Well, summer may officially be over, but it’s still in the mid-eighties up here and I’m still wearing shorts and my TOMS

As much as I’m sure you enjoy viewing my bath towel on the closet door, I need to start paying attention to my backgrounds in indoor photos.  Sorry about that!


I need to confess something: don’t get too excited; it’s not very juicy.  My body has undergone some crazy changes since I turned 29 (or more slowly without my noticing) and many of the items in my closet suddenly don’t fit properly or at all.  I’d been getting incredibly frustrated planning to wear certain things only to find out that they didn’t fit the next morning when I put them on and I was sick of the frustration as well as about feeling unhappy about my body.  So, this weekend, I took control.  I mercilessly tore through my closet and pulled out anything that I either wasn’t wearing lately or that I knew didn’t fit right now and put them in two giant bins.  There’s no pressure to give them away or sell them right now, but my closet currently consists only of items I can and want to wear and I’m liberated from the pressure of too many choices (that aren’t so in actuality).

These shorts are an item that was super baggy for so long and that now fit well so I’ve been wearing them a lot the last week.  Plus, they might only have a couple of weeks left so I want to get all of the wear out of them I can!

Thanks for listening to my rant and nonsense chatter and visiting my Gospel of Style, as always!  :)


  1. This outfit looks great on you. It is so simple, yet very put together. Good for you about cleaning out your closet. It is so nice to know that what is hanging up in your closet is stuff you can actually wear.

  2. I have been trying to get through the jungle of my closet and pull out the weeds. With not much success either. It's hard to be critical about what you are and aren't wearing and then decide if you never want to see it again.

    glad to hear your closet has been refreshed!

    Love you jacket it's just adorable, and summer isn't actually over until the 21st ;)

    Chic on the Cheap

  3. I have the exact same jacket and love it! I never thought about pairing it with shorts. Good choice.
