filling up the closet.

A few weeks ago, I embarked on a daunting journey: a journey to clean out my closet and embrace my inner Audrey/Zooey/Kathleen.

My purging ceremony resulted in two garbage bags full of Goodwill donations and $9 from Plato’s Closet. (Hey, a girl takes whatever she can get.)

Unfortunately, money I thought I’d be spending on new duds has gone to the husband’s party fund — see how I’m happily embracing this whole “selflessness in marriage” thing? — so I’m left to reimagine the pieces I chose to keep. (Which, as it turns out, wasn’t many.)

In the meantime, I’m dreaming of the following spring/summer items for my newly cleaned closet:

A clutch from Emersonmade

Red (or blue) Toms

khaki shorts

Floral shirt (bonus if it's work appropriate)

Another floral dress (maybe with a denim jacket?)

Floral skirt

A versatile cardigan 

A cute top or two

A lightweight jacket (I'm thinking Boston...)

Did I mention a floral dress?

A good pair of dressy sandals 

Want to know the great part? Everything on this list goes with something already in my closet. And I think Audrey/Zooey/Kathleen would totally approve.
