New Wardrobe - I'm All Done Now

With all the spring cleaning that I've been doing, I decided to stop and try to do something about my wardrobe.  I needed a few more things to carry me over while I am losing this extra 12 lbs, (it just doesn't seem to be going anywhere. - geezzz).  Anyway, I went through the closet and got rid of some things that had seen better days and decided what I needed to carry me through this next spring and summer.

I've been on a roll with buying some play and casual clothes that I showed you here and here.  However, after purging things I realized that I really needed a couple of things that would carry me out to dinner and to church.  I made a trip to the mall and stopped in at Nordstroms since they were having some drastic sales in the hopes I could find a couple of bargains.

  I found this really pretty polka-dot silk blouse.  I love polka-dots, so fun.  Marked down from $99 to $39.


I had already bought some new black slacks and a new pair of jeans, so some cream lined silk pants that I found on  the clearance rack marked down from $149 to $59 were the perfect addition.


I also found this cream pair of slacks.  Love the style, so cute on.  They were marked down from $129 to $49.  These three pieces will be perfect for several years and if I ever lose this weight, I can have them tailored since they are good pieces.


I had to make a stop in Target and I never remember to look at their clothes, however I took a walk through and found some really cute things.  Love this knit top, it will be so easy to dress up for a night out, or for church.  It was $9 on sale.


I found this draped neck one also, it was only $7 on sale.  These are nicer looking knit fabric and if I take them to the cleaners, they will look good for several seasons.


This little peasant blouse will be so fun for summer and casual wear, and when you find something that looks really cute, I usually buy multiple colors if I can.


So, I bought this print one too.  How fun are they.  They were on sale for $15 each.

Ok, so I am done now.  Closet purged and new clothes pressed and in place.  I am all set.  I love it when I can just look in the closet and immediately see outfits that I know fit and will work for multiple occasions.  I don't think you have to have a ton of clothes, just pieces that you like, are comfortable and can mix and match to make several different outfits.  I also like to have a couple that can be dressed up if need be for that special occasion.

So have you been Spring cleaning the house and your wardrobe?

  1. Looks like you found some very cute mix and match items. I love it when things can be changed around to create new looks. Sure makes packing a suitcase for a weekend getaway, a breeze. I have been having fun going through my space-bags and finding spring and summer clothes that I have not been able to get into in seven years. Some are outdated, but many are fine and it sure feels good to zip them up again. Thank heaven for weight watchers. I join last January 2011 and I’ve lost 54 pounds, not bad for an old gal . . . and boy do I feel better.

  12. Hi my friend! I can imagine you look charming in anything you wear. But, I especially love the pheasant blouses. I have several and they wear well even when I work with some slacks and dress flats. Hope you have a wonderful weekend. Blessings, Barb

  15. Marty you are going to be styling!!! You know how much I love polka dots and cream pants are a must!! Love the one's with the ties, they would look darling with a plain white t-shirt and a fun necklace and some gold or silver sandles depending on the necklace. Good for you!! It sounds as if you are all set!! xo Kathysue

  18. You made some really smart choices to mix and match....dress up or down!!! Love the peasant blouses, have to get to Target soon!!! Most of my summer wardrobe has come from K-Mart....I know that sounds wacky but I find the best t-shirts, pullovers and shorts there for ridiculous prices, and they hold up after washing!!! Everyone always asks where I get those nice t-shirts.......

  19. You found some adorable things and you're all set for spring.

    I live in an old house with small closets that I have to switch out with the season, so I purged spring/summer last fall when I made the switch. I'll wear winter for another month and then it's on to spring. I got a new spring dress last weekend that I can't wait to wear!

  20. Love your choices. Isn't it great to know you are ready for spring. I put back on 10 pounds this winter, so now I am working on getting it off so I can zip up my spring clothes :)

  28. FYI, if you volunteer to 'model' (walk around the store in their clothes) at a Christopher&Banks store you get 40% off of everything that day. Also if you spend an hour greeting at the door, handing out flyers for their sale, you get 50% off everything that day. They do this event with every season change. It is a great way to get a baic wardrobe you can add to seasonally. The next one is May 18.
