bloomin’ bloomers




{ shorts: MNG by Mango (jcpenney, spring 2011); button-down: Tommy Hilfiger; clutch: vintage eelskin (thrifted); wedges: Antonio Milani (Dillard’s) }

I was thisclose to giving these shorts the boot during my last closet cleaning. Sometimes my compulsive purging leads to lots of regret, so I’ve made a new rule for myself: keep the cast-off bags around the house for at least four weeks, then go through them one last time before dropping them in the donation bin.

I’m glad I rescued them! They’re linen and elastic waist. So basically, they’re like fancy pajamas.

    I have a similar purging strategy. As I’m going through my closet and think “why do I still have this?” I grab that stuff and put it in a bag/box in my closet. Then if I don’t reach in for anything for like, a month or six weeks (depends when I’m consigning or donating) then I get rid of it, AND I force myself not to go through it again. For me that is the clincher.
    Love this look. So cute!
    Also I like the new blog look, but it took me forever to find the comment button.
