Over the weekend Sarah and I went through her closet sorting through what fit, what was her style and colors, and what she wanted to keep.
You see, Sarah is the youngest of our four girls and over the years she has been the recipient of hand me downs. Sometimes, she's been thrilled because she liked a sisters' style, other times she felt she had to take them when she really didn't care for an item. She found that sometimes even though she liked a sisters' style, it wasn't her style, and so she had a lot of clothes in her closet that she hated and never wore. By sorting through she passed two bags to friends, and some became rags.
On Monday, Sarah and I went out to do a bit of clothes shopping for her. We are using a capsule wardrobe as a guideline, but not a hard and fast rule.
She has decided on Navy Blue and Black as her neutrals and she has decided that she prefers muted colors over bright ones.
We found her a dress that has black in it but also has some pinks in the pattern It is very pretty on her.
She also found a casual shirt that she is loving to lounge in.
So now we only need to find, shirts - probably in navy and black, and a few muted colors. She needs shorts, leggings, cropped pants, and a few dresses or skirts.
Have I mentioned she is particular and opininated? (smile) We may have to go to the mall (gasp!) to find more options, or order online.
I'll post again on this topic as we complete her wardrobe.
