What I Wore Wednesday

I recently went through all of my What I Wore Wednesday posts and boy was it enlightening. One of the things that I love about the idea of posting pictures is being able to see how you look and to go back and review the looks. Pictures are HUGE for me. They tell me so much. I determine how I like a haircut by pictures, I even changed wedding dresses (after the first one was purchased and altered) for a new one after seeing myself in it in a picture. I can really see how I look in things through pictures.

After going through all of my past posts I realized that I had some not so good "looks". I ask myself "why did I post that", HA! I have always been a pretty classic dresser wearing mostly jeans and tops and dresses. I've not ever really been much on skirts and tops, too much to put together, and never have been much on accessories. I think I just tried to get creative with my looks when I started these posts. I started thrifting which has been fun and I have found some great items, but I have also found some not so great items.

Well, after the realization that some of my outfits just didn't hit the mark for me I purged my closet taking it back to the basics, the things that I love and love to wear. Boy did I purge. I had little piles in my closet of things that I was afraid to get rid of because I might wear them again, stuff that I haven't worn in years - work clothes that are out of style and things that I just shouldn't be wearing, and stuff that I should have never brought in in the first place. I tried a lot of things on and tried to create new looks and use them in new ways. If I couldn't figure it out, out they went. I'm so happy with the results and getting ready will be so much easier. I might not have as many things too choose from but I know what is left are things that work for pictures anyways!

Here are a few of my looks for this week
