radical frugality? reluctantly weeding my closet…very reluctantly


I really try to keep a neat closet. I weed regularly to make room for things I will actually wear. Two pregnancies in three years has made this very difficult because I have been a variety of sizes up and down for so long. Case in point this outfit. I bought both pieces at a larger size (not the largest I achieved, but larger) and now they are both a bit too big. But… I like them and can’t find them again as the shorts were thrift and the blouse long gone from Target racks. So, I still wear them even though I should probably move on. Thoughts of price per wear and being wasteful have kept them in rotation. I think I am being a bit radical in my frugality. After all, I am still working on post preggers pounds, so shouldn’t I let them go? How long do you keep clothing that you most likely should let go, dear reader?

I do apologize if my pants are shouting at you…

My wardrobe bucket list included loud pants and pumps. I wear dresses and wedges just about daily, that is just my clothing m.o. But when Target clearances a loud pant I see no harm in trying them on! That encouraged me to actually wear the pumps lurking in the back of my closet (for several years without one wear). These pants are loud, but I like them just the same- sorry if you feel they are shouting at you in their hideous loud print. We didn’t mean to be rude. Any rude clothes in your rotation lately?

somedays a girl just has to match

I’d like to warmly welcome these pants to my wardrobe, since they might be feeling intimidated by the overage of skirts and dresses …and the lack of trousers. It’s not that I don’t like pants, as one coworker who noticed their lack in my daily wear assumed. It’s just that being short, recently pregnant, and grumpy about said conditions makes pant shopping tedious. So thank you again Target, for being such a good friend to thrifty girls everywhere. And because I was feeling so perky about these fitting, I found two ways to match- my shirt to my shoes and my belt to my purse! Once a Garanimal girl always a Garanimal girl.
