Unearthed from my closet

Outfit Details:

blouse - Filene's Basement, skirt - H&M, sweater - Banana Republic, boots - Frye

Todays outfit is composed of three items which haven't seen the light of day for years. I purchased each of the pieces approximately 6-7 years ago, and threw them into the back of my closet shortly after having Maya. (Read: I was depressed that my favourite work horses of my wardrobe were too small for my post-baby weight.)

Last night, I was leafing through my skirts and this one caught my eye. I grabbed the blouse and sweater, and voila... instant outfit with almost no effort or thought.

And I like it.

And I feel good in it.

And I did it through shopping in my closet.

Don't you just LOVE that?

Your items look brand new! I guess you lost all your baby weight :)

Shopping your own closet is definitely the best. I'm doing my best to do this as well.

Thanks eek and kimmie, I am definitely so happy to have found things that feel new to me in my very own closet!

Christina, these are the Frye fiona tall boots from a few seasons ago. Definitely my fave boots in my closet.

Jess, thanks so much. I guess the experts are right when they say to buy good basics, and just update your look with a few items. (I should probably take some of that advice more often. LOL)

You look so good! I imagine it is immensely satisfying to be able to revisit these great staple pieces.
