Only 5 more days of this challenge! Woo hoo! I’ll tell you what, my inspiration is running really low guys. It’s harder every day to come up with something to wear. This challenge is really taking its toll, but I know I will have a much more manageable closet situation in a few more days.
It’s partly sunny today and it’s supposed to be 75 degrees or so, so I really didn’t want to wear jeans today. Plus, the only casual jeans or pants that I haven’t already worn as part of this challenge and/or haven’t already been eliminated from my wardrobe, are bootcut jeans. I still like bootcut jeans, don’t get me wrong, but sometimes they feel a little dated, too. I have an Old Navy denim mini skirt from maybe 2005 that I decided would be the winner today.
Yeah, it’s short, but what the heck? I shaved my legs, so I’m not in danger of scaring anyone by wearing a skirt! And since I haven’t worn this skirt in several years, I needed to see how ridiculous it looked (or felt) wearing a mini skirt in order to make an informed decision about whether to keep this old skirt. And honestly, I didn’t feel too silly when I put it on, so I that’s a good sign.
I found this silver shimmery Old Navy sweater from 2013 in the bottom of a pile of clothes that I keep intending to go through. I don’t think I have worn this sweater in over a year, so it’s high time to put in back into the rotation. It’s lightweight enough to wear in the Spring, but can also be worn in the winter. I can wear it at work and at play, so it’s pretty versatile.
I threw on a silver and bronze necklace from H&M that I bought for $3 and a pair of silver sequined loafers to complete the look.
BUT WILL SHE KEEP IT? Yes. As long as my legs still look decent, and don’t have that saggy old lady knee action (it’s getting close, trust me) I don’t mind busting out a mini skirt every now and again. And the sweater is a keeper, I just need to put it in a more prominent place in my closet so I don’t lose track of it again.
Have a good one!
