On Wednesdays we wear pink! Well, it’s not shorts season anymore, but I (still) wanted to publish these photos. And also because I just heard Conan O’Brien Needs a Friend episode with Tina Fey and it was hilarious! They are two of my favorite comedians ever. If you haven’t listened to Conan’s podcast yet, I highly recommend it!
Anyway, this shorts suit was the perfect ‘lil summer suit. It was such a steal compared to some other shorts suits I had found, but I think this one did it’s job – which was to make me happy 😊 I really do (still) get so excited and happy about clothes. People at work always ask me if my closet is exploding or how I put pieces together. Honestly, I try not to shop a lot and to rewear my favorite pieces. I do have a virtual closet and sell a lot of my clothes or I donate them. I also like borrowing clothes from my family. As for putting together pieces, it’s really just in my head and sometimes the best looks I have worn have been put together in under a minute because I’m usually late for work and just grab whatever is clean and hanging in my closet.
For fall, I’d like to find a classic suit in a basic color. At the beginning of each season, I also like to make a wishlist of items that I think I can incorporate into my closet. So far on the list is snakeskin print shoes, a classic handbag, and some fitted bodysuits that can we worn layered or for a night out. I try to put at least ten things on this list and see what’s actually feasible to get within budget and versatility. That way, I’m not just buying every good deal that I see. Let me know if you have a shopping or creative process when it comes to updating your closet.
Hope everybody is having a fetch week so far!
