This weekend, motivated by all the wardrobe encapsulation chit chat as well as my need to pack large amounts of clothing, I got caught up in a vortex of closet cleaning and reorganization. Although I’m still refusing to make a set capsule, I did put a bunch of stuff in bags for Goodwill and my drawers and shelves seem much more manageable and less cluttered.

Now, I need to work on the closet itself. Fortunately or unfortunately, I have a lot of business attire that I have trouble getting rid of. I feel like a lot of my professional life is still “in flux” right now and I don’t want to pitch a bunch of things, only to have to buy all new clothes in two years. Perhaps I’ll apply the same rules that I used for the rest of my stuff:

  • If it doesn’t fit, it doesn’t stay.
  • If I don’t like wearing it, it doesn’t stay.
  • If it’s needed repairs for more than 6 months, it definitely doesn’t stay.

Two trash bags full met this criteria — which is sort of gross, when you think about it. I’m hoping that, as winter wears on, I’ll get a better idea of what in my closet I can get rid of.

Moving on, here’s what I wore Sunday:

Here's an outerwear shot. We were all waiting to see Nik Wallenda walk over the Chicago River.

Sequins, dots and very little actual effort. Hip hip hooray!
