I have so much clothing just hanging in my closet. I think some of my most sought after pieces have been laying around for years now and I’m a little embarrassed to admit that. I make so many promises to myself, like to wear more of my clothing and to be more productive with my time but I never come through. This summer I’m really, really trying to challenge myself. If something isn’t worn, its gotta go. If I haven’t even considered wearing something in 6 months, I’m selling it or donating it to Value Village. Its been a great challenge so far and I’ve pulled out some pieces that I wouldn’t normally gravitate towards. This dress and vest have been stashed away for God knows how long. I don’t really know how much I love it together but it was cute enough to go walking around for a little while.
Michelle, Gil and I originally set out to go to the Farmer’s Market but we stumbled on a Sugar Haven and kind of went overboard. I’m not a big sweet tooth myself but I couldn’t resist grabbing some candy for myself. Poor Michelle left her sweets in Boston but Gilbert jumped on the grenade and gobbled it up on her behalf. We finished the day off with (WAY too much) sushi and a trip to Trader Joe’s and spent our evening drinking and watching the Lego movie. What a treat! Having Michelle visit was a great way for me to come out of my shell a little. I felt so rejuvenated while she was visiting and even after she left. Being around good people leaves such a positive impact on me and I’m so happy I had a chance to meet her.
