Spring's Arrival

The calendar has officially marked the start of Spring, so there is now only waiting for the actual weather to reflect it, and dressing without a necessary additional layer in the time being.

Since I've been home I've been feeling the need to do a big closet clean out. I've been trying really hard not to shop this year, and with the exception of a pair of pajamas, I haven't purchased any clothes or accessories this calendar year (you already know about the shopping I snuck in during the dwindling hours of 2018).

Of course through some brand collaborations, new things have arrived all the same, and I'm trying to reconcile my closet so that it is no long in a state of chaos; and I don't have to buy more hangers. I know that has been my mantra for quite sometime, but clothing being perpetually camped out on a chair isn't much better of a solution.

I've tried listing things on eBay, mostly as a way of assuaging my guilt when it comes to things I've barely, or maybe even never worn. Though for the amount of effort it takes to list things, to only sell at a fraction of the price I paid and even less than I'd hoped to get, I'm not sure it's worth it. I might just send a box to ThredUP, knowing full well I'll get pennies for every piece, but it might be better than nothing.

Are you planning on any spring cleaning this year? Or did you start in January with the rest of the Marie Kondo obsessed crowd?

Repeating Sequences

I chopped another inch off the hem of these jeans. In reviewing these photos I'm pretty sure I stand by that decision, though it looks like more than an inch when I compare them to the photos of the last time I wore them. I swear I did measure.

I also proceeded to style them in a nearly identical manner; slim fitting top tucked in for the full effect of the high waist, flat loafers, coat in a shade of brown, same bag.

There is comfort in styling things in similar ways, it worked before, therefore it should work again. While it's fun to browse Pinterest and look to others for new ways to style my pieces, it's much easier to look to my own archives.

Shadow Play

Anyone who's ever taken outfit photos with me knows I try to avoid direct sunlight and harsh shadows as much as I possibly can. You will find me running to the shady side of the street, or under a big tree, pillar or any object that provide just enough coverage from the sun.

On this afternoon, however, I was feeling bold, wondering if I could make the shadows work and play up the drama on an otherwise pretty simple outfit. The sun was out, I thought I might as well enjoy it.
