meh.  Donation to a good cause sounds better.

Sweater: Forever 21, Jeans: Old Navy, Boots: Target
I felt very French in this outfit.  Or maybe nautical.  A French sailor? 

Cardigan: Kohl's, Top: Nordstrom Rack, Skirt: Target, Boots: Target
I couldn't decide if this outfit was librarian or Mad Men inspired. 

Cardigan: Target, Top: ???, Jeans: Old Navy, Shoes: Payless
 I wore this combo for Mardi Gras!  The jeans are olive, so I had the whole color combo thing down.  Not the most flattering combo of colors or fit, but it was a busy day.
Peplum Top: Forever 21, Striped Shirt: Zara, Necklace: Etsy, Jeans: Old Navy, Boots: eBay
This peplum top is one of my favorite things, but it's been too cold to wear it.  So I decided to try layering, and I think it went well!  It made me feel skinnier than some of the other oufits here. 

Dress: Peebles, Cardigan: Old Navy, Shoes: Nine West
This dress never fails to inspire compliments.  I wore it in Hawaii in 2011, to work in 2012, and in 2013 to a DAR luncheon.  I like it with the cardigan and have worn it exactly like this before.

I do find that lately I haven't been feeling the most inspired or confident in my outfit choices.  A lot of it has to do with weight fluctuation changing how some of my favorites fit.  It also has to do with my clothing being more suitable for when I lived in Savannah vs. Nashville.  My office is always cold, and the temperatures are definitely not the same here!  So I think what I need to do is let go of things that don't fit and invest in solid pieces that are right for this climate.  I haven't bought any clothes since my sweater splurge at Forever 21... I'm more calculated now.

Anyone got some outfit inspiration going on?


  1. I jut purged my closet again today and let go of some cute things that I just never wear. My closet is finally filled with 50%love/25%like/25%basics - working on upping the love percentage. The past 6 months have helped since I started my standards for keeping a purchase.

    I also adore that dress!!! A leopard belt tied The same way would look cute too.

    1. Yeah, I'm low on the "love" in my closet, so that is what I need to work on. I think purging is helping me tremendously.

      The dress was $12 from the clearance rack at the Peebles or whatever in Hinesville. Near the Hardee's. Ha!
