The Little Lightbulb


What I'm wearing: J.Crew painter tee, Gap Always Skinny jeans, Steve Madden flats via DSW, Vintage earrings, Scarf via NYC street vendor

I had never thought to pair this top and scarf together before, but as I unpacked when I got home for break, they ended up next to each other in a stack. I liked how the colors looked together, and a little lightbulb went off in my head. I love when that happens--it's like your wardrobe does the work for you. It also makes me wonder how many untapped combinations exist in my closet. When I buy new items (which I've been doing a lot lately...oops), I need to make more of a conscious effort to immediately play around with them and see how they look with things I already own. Basically, I need to learn how to play "dress up" in my own closet. Along those lines, I've also been working on a major closet cleanout since I've been home. I have tons of stuff just sitting in my closet at home that I NEVER wear, so I've started a big donation pile. I also have some items that I'm hoping to refashion; if I do, I'll share some before and after pictures!

I always think about all the untapped outfits in my closet. A lot of times I don't think of an outfit and then see one on a blog. Why couldn't I think of that? Haha. Love the colors together.

I love the top and scarf together. And I really love the scarf. That lightbulb moment happened to me yesterday when I stacked my clean laundry to take upstairs. 2 sets of things that will be good outfits. Dontcha just love it?
