What does everyone who cleans out closets tell you?
If you haven’t worn it in a year, get rid of it.
There were four items in my closet that I hadn’t worn in over a year, but I couldn’t bring myself to get rid of them. So this week I challenged myself to wear each item at least once, and then I would have to make a decision to either start wearing it or get rid of it.
I should have taken pictures. But I was in a hurry to get to work, and when I get home I move so quickly to get into my sweatpants that I’m blurry. Lucky for you, I have a junior starter water color kit. So I’ve documented each of the outfits in my own special way. Let’s discuss.
Monday: Statement necklace
I wore it with a navy blue turtle neck and some leopard flats.
I love the big chunky necklaces that everyone is wearing these days. The obvious obsession are those Kate Spade statement necklaces, which cost a whopping $428.
Kate Spade Treasure Chest Statement Necklace. $428. Treasure Chest, Indeed.
I love the sunny yellow color – it’s exactly what I need to brighten up the doldrums of February while I wait for Spring. I may not be in the market for a statement necklace that is quite so spendy, but I am definitely in the market for a pop of yellow.
So I decided to make my own, and I think it does the trick.
You know what they say about dogs that look like their owners...
You can make one too – here’s how I did it!
