Too much stuff

all items remix'd
tank&skirt: Old Navy
sandals: Target
sunnies: Dsquared
necklace: Tiffany's, gift'd

I just spent the better half of the afternoon organizing my closet. Or I should say, attempting to organize my closet. We have limited closet space so I store winter clothes in the summer and vice versa. While I was doing this, I tried on some things to determine if they were worth keeping.

I purged my closet of 30+ items, including 5 pairs of jeans. I decided that nothing dates a person than jeans that don't fit correctly. I didn't realize how low my low-rise jeans were until I tried them all on. And isn't low-rise so 2000?

Also, how many pairs of jeans does one person need, especially one who wears more skirts now that she has been documenting her life in outfits? Even with getting rid of 5 pairs, I still have 13 left in my closet, which should still last me for a while...except that I got rid of my one pair of white jeans because they were from '04 or ''s never-ending!

Hey! I love your new header! :)

Haha, I probably have almost ten pairs of jeans myself, but they each are appropriate for a different situation! Uh, funny how we justify things to ourselves, huh? ;o)

Simply cute. I've only got a handful of jeans, but it's so hard to find ones that fit. You're right about certain cuts of jeans being dated looking.

hahah, I also attempt to clean my closet a lot, but from the sound of it, it seems like you really cleaned yours out! I only have 3-4 pairs of jeans, but that's all I need since I wear tons of dresses anyway :)

Looks like a lovely casual outfit.

I need more skirts so I can do outfits like yours more often. Seems very convenient on a hot day.

Heehee, that IS a lot of jeans. :)

I try to do a major purge every year. It always feels great to narrow things down a bit.
