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 like big bags and I cannot lie

Things I like about this outfit post…

  • my ginormous mom Dooney. I have all my stuff plus crackers, toy trains, and handy wipes for emergencies. It takes over the outfit, but at least I love the color.
  • a haircut! First one in months. The hubs watched the kids and I went to my stylist alone. For an hour. Bliss.
  • my dress, thrifted for $8, it’s 100% silk and comfy
  • the adorable accessories from Tiny Bee that YOU can win in a giveaway!

things I am too old to buy, but I do anyway

I gave away all of my overalls quite some time ago, but I found these recently whilst thrifting, and shamelessly purchased them. From the junior department. For a dollar. I have also recently purchased Bonne Bell lipgloss, a fudge bomb ice cream, and glitter nail polish. It’s summer, when you don’t want to act your age. Um, right?
