On the bright side, I have this plaid trapeze coat to wear

I am all about having a streamlined, organized closet, especially in the new year. I try to be strict about what I can keep and what is too much of a good thing. But when your weight is fluctuating as much as mine has the past couple of months, it’s helpful to be somewhat of a packrat. Did I need to keep this little plaid coat when I have so many vintage coats and not much cold weather? Well, no.  But it does make me smile when I wear it lately because it’s cheery, bright, and covers the bump completely.

By all means, weed that closet. But think carefully about pieces that tug your heartstrings… a piece you part with just might make a hard week a little brighter.

    I’ve just had a wardrobe detox this afternoon, been very ruthless and will take my unwanted items down to the charity shop tomorrow before I start back at work. I’m a little OCD with my wardrobe as everything is colour coordinated!

    I love your jacket, it is beautiful – as are you!

    Happy new year!

    What a gorgeous coat! I love checked fabrics. And I didn’t know you were pregnant, now I feel ashamed that I haven’t been so long on your blog! I know I’m late with this, but what wonderful news!

    That really is the perfect fall coat! And I am a shameless pack rat when it comes to vintage clothing. My closet is filled with all sorts of funny Edwardian underthings and slightly damaged dresses that I just can’t bear to part with (but aren’t really practical either)! I just fall for misfit bits of clothing at the back of closets at estate sales and want to take them under my wing! Vintage girls are weird. ;)

    The coat looks phenomenal, I wish I could look that put together. I’d be honored if you’d take a look at my blog. I’ve got a little giveaway on there right now from my shop: http://ramblinggallivantinggirl.blogspot.com/2013/01/giveaway-time-win-free-print.html

    Recently I was REALLY low on cash and debts were eating me from all sides! That was UNTIL I decided to make money.. on the internet. I went to surveymoneymaker dot net, and started filling in surveys for cash, and surely I’ve been far more able to pay my bills!! I’m so glad, I did this!!! With all the financial stress these years, I really hope all of you will give it a chance. – ittc
