Shopping my closet II

A few months ago I took everything out of my closet, decluttered a few pieces that I hadn’t worn in ages, cleaned the shelf and washed the floor and then put everything back in. I love a good closet declutter! I hung everything on a hanger facing the wrong way so that, if in six months or so, there was anything remaining on a hanger facing the wrong way I’d know that piece can probably be sold or donated.

One of the pieces still on a hanger facing the wrong way was my chambray shirt. I bought it years ago thinking that I would wear it all the time. That hasn’t been the case. I decided to hit up Pinterest again to see if I could breathe some new life into this piece.

The inspiration:

Shopping my closet

For the past while I’ve been trying to streamline my wardrobe by investing in more quality basics to stretch my closet farther. I’m by no means a minimalist, however, I am totally obsessed with fashion blogs about minimalism and capsule wardrobes. I decided to try shopping my closet to see if I could stretch some of my pieces farther. If you’re looking to streamline as well, you may want to try it. The idea is that you pull a favourite piece and try creating new outfits centered around it with pieces you already own.

Emerald jewels seem like the obvious place to start!
