For a long time now, I’ve
wantedneeded to purge + revamp my closet. Allie’s recent post and conversations with my style muse & friend Chelsea lit a fire under me and inspired me to tackle the project. This weekend, I finally did just that. I went through everything; I pulled out what I hadn’t worn in a year or no longer fit and made three piles: one to donate, one to sell in my instagram shop and one to keep.
By the end of the weekend I had 50% more closet space and $200 extra dollars in my pocket to replace holes in my wardrobe with new, basic + timeless pieces. I’ve been pinning inspiration like crazy and started browser window shopping online today. These are just a few pieces I’ve got my eye on for when I start collecting new items. As you can see, I’m basically obsessed with Zara and H&M however, I’ve heard good things about places like Everlane that I’ll be checking out as well. If you’ve got any similar places you’d like to share with me, please do!
Did you know you can now shop H&M online in the US? Oh, boy. I am trying to really limit my miscellaneous purchases now that I have a car payment again but a little window shopping never hurt anyone, right? These are a just a few items that caught my eye as I was perusing the site. Also, after putting this together I realized I’m so ready for Fall. Dark tones, boots, sweaters? Yes.
In just a few weeks I will be vacationing in Nashville, Tennessee with my cousin for the CMA Festival–we are SO pumped to see some of our favorite artists perform! A lot of people find it odd and/or amusing that I’m into country music. I’d say its a guilty pleasure of mine but the truth is, I don’t feel guilty about it at all, ha! There’s something about country music that’s fun and puts me in a good mood no matter what.
I’ve started a mental checklist of what I want to pack in my suitcase and above are a few things I’ve added. I hear the weather there is crazy humid + hot so bring on the short shorts, tank tops, cowgirl boots–and maybe even a little whiskey for good measure.
Nashvillians, any recs for what to bring/see/do while we’re there? The festival is later in the day each night so we will have some free time to explore, so I’d love to know. I’ve already got a little visit to these birds in the works.
I’m so glad Spring is finally here because it means I can break out my pastel wardrobe again. All of my favorite trends like soft colors, floral patterns, wedges and suede flats are all back. I rounded up some of my favorite shoes I’ve seen around lately. Which ones are your favorite?
