I am a huge fan of soft blush pinks, neutral beiges and shades of cream and white.
Everything looks so much prettier now that my clothes are sorted according to colour - I love the way these beautiful shades look next to each other.
Beautifying my closet had an added bonus I had not anticipated - I discovered numerous items of clothing which I had quite literally forgotten I even owned. I love the concept of shopping in one's own closet - all the thrill of 'buying' new items, without any of the attendant buyers' remorse. I managed to find 5 pieces of clothing that I have not worn in more than 6 months, and that I had forgotten all about...
This blush pink gauzy top from Portmans (purchased aeons ago, before Portmas went trashy!)
The cutest little pink-and-white candy striped Bracewell ra-ra skirt...
A beautifully-toned shirt from M-One-11. The colours in this are so gorgeous, and the rose pattern, I am so ashamed of myself for having forgotten about it!
My sass&bide sky blue altamount tee. For some reason I have so much trouble styling this shirt, I usually just wear it with skinny jeans, hence it having gotten lost in my summer wardrobe.
This Country Road skirt is actually navy with a pale grey stripe, despite looking black in the photo.
I am going to make it my personal challenge this month to get some serious wear out of these items of clothing, and work them into as many outfits as possible. I am so excited with these 5 fabulous finds, I really do feel as though I've just purchased 5 new items of clothing, at zero cost.
Any suggestions on how I should style these items of clothing? How you would style them yourself? And have any of you been shopping in your closets lately - find any gems?
