Code Blue

how to wear colored jeans winter

Lately, I’ve been obsessed with shopping my closet instead of the stores.  As a result,  I’ve stumbled upon a ton of things in my closet that I’d completely forgotten about.

Today’s outfit is filled with old goodies with the exception of the shimmery blouse and these fantastic collared pumps; I got each for a steal (top – $9 from $69.50 and shoes – $35 from $110).  My favorite thing about this outfit is this pair of electric blue jeans.  I absolutely love them, especially the fit; and, surprisingly, I’ve never worn them.  Sad, I know.

Anyway, shopping my closet more has allowed me to see how little I need.  It’s also helped to somewhat curb my shopping habit and to make wiser purchases.  I hope you all give shopping your closet a try before creating enormous wish lists and hitting the malls this holiday season.

Thanks for reading.

    Thanks!! I love shopping my closet. It's made me realize that the only things I really need are basics.

    I shop my closet and also get rid of stuff through consignment.

    I really love shopping my closet. I've found so many great pieces that I hadn't worn in a while. I might try doing consignment to get rid of some of the things I no longer need.
