This week brought the first cold weather snap that warranted a jacket (and multiple layers.) This Florida girl has lost her Northern roots and had to layer up to stay warm. I’ve been drooling over this jacket and finally realized, I have the parts to make that look right in my closet! Tossing this vest over my denim jacket I’ve had forever gave me the look I was after for free.
Which brings me to the next point.
I’ve been having some growing pains lately with my closet and wanting/needing new things. I have a ton of stuff. Yet when I look through my things I find that not everything (or even half of everything) really makes me happy. I don’t get that feeling, the one that says, “This is so you!”
I tend to wear the same things over and over again. I’m beginning to really look at what I gravitate to (longer tops with fun details, skinny jeans, booties, and simpler pieces with graphic patterns that make me feel like….me.
I’ve been thinking a lot about what I’ve been buying and if I really like it or is it the rush of getting something new? I’m trying to be more grateful for what I have and not feel the need to go out and get more, just because I can. The people who’s personal style I really admire don’t all have a lot of money, yet they look like them. I want to be like that, too. So I’m working on buying less, being more thoughtful with my purchases, and using what I have in new ways.
