finding my style…part 2

Back in November I shared with you my excitement about learning to dress with less fuss
thanks to  Hayley Morgan’s (The Tiny TwigThe No Brainer Wardrobe book.
I did not think it would take be a few months to get back to you on the next step in that process.
but it did and here we are…

I am thrilled by the change having matching hangers makes..
Hayley suggested this in her book..

below is the before picture:

one thing I have not fully narrowed down is the way i will organize my closet.
Hayley suggests doing it by how you get dressed..

oh the choices #firstworldproblems

i finally completed the dreaded task of going through my clothes.
weeding out the too small (aka keep dreaming), the not so pretty (aka what was i thinking), and the plain i just don’t wear.
i then laid out my clothes and looked at what I had.
i decided that I had a decent amount of pieces that could be used in multiple ways but was missing a few staple items..
again i relied on my pinterest board here... for inspiration. 




here is the list of items I decided were on the “need” list:

  • black/white striped long sleeve
  • chambray shirt
  • mustard yellow cardigan
  • black flats
  • blazer
  • brown flats
  • colored skinny jeans (mustard)
  • teal cardigan
  • leopard cardi or blouse
  • purple cardigan
  • navy blue cardigan
  • tall brown boots
  • floral scarf
  • hoodie/sweater
  • see-thru button up

I was blessed with some Christmas Money so off to the stores I went

(mind you i was still determined to use sale racks, clearance, coupons and thrift stores)

I am happy to say that based off my list here is what is left:

  • black/white striped long sleeve
  • chambray shirt
  • mustard yellow cardigan
  • black flats
  • leopard cardi or blouse
  • blazer
  • brown flats
  • colored skinny jeans (mustard)
  • teal cardigan
  • purple cardigan
  • navy blue cardigan
  • tall brown boots 
  • floral scarf
  • hoodie/sweater
  • see-thru button up

I’d say i did pretty good… and that I have an obsession with stripes!
stay tuned for step 3 …
