I've been furiously cleaning out my closet even more. I'd say I got rid of at least 1/2 of everything before we moved to Anchorage and I've probably halved the remaining again since we got here. I donated a ton, and consigned some of the best (which is going amazing). And I'm going to go through the closet again today - I only want things in there that really fit into my lifestyle and/or that I absolutely am crazy about. I'm also only allowing myself one clothing purchase a month which I hope will help me focus on more quality things that I love that fit well into my existing wardrobe. (October's purchase is the handmade embroidered blouse from Zara in the picture all the way at the top right.) So far I'm really loving my deeply edited wardrobe.
Also in the spirit of making my life easier, I've decided to stop blogging. I absolutely loved creating outfits on the floor but it was a huge mess, it took a lot of time, and it just simply doesn't fit in my life right now. I'll still be sharing what I'm wearing on Instagram (@Jennifer_heater) and Facebook (you can also drop a line at firstname.lastname@example.org). It seems weird that I need to show off my outfits but it motivates me to keep me getting dressed in a way that I like and not slipping into the frumpy dumps. Which is really easy to do as a stay at home mom living in a city voted "worst dressed" by Travel and Leisure magazine. Heh.
Thank you for everything guys, the few of you that made the move over to Olivine and Opal with me, the people that have supported me for years, and the newer friends I've made. I'll miss it here, but let's be honest it's been coming for a while.
