We’re already having some cooler days here in the lovely Pacific Northwest, and I’m anxious to get shopping for some warm fall clothing. But first, I need a clear picture of what I have to work with:
If all these clothes coordinated AND fit me, I would have plenty of wardrobe options to take me through the fall and winter. However, after I put my summer clothes and maternity wear in storage, and set aside a big ol’ pile of things to donate, I was left with this:
Casual clothes (including a short winter coat) are on the left; dressy clothes on the right.
Clothes that are more than a size too small are in zippered bags under my bed. But I have a small pile of things that are just a smidgen too tight:
I won’t hang these with my main wardrobe, but I will keep them folded on the top shelf of the closet to make it easy to try them on throughout the season. Because I hope to be too small for them by NEXT fall!
Not pictured: a pair of jeans that fits me. Because I don’t own such a pair. Also not pictured: my workout clothes, a tan trench coat, several pairs of shoes which will appear in future posts, and lots of scarves. Thank goodness for those scarves; I’ll need to accessorize like mad to get some mileage out of this wardrobe.
