Day #33 – Pruning the Garden

Clothing Object: LOFT Grey Floral cut-out sleeve sweater


Rating: 8/10
I apologize for the lack of creativity lately as I dip into my more recent closet purchases. This is a sweater I bought last spring on sale at LOFT and somehow forgot about. It’s a thinner material and I liked the unique floral cut-outs on the shoulders that weren’t overwhelming. It’s definitely more of a spring/summer sweater and I love that it has an easygoing feel to it. Here I decided to match it with my newly purchase J. Crew brown leather belt (on sale: here) and brown accessories/shoes. Also noted that I did end up ironing my sweater before leaving for small group for the night but I forgot to take post-ironing photos. 

Verdict: Keep

So I’m a bit OCD when it comes to note-taking and list-making. I find that when projects start to lose their initial momentum, organization and planning is the key to keeping things alive. If you’ve ever been curious as to how I decide what to feature on my blog from my closet, here is your answer:

Day #30 – Gloom and Doom

Clothing Object: LOFT Olive green waffle sweater

It was super gloomy today so I wore a super neutral outfit to go with the weather. This is the olive version of the sweater I featured in this  post that I bought last year on sale. Here I wore it with my usual collared shirt pairing and shiny black tights. I’ll be honest, I’m not a huge fan of layering sleeved button downs under sweaters because 90% of the time I find it too stuffy. I actually have a small collection of chiffon button-down sleeveless tops from H&M that I use for layering under sweaters. They’re handy because they can also be worn in the summer under light cardigans without all the weird sleeve bunching. Also I apologize again for the weird lighting and odd posing (the CLAWW). And now that I’ve said it, that’s all you’re going to see. Heh. 

Verdict: Keep
