Gingham Button Down - JCPenny last year; Quilted Navy Sweatshirt Piperlime last year; Jeans from Target 2+ years ago; Timberland Trenton Boots (here or here)
I wore my Timberlands again today. It got me thinking about the boots I usually wear with these jeans which are quite similar. The whole point of this exercise is to get me to do this type of thinking. Why do I have two pairs of brown ankle boots with the same size heel, the same style? Because I do too much impulse buying! I need to take a real inventory of what I have and continue to evaluate everything and get rid of it if it does not fit my style or me! I buy and buy hoping to find the "perfect" things. Truthfully, I don't love either of my brown ankle boots. The other pair are not leather and look a little plasticy. These are a bit too big for my narrow feet and the tops dig into my legs a little. Why can't I have the patience to wait and buy only what truly works for me and is great quality? This is also the reason I have a gazillon pairs of black pants. I'm constantly searching for the perfect pair. Why am I buying the not perfect pairs?
To end on a positive note, I do love this navy sweater/sweatshirt. I have worn it a lot and don't think I have another one like it lurking in my closet.
