This fall I did a journaling project where I wrote on one page all the things in my wardrobe that I truly love.  Items I'd grab in a fire, that I'd keep even if I won the lottery and could replace my entire closet.  This was a great project because it really made it clear the type of things I like (printed maxi dresses, striped shirts, leopard print anything, dark or distressed denim) the things I keep buying THINKING I love them but I don't (leather jackets, work trousers, non-leopard printed shoes), but the best is it really helped me see what I was missing in my wardrobe.

I was missing a leopard skirt.  I had one a few years ago that was almost right, but it was too short and had a wrap style to it.  I wanted a classic straight or pencil skirt, and I wanted a fabric that had heft and texture, and the print wasn't too brown or yellow.  So when I saw this skirt at J. Crew Factory and they were having 40% off I got it.  While I styled it here for a look I'd wear for a night out or a blogger event, this skirt is pretty versatile.  I know I'll wear it to work with my black cashmere crew and opaque tights, a denim shirt, a silk blouse in a bold color.  It's lined, the fabric has a great texture, and it's a classic pattern but in a cool tone that works with my wardrobe of primarily cool neutrals and silver.  And the price was way lower than I thought I'd have to pay for such an item in my wardrobe!

This look is a bunch of favorites, items that made the page in the journal.  And come on, how funny is this shirt?  It may be about Karl Lagerfeld but considering who my husband is, it's a favorite in the tee shirt drawer!

    You look Fabulous! 🙂 I am new to your blog and just love it.
    I recently did a closet clean-out. I have 2 closets, one is current, the other is for off season stuff and clothes I “thought I liked” when I bought them. The closet clean-out helped me rid myself of sweaters that I never wore for one reason or another, tops that I hoped would fit again if I lost 10 lbs. (yeah right), and cargo pants should I ever go on safari. No kidding. Two garbage bags full was all donated, so I unloaded some of the guilt too, and now the closet and I can breathe again.

    This is a great outfit! You look happy in it. Isn’t it something how the right clothes make us feel more comfortable with ourselves? I am curious about what my list of favorites would be since you said you bought things THINKING you liked them. That is pretty interesting!

    I like the graphic t-shirt with the skirt. You’re unlikely to run into somebody in your outfit!
