my closet is overwhelming me

sweater, skinnies and a statement necklace



being able to shop again is weird. the even weirder thing?

my closet, with its newest additions, is incredibly overwhelming. my brain has so many new combinations speeding through it i’m having a hard time focusing and picking something to wear for the day. (don’t worry, i’m making myself. no going without clothes here.)

since my initial shopping trip, i’ve added two items to my closet:

  • the perfect tan belt {the exact one i’d wanted at target on sale for $5!}
  • and a pair of black and gold earrings. {one of my most-worn color combos. also on a ridiculous sale at target.}

i have yet to wear either…

    I love this look, Caitlin! Annnnd yes, I agree about the overwhelming factor. I try not to go too crazy with buying stuff and filling my closet, and now that I finally have a good mix and match wardrobe I’m like SHEESH there are a billion combinations–why do I ever want to shop?

      Thanks Audrey! LOL! So true. PS I’m so far behind on reading, but I’m PUMPED to catch up and read your newest series. It looks so good. Prepare yourself for a barrage of comments.

    I’ve had the same problem since I added some new pieces to my wardrobe. When your wardrobe is highly remixable (that’s so not a real word but whatever) it can be overwhelming. I try to pick one piece that I really want to wear and build my outfit around it. If I have several ideas for that piece, I create ensembles on GCOGH or I just write them down for later (you could Evernote them :) ).

      I think we should apply for it to be a word. It totally works :) That’s a good idea! I haven’t come up with a good system for remembering outfits later on. I’ve been trying to simplify social media, so I haven’t ventured into using GCOGH. I might have to give a try though! You and Audrey almost have me sold :)
