I'm playing catch up a lot this week. It's been busy, but I did made a discovery. (I'm a lot like Christopher Columbus.) I realized that I do wear a lot of what's in my closet, which is making it harder for me to find pieces I wear infrequently, unless I start pulling out my clothes for specific occasions (weddings, funerals, etc...)
So, on Day 14, I wore this ring, which I really like, but usually wear it in Fall or Winter. That being said, I'm not sure I've worn it since Dec of last year. My grandmother used to wear it and I thought it looked huge on her, and now I love it on me. She was right when she said, "Someday you'll want this." I want it now. KEEPING IT.
On Day 15, you can tell by my expression, I was wearing a plain old t-shirt from the Gap. The funny thing is, there was time I loved this shirt (and it's sister shirts in black, white, green, gray, and purple) so much that the thought of wearing a different style or brand of t-shirt threw me for a loop - why would I ever do such a thing? And then I realized I had 10+ t-shirts, all the same, with no...oomph. They were just t-shirts. Some had spots on them, and I still wore them, justifying that nobody would really see the tiny stains. Soon I realized that when I was going out at night, I was picking the t-shirts without stains, not nice new shirts or blouses or anything with better fit or style, just t-shirts, the ones without stains. Those were my "good t shirts." So, now I'm not wearing them, except occasionally to the gym. I put the navy one on and though I have to admit I didn't hate it, it doesn't really do anything for me. Not sure if I should or shouldn't keep it. Thoughts?
