this months theme – closet confidential, and I have been so excited to participate.
I love these kinds of posts – where you get to see more of the person behind the blog and what their style is like. we were encouraged to do a video (AND I WANTED TO!) but wouldn’t you know, my flip died and I don’t have a fancy dslr that does video, my mac is old, and my iphone was full. SO that was needless whining 😉 …but I did take pictures!
just kidding – that is my hot mess of a closet that has been paired down to things I actually wear (I need to do some more pruning in there honestly). going through this weight loss journey has taught me a few things – one of them being that i have too many clothes. I actually now own zero jeans that fit me (woohoo!) so I’m waiting until fall to buy some new ones.
yes, I realize how spoiled I am to have a walk in closet to myself – future husband (wherever you are) I’m sorry, we might not share a closet…you might have to walk down the hall to retrieve your clothes, I’m now completely spoiled.
1 | what is the oldest item in your closet?
these. black. pants. i’ve talked about them before; they are from 9th grade and it was during my punk/rock/goth/whatever phase…and i still love them. a goal of mine has been to fit into them. I can now – which means i will wear them this winter – yes i will wear chained pants, and no, i really don’t care if it is a fashion nono. 🙂 // the picture below is in may when they were still S-N-U-G but now they fit pretty well. (can’t remember where these are from)
2 | what is the newest?
I received this baby at our $5 per bag clothing fundraise for my neighborhood pool.
it is a loft dress that is actually kind of big by itself – but using the ties makes it perfect! I can’t wait to wear it! (fun fact: I’ve never owned a white dress before…or skirt!) (loft)
3 | what is the most expensive?
this bridesmaids dress…that is gorgeous. I actually am waiting until I get rid of my last 20lbs and then I’m having it altered (it’s already too big, yay!). this was around $250 before alterations…sooooo it was a pricey item that I plan to use again! (bella bridesmaid)
4 | what is the biggest bargain
// the first pretty dress was free! yup, my friend was getting rid of it and I snatched it out of her hands…ok I didn’t snatch, I nicely plucked it from a bag she was donating and ran away laughing 🙂 (friend)
// the second dress was a STEAL I got from Ross (love that place). the dress originally sold for $158 and I bought it for $40. I have yet to get it hemmed (I know!) but I sometimes walk around my house in it…just to feel regal; don’t judge me 😉 (ross)
5 | show us your three favorite items right now!
this was pretty hard, i’m not going to lie – so i chose four.
// the green/tealish maxi skirt is so pretty and i love wearing it with a black top. (ann taylor loft outlet)
// the pink dress was a giveaway win from shabby apple. i actually have only worn it three times, and it is starting to get really loose, but it is just so dang beautiful that i can’t let it go yet. (shabby apple)
// the blue cardigan/sweater – swoon. it is actually pretty light and i love all of the swishy fabric. i obviously don’t wear this during the summer – but fall is coming swiftly because i’m ordering it to. (old navy)
// the blue flower dress was another free item from my friend…i haven’t worn it yet – but this will be another fall outfit with a tank and leggings (since it is SHEER!) with booooottttssss. (i’m ready for fall obviously. (target)
this was a lot of fun!
i can’t wait to see some other bloggers share their favorite items!
i am by no means a fashion blogger – and honestly my “personal style” is still developing and all over the place…but it is fun to work with what you have and make new outfits!
maybe i’ll do another one of these posts with me IN the clothes 😉

I love that dress from Ross! And the bridesmaids dress, that is going to be perfect to wear to another event!
I love all your dresses!
That dress from Ross is A-mazing!!!!!
Oh man, I had some pants similar to those. Mine were from Hot Topic (cliche much? ha!) so maybe that's where yours were from too? Anyway, kudos to you for fitting into them again!! 🙂
And I love that white dress!
Oooh, I love ALL these. I think my favorite is the Loft dress…soo cute. You have awesome taste! 🙂
Um, I want your closet. Like really want. There are so many great pieces! 🙂 You already know how much I adore your black dress and I also love teal skirt and cozy Old Navy sweater, too.
Thanks for linking up with us!!!
I love everything, especially the fact that you've got something from 9th grade! 🙂
Yessssss, I love everything about this. Those rocker pants, the maxi dresses, that pink dress! Ahhh! I love getting this little peek into your closet. Watch out, at the retreat I'm gonna steal that sweater when you're not looking. looks so cozy!
