Saturday Shopping Spree!

This spring, I had this novel idea to clean my closet.  Okay, I’ll go ahead and be honest.  This is what really happened.  The husband said to me, “You need to do something with all this junk in this closet.”  I reluctantly agreed with him, but after sustaining numerous injuries while trying to pick out the outfit of the day, I knew that he was right.

This isn’t my closet. I promise. (I was way too embarrassed to post mine!)

Trying to quickly finish an overwhelming job, I began selling, giving away, and donating items from my closet at alarming speeds.  I just wanted to be done with cleaning that stupid closet.  I’m not sure that I even paid much attention to the things that I was getting rid of.  Basically, if it was on the floor, it had to go.  I guess I didn’t realize how often I threw some of my most coveted items on the floor of my closet as a result of coming home exhausted from a long day of work.

Nonetheless, I gave away so many things.  Now, I feel as if I need to replenish my wardrobe.  I need to spruce it up for back-to-school.  (It’s coming whether I’m ready or not!)  But, I don’t want to overload my closet again.  So this time around, when I shop, I will look for separates that can be paired and accessorized to make multiple outfits.  So, “less is more” will be my theme as I restock my closet.

Katie, over at Hems for Her, was my inspiration for this bright idea with her post, 7X7: 7 Pieces, 7 Ways.

Before I set out to shop, I thought I’d do a little online browsing.  Here are some of the pieces that I have my eye on:

Anne Klein Women’s Cap-Sleeve Scoopneck Solid Dress

I love this dress because it can be worn alone or with a cardigan.  You can also mix and match your favorite jewelry with it.  This dress comes in several great colors:  jade, turquoise, paprika, black, and oak, just to name a few.

Wet Seal Women’s Spliced Stripe Maxi Dress

I can wear this alone or throw on a denim jacket or a cute, fitted blazer.  I love the bangle that she’s wearing with this!

Torrid Plus Size Torrid Denim – Rhinestone & Studded Denim Jacket

I love this studded denim jacket.  Makes it just a tad more feminine.

Democracy Women’s Knit Blazer, Coral, Large

Very cute blazer.  And because I don’t branch out much when it comes to color, I’ll definitely keep my eye open for something like this.

Joe’s Jeans Women’s Baggy Fit Lucia

I have a pair of Joe’s Jeans.  They’re a little pricey, but the fit is phenomenal!  Gotta get another pair in a different wash for casual Fridays at work!

Well, I’m going to spend a little more time surfing the web for some great separate pieces.  If you run across any great items while you’re on the web, sent the link my way!

Enjoy your Saturday!!

  1. I love that denim jacket. My recommendation – purchase it right away 🙂 I think the reward for cleaning my closets and giving stuff away is to definitely replenish 🙂

  2. Oh, goody! Let’s go shopping! 🙂

  3. I’m at the point I just want to trash my entire closet and just start OVER!
